Sacre bleu! TP spends summer having fun with a rocket pack

There’s supposed to be no formal communication between players and their teams during this lockout. Team officials aren’t even supposed to be reading the web pages or twitter accounts of their wayward employees. 

But if they could, I can only imagine some of the comments that might be coming from Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford as they  look at .

Spurs point guard Tony Parker spent part of a day earlier this week trying out a jet pack as he soared over a French beach.

It looked like fun. But I’ve always been fascinated by Rocket Packs since those that were shown for Keds Shoes when I was kid back in the 1960s.

Hopefully, Parker was having enjoying himself as much as it appeared in the picture, which was posted on his web site.

But I bet these aren’t the kind of activities that Popovich and Buford have in mind for their starting point guard — particularly after the trade of top backup George Hill last month.
