Fourth-Place Medal

Manu Ginobili has a foolproof plan to stop Tony Parker and his goggles

Fourth-Place Medal

As he recovers from the eye injury he sustained in the now-infamous Drake/Chris Brown nightclub brawl, French basketball star Tony Parker has worn not-very-cool-but-perfectly-functional sports goggles. It's not the most fashion-forward look for a basketball player, but it's the situation he finds himself in during these Olympics. Parker is still his country's best player by a considerable margin, though the goggles likely make him a little uncomfortable: In Sunday's 98-71 loss to Team USA, Parker managed just 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting.

Yet plenty of stars should have difficulty dominating the Americans in this tournament, and Parker remains the Frenchman all opponents will do everything to stop. On Tuesday, France faces Argentina at 3 p.m. ET in the second game of group play. Argentinian star Manu Ginobili, Parker's NBA teammate with the San Antonio Spurs, has a special plan to keep Parker from playing his best. From Buck Harvey for The San Antonio Express-News (via PBT):

"Go right up to him," Ginobili said, "and go 'whooo!'"

Ginobili blew air out of his mouth.

"That should fog up his goggles," he said.

Anyone who has worn glasses right after getting out of the shower knows that this is a foolproof plan, right up there with the time-honored Harlem Globetrotters tactic of tossing a bucket of confetti in someone's face. I know that the Olympics preach sportsmanship and fair play, but surely such guidelines fall apart when the structure of competition can collapse in one very long second. I say go for the fogging trick, Argentina!

All jokes aside, Tuesday's matchup between France and Argentina should be very watchable. Both lineups are full of quality NBA players, and the Parker/Ginobili "opposing teammates" battle adds an extra layer of intrigue. If you're able to tune in before Team USA takes on Tunisia, I highly recommend it. You might even see some pranks!
