Tony Parker Wins Little Kid a Watch After Hitting Half-Court Shot

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterSeptember 4, 2012

It turns out Tony Parker is a handy person to have around when you are busy trying to hit half-court buckets. 

This video (h/t Yahoo! Sports) opens with the young man shooting a ball that falls way short of the rim. No worries, because an NBA superstar is nearby in Tony Parker. 

The Spurs guard takes the ball like a real superhero and sinks the bucket from distance as if he were practicing free throws. 

For his troubles, the kid gets a free watch. Those are the things people used to wear on their wrists to tell time. Look it up on Wikipedia, because it's a real thing. 

The charity event, called Babac'Ards, also featured Ronny Turiaf and Nicolas Batum. 

According to the report, Babac'Ards is a play on Diaw's middle name and is a "charity founded by Diaw...to foster programs aimed educating French youth about environmental issues, civic responsibilities, preventive health care, gender equality and more."

They forgot to mention the organization also gives out free heart-warming moments and tender embraces between kids and their athlete idols.

Next time I'm looking to hit a half-court shot or need a free watch, I will look around for Tony Parker, sharpshooting superhero.
