Tony Parker has finally opened up about his pending divorce with Eva Longoria.

In an interview with France’s Le Parisien newspaper, the NBA star stated that remaining strong mentally is the most important thing to do during a time like this.

“The most important thing is to stay strong mentally, even if these are very difficult times. I’ve taken refuge in basketball because that’s what I’ve done best since my youth.

Parker went on to add that he relies on the “support of [my] teammates, coaches and San Antonio,” along with, “my family. My whole family has been around me through this.”

His prime focus now is being successful on the court.

“You have to know how to keep things in perspective. I am, first of all, a basketball player. I’ve done this for so very long … For me, it’s been essential to be successful on the court.”

Smart man.
