NBA Tour in Paris
You know that they often use the front of the Hotel de Ville (town hall) for various exhibits (garden, heart race, French tennis open...). Well this weekend was dedicated to basket ball... And more precisely the Adidas NBA tour. Basket ball is more and more popular in France (the French basketball federation has 456,056 members) probably because Tony Parker (the husband of Eva Longoria) is French (even though he was born in Belgium and has an American father and a Dutch mother!) and has been in the news a lot over the last 5 years. I took this shot during their impressive rehearsals and I was not lying on the floor(!) but on a step of a staircase that leads to an underground parking!
