The 2012 Olympic basketball tournament is over with Team U.S.A. leaving with gold. Heading into the tournament, Team France with San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker, and Boris Diaw was considered a strong medal contender but unfortunately, France came up way short and finished sixth overall.
But Team France's disappointing finish in London didn't stop the team from dropping a whopping $20,000 worth of alcohol at a London nightclub with the German women's volleyball squad.
It all went down at Chinawhite Nightclub in London ... San Antonio Spurs studs Tony Parker and Boris Diaw rolled in with their French team Thursday night ... a mere 24 hours after losing to Spain and sealing their elimination from medal contention.
Parker, Diaw and the rest of Team Frenchy popped multiple bottles of Cristal and a magnum-sized Veuve Clicquot ... along with other effective libations.
And they didn't party alone ... sources tell us several members of Germany's women's volleyball team were kickin' with the baskeballers.
But someone had to pay that gigantic bill and that "honor" fell to Diaw who is apparently one great tipper and left a $2,000 tip.
You know, you would think after TP's last experience at a nightclub (getting hit in the eye with glass which required surgery) would have taught him a lesson but apparently not. Then again, Chris Brown and Drake were not in the club so TP was in the clear.
Not to be the conductor of the TP hate train again, but this story was a little too easy. Parker and Diaw go to party in London after crumbling late in their first meaningful Olympic game against Spain. They could have easily won through execution and better defense but no matter. You would think that Parker, like Ginobili, would be crushed with such an agonizing defeat as this was probably France's best chance to medal in basketball in decades. However, Parker instead decides to live it up in the clubs instead of reflecting on what he could have done to be better prepared for the Olympics (maybe not go out with Chris Brown and get glass in your eye). Even after almost having a career ending eye injury in a club just 2 months ago, Parker goes back. How much of an idiot can you be? This is not the Spurs way. Contrasting Ginobili's reaction to defeat in this Olympics with Parker's give us a perfect picture of who these two men are: one is hard-working and tries his hardest every time he steps on to a basketball court, and the other plays so that he can go out and party the next day. What a joke.
