Tony Parker is retiring. After 18 seasons in the NBA, 17 with the San Antonio Spurs, he made the announcement on ESPN's "The Undefeated." The 37-year-old's last season was with the Charlotte Hornets.
During his career, Parker won four championships with the Spurs.
ESPN's Marc Spears asked Parker if he would eventually come back to the NBA as a general manager or president.
\uD83C\uDDFA\uD83C\uDDF8 It’s with a lot of emotion that I retire from basketball, it was an incredible journey! Even in my wildest dreams, I never thought I would live all those unbelievable moments with the NBA and the French National Team.
Thank you for everything! https://t.co/YKqTlnkG90

For now he plans to stay in San Antonio. He will also spend time in his native France, where he's the owner and president of a professional men's and women's basketball club. He's also opening an academy there.
