Tony Parker had himself some unauthorized alone time with the Larry O’Brien trophy after the San Antonio Spurs won the NBA title, but he had a great reason for it. During his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, Parker admitted that he stole the championship trophy so he could bring it home and snap a photo with his newborn baby.
“Actually, I stole the trophy the night of the celebration,” Parker told Kimmel while discussing the photo. “I stole it. True story. I was like, ‘I want to keep the trophy tonight.’ So I left with it and everybody was calling me like, ‘Tony did you take the trophy?’
“I’ll bring it back tomorrow. I just wanted to take a picture with Josh. I wanted to have a good memory, so I took it.”
Parker has helped the Spurs win four of those bad boys, so I’m sure nobody minded. Hey, it’s better than what Mark Cuban did with the Larry O’Brien trophy after the Dallas Mavericks won it a few years back.
