Ding Dong, Les Bleus are Dead

...and just like that, the French national team loses any hope they had of winning the worlds.

Tony Parker caught his finger on an opponent's jersey and is headed to San Antonio to recover. Boris Diaw will likely run the point now, but the loss of Parker will seriously hurt France's offense. In a rather serious group, which includes Argentina, Serbia, Venezuela, Nigeria, and Lebanon, Les Bleus may find themselves near the bottom of the group. (I'd still pick them third, though. But now, there's no chance they beat Spain or Germany in the round of 16.)

Two Spurs down, one to go.
