Dick Vitale Praises Tony Parker in Response to Eva Longoria's NBA Finals Tweet

ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale is known for his colorful commentary. After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, he showed that his range extends beyond the college hardwood, offering a hilarious response to Eva Longoria's NBA Finals prediction on Twitter.

When Longoria tweeted her support for the Spurs, predicting that they would win the series against the Miami Heat in five games after taking Game 1, Vitale decided that he would chime in by praising Longoria's ex-husband—Tony Parker.

Longoria was married to the San Antonio Spurs point guard for three years before the two filed for divorce in 2011. According to Longoria's recent interview on The Dr. Oz Show, the split was not an easy one to deal with, per the New York Post.

Neither Longoria nor Parker can seem to evade their highly-publicized marriage and subsequent divorce. Memphis Grizzlies fans brought out the Eva Longoria posters during the Western Conference Finals, and now Dickie V has joined in on the fun.

Parker certainly was, as Vitale would say, "Mr. Clutch." He went off for 21 points and six assists on 9-of-18 shooting on the night, leading all scorers.

With the Spurs up 90-88 with under 10 seconds left, Parker, guarded by LeBron James, lost his balance on the right wing. Instead of losing possession and opening the door for a Heat buzzer-beater, Parker kept his dribble, pivoted past LeBron and banked in an off-balance jumper to seal the win.

Parker's big shot stunned the Miami crowd and seized home-court advantage for the Spurs.

With the Miami Heat defending their championship and the Spurs looking up to the task of challenging them for it, this should be an awesome series, baby!
