In a video posted Monday by ESPN, Parker announced that he was hanging it up after 18 years in the league.

Four-time National Basketball Association champion Tony Parker has announced his retirement from the National Basketball Association after an illustrious career that spanned 18 seasons. Hornets General Manager Mitch Kupchak and Head Coach James Borrego had this to say about Parker following a career that included four NBA titles, a 2007 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award and six All-Star appearances.

"It's with a lot of emotion that I retire from basketball, it was an incredible journey!"

"At the end of the day, " Parker said, "If I can't be Tony Parker anymore and I can't play for a championship, I don't want to play basketball anymore".

"I want to congratulate Tony on a truly remarkable career".

"If I don't play for a championship, I feel like, why are we playing?".

He had previously said that he would like to play for 20 seasons, but he'll fall just shy of that mark. The former No. 5 overall pick was a three-time NBA champion, 2006 NBA Finals MVP, 13-time NBA All-Star and two-time All-NBA First Team member. "I had a great time in Charlotte".

"That is 17 years together and all the wins, and being the best in terms of playoff history wins and best trio, all the records". I have a lot of great stuff in my life.

"I'm at peace with it", Parker said.

"It's been a long time that I've been at peace with that decision because I've prepared myself for that, too, with all the stuff that I'm doing, the two teams I own in France and my global school opening in September", Parker said.

"Winning", Parker said. "Winning".

The next chapter for Parker includes spending time in France as the owner and president of ASVEL - a French men's and women's basketball club.

He added he now will be able to focus more on his men and women's teams in France, along with the opening of an global academy he founded. And so I'm already having talks with different people, and they're looking at what I'm doing in France. The game of basketball is for young guys. I had a great time in Charlotte.
