(Newser) – Tony Parker has come a long way since 2003, when the Spurs were flinging woo at Jason Kidd, whose Nets Parker had just helped beat for his first championship.

Parker, 6'2", 25, will also be marrying Desperate Housewives stunner Eva Longoria, 5'2", 32, on 7/7/07.  Said a San Antonio sports columnist: "It's like an Elvis movie, where you show up, you win the leading lady and you win the race, too." (Read more NBA stories.)
