News: Parker all set for France next year

The undisputed leader of the French national team is ready to comeback to international tournaments. In a interview to a French TV channel San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker declared that barring injuries he'll be at next year's Eurobasket and he already warned his club about it. The 28-year-old recently failed to help Les Bleus at the World Championship, in which France finished 13th with three wins and three losses.
Also according to Parker, another two French NBA players, Joakim Noah (Chicago Bulls) and Ronny Turiaf (New York Knicks) are also determined to help France reach the top four places of the tournament to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics.
The last time Parker was with the national side was in Eurobasket 2009, where he guided France to a 5th place and was the competition's second top scorer with 17.8 points per game behind Spain's Pau Gasol.
