Searching the web today I came across something pretty interesting.  Did any of you know that Tony Parker was minutes away from being a Boston Celtic?  Yeah, made your jaw drop right?  Tony Parker sat down with an interview with Bill Simmons (The BS Report) over the All-Star break and Tony talked about many of things including that of being minutes away – draft hat in hand – to becoming a Boston Celtic.  The Celtics did pull away at the last minute (thank goodness) drafting Joseph Forte.

Below you can check out the full interview. The interview is really good and lasts for 13+, well worth it.
