San Antonio Spurs star guard Tony Parker has apologized after he and teammate Boris Diaw were thrust into a national controversy in France over what some have perceived as an anti-Semitic gesture.
Parker released a statement Monday afternoon, saying that while the gesture has been a part of French culture for many years, it was not until recently that I learned of the very negative concerns associated with it."
Photos of the gesture were published by media outlets in France on Sunday. You can view one such photo, published by Yahoo! Sports, here ->> http://yhoo.it/JpY3sM
