In just a few words from now, I am going to type a sentence that we all know is true but is still almost unbelievable in it’s “What?”-ness. Here it comes.

Tony Parker suffered potentially serious eyeball damage because he was hit with glass from broken bottles while partying in a New York City nightclub when a fight over Rihanna between Drake and Chris Brown broke out.

That is a real thing that really happened, and because of it, Tony Parker is wearing what appears to be a pair of swimming goggles while playing basketball for the French national team. I don’t know why he didn’t go with the standard Oakley, some Rec Specs or anything that looks basketball-ish at all. Instead, I guess, he just likes the miniature ski goggles approach. Safety first, of course, but still an interesting choice.

The only thing we can know for sure is that Russell Westbrook is super jealous his cornea didn’t get scratched.

  4. He should really have gotten a pair of Horace Grants from ’95. Those were some classy goggles. The blue would work with ‘le bleu’.

  5. Trey, more research please: This f*****g hipster is going with a manufacturer that exists since 1888. Let’s talk about retro. And they have quite the hipster website: http://www.bolle.com

  6. These look to be the same style of glasses as Edgar Davids used to wear – hardly new or hipster…

  7. Cornea. If his retina got scratched he’d be straight up BLIIIIINNNNDDDDD

  12. He didn`t go with Oakley because the sunglasses of Oakley are VERY uncomfortable and poor optical quality. Bolle was manufacturing Sunglasses when the founder of Oakley wasn`t even alive yet…

    Your comment was very poor my friend. Bolle is the only sports brand that also produce safety glasses and goggles. Bolle develops technology, while Oakley is focusing in advertising.

    Who wants quality, for sure will choose Bolle!
