If you're wondering why anyone would be talking about a beef between two hip hop/R&B stars on a sports website, it's because Tony Parker suffered a scratched cornea in the melee, and might miss the London Olympics.

This greatly hurts France's medal hopes, as Parker is their best player and one of the top 5 point guards on the planet.

If he's unable to play in London, France transforms from a legitimate medal contender to a team on the brink of disaster.

Their best remaining players are Joakim Noah and Boris Diaw, and they'll likely be stuck with Andrew Albicy running the point. Albicy is serviceable, but he's no Tony Parker.

Their first game is against Team USA on July 29, in a game I believe will be dominated by the Americans. After that, it will only continue to go downhill for the French.

The moral of the story: Stay away from Chris Brown. He'll get you injured.
