Pretty much everyone who has spent time living in the Alamo City is aware of Spurs legend, Tony Parker. Fewer people, however, are aware of his brief French rap career, and an even slimmer portion know him to be a pop culture nerd. I was oblivious to this final portion of his resume, but as it turns out, the former point guard is a comic book connoisseur. This summer, Parker’s private collection of pop culture memorabilia will be on view at the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA).
The four-time NBA champion has a vast arsenal of life-size statues of various figures (both good and evil) from the DC and Marvel cinematic universes. From June 10 to September 4, over 30 massive figures from Spider-Man to Captain America to Thanos will abandon their post in Parker’s private quarters and stand at attention in a SAMA gallery, according to the museum.
