According to a report from The Undefeated, long-time San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker announced his retirement after 18 seasons in the NBA.

Parker's retirement marks the end of the Spurs' "Big 3" era with Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili retiring before him.

Parker played 17 seasons with the Spurs and helped the team win four of five NBA titles. He was named the 2007 NBA Finals MVP and went on to become a multiple All-Star in San Antonio.

"I'm at peace with it," Parker said. "It's been a long time that I've been in 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 international school opening in September. I have so much stuff going on that I've always been at peace with that decision.

Parker has made it clear he intends to make San Antonio home so fans can still see him from time to time.

And he will be a lock for the Basketball Hall of Fame once he is eligible.

Here is Parker himself talking more on why he decided to leave the NBA and more.
