NBA playoff action always brings the best in fans. And in Memphis, some soccer moms decided to get extra ratchet and catch the Spurs’ Tony Parker off guard with some cross-the-line signs. They were awesome.
What better way to get into the star point guard’s head than by going way below the belt and holding up an Eva Longoria head cutout? Now that’s next level sh*t. The pair was famously married and divorced amid rumors of the two swinging with former teammate Brent Barry and his wife Erin.
And in game 2 of the western conference finals, which the Spurs ultimately won to go up 3-0, two fans gave Tony a harsh reminder about what has transpired in his life. Something he surely wants to forget.

Tony still pulled out with the win, proving once and for all that he is over her. He finished with 26 points and went 3-3 from free throw, where the signs were conveniently located.
A similar incident happened like this in 2011 when Parker took a trip to New Orleans to face the Hornets. He ended up closing that game too as these Eva signs are more good luck for him than anything.
This was when the pair was together, so it was less awkward I guess. Imagine if everyone in Memphis was wearing an Eva mask for game 4. Now there’s no way he would be able to perform as the Grizzlies may need just that to get an edge.
