The U.S. men's basketball team will see a familiar face - Spurs star Tony Parker - when it faces off against France.
"I've been chasing that dream for, like, 10 years," Parker told NBC Sports. "It was very important for me."
Parker may be wearing goggles because of the injury he suffered in the Chris Brown-Drake nightclub melee. And before you chuckle at that, a piece of glass from a broken bottle nearly cost the basketball star his eye. (7:30 a.m., NBCSN and NBC basketball channel)
