I hesitated about listening to this because it uses the word "Unauthorized." I associate that word, plus the name of an A-list celebrity, with Harvey Levin/TMZ sleaze mongering.
Belmont and Belcourt's "Tony Parker: An Unauthorized Biography" (2014) was a pleasant surprise. It's a lively, easy listen and must have been written by someone who loves sports as much as he or she loves writing. Parker's marriage to Eva Langoria - and his later infidelity and divorce - are mentioned, but not with as much excitement and detail as some of Parker's greater NBA games and plays. If I'd listened to this with one of my kids, I wouldn't have had difficult things to explain.
It was a little bit of a hagiography, but I'd sure rather listen to that than the snarky cruelty of a TMZ piece.
Roy Lunel's a sports announcer, so he was a good choice as narrator.
