In the midst of the NBA playoffs, Tony Parker revealed something truly awesome about himself.
No, we’re not talking about his toughness, playing on a hamstring that could “tear anytime.”
Tony Parker is apparently a huge nerd about The Avengers.
With Comic-Con just wrapping up in San Diego, pictures are now surfacing from Parker’s Facebook account of a couple collectibles that every geek would give up his Magic The Gathering card collection to add to his collection.
Before the series against the Warriors started, Parker posted photos of himself and former Spur Fabricio Oberto on his Facebook page standing in front of Iron Man and The Hulk captioned, “Look who was at my house yesterday!!!! One of my fav teammate [of] all time!!!! Fabiooooooooo”
No word on if, when or how the Spurs point guard may have acquired the “life-sized” action figures — or if they were just visiting in between missions, why he chose to pose in front of them for this occasion or, finally, why it took this long for the world to notice.
Unfortunately for Parker, The Avengers 2 isn’t scheduled to be released until 2015. What will he do with all that free time?
