MANHATTAN — Basketball player Tony Parker's injuries were so severe from a bottle-tossing brawl allegedly sparked by Chris Brown and Drake's warring entourages last month that he almost lost the use of his left eye.
"I can say today that I almost lost my eye," Parker said over the weekend.
"An eye is so fragile," he added. "I was in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Doctors removed the glass from Parker's eye Sunday and are still determining whether he will be able to compete in the Olympics, which start July 29, Parker, 30, said.
"The Spurs are very worried. Because of these [medical] results, anything could happen," he said. "The decision isn't mine anymore. It's in the hands of the doctor and San Antonio."
Parker — who has filed a $20 million lawsuit against WIP, the 34 Vandam St. club where the bottle-throwing melee occurred June 14 — said the injury caused hallucinations and that he was applying five different medications into his eye every two hours.
Parker, who will make $12.5 million this year according to ESPN.com, declined to speak about the lawsuit.
The brawl allegedly began after Drake sent a note to Brown that read "I'm still f---ing Rihanna," sources said.
