Parker gets cheers from Spurs fans

Then it was his meeting with his current head coach to celebrate the win! The loss dropped the Spurs to 25-20.

Parker's return also prompted a candid response from head coach Gregg Popovich, who talked about his special relationship with his long-time point guard. It was a little bit of everything.

"I'm really excited for Tony", James Borrego said. Spurs fans showered the future Hall of Famer with cheers, which is completely deserved.

He hit a couple of jump shots and made a couple of buckets off vintage Tony Parker drives. The Hornets also stopped an 11-game slide in San Antonio.

"Ten days, two weeks before, I'm going to start writing, because obviously Manu is very special," said Parker. "It was just an awesome night".

The story of the night was Tony Parker, who was playing in AT&T Center for the first time as an opponent. "Very, very special" - Parker on visiting with Duncan Sunday. I know he's happy for us.

White finished with 36.3 FanDuel points in the loss. "Kemba Walker was great". "Tony is a wonderful human being". We've got a lot of young guys in this team. Changing teams, you appreciate even more what we had here in San Antonio. When Parker scored his first points in the third quarter, the home crowd cheered. For Spurs faithful, it will likely be a rare opportunity to catch San Antonio's iconic Big Three in the same building. Gay is expected to return for the Spurs upcoming road trip. The veteran point guard has been a steady force off of the bench all season long, and I'm sure that the fans are grateful to have him here in Charlotte.

Still, the night partially belonged to Parker. Parker waved to Spurs fans with both hands as the game concluded after hugging Popovich.

He received a standing ovation after the video ended and once again when he was re-inserted into the game late in the fourth quarter to dribble out the clock.

"Just want to thank the fans". "The way they reacted tonight was just unbelievable. It was a great memory for me that I will cherish for the rest of my life".
