Basketball Sensation Tony Parker Wasn't even interested in playing the sport at first. During his childhood in France, he initially had a greater interest in soccer than in hoops. However, it wasn't too long before he chose to pursue a basketball career, just as his father had. As a teenager, Tony became a hot junior league prospect in Europe. When he was 19 years old, he ventured over to the United States and was drafted by the National Basketball Association's San Antonio Spurs.
