Five Epic Comebacks That You Probably Forgot About

Being a celebrity isn’t easy, the lifestyles of the rich and the famous often come with many luxuries. The fame comes with a price, constantly being watched under the microscope of the mass media. So when these people screw up, the whole world is watching. One thing we seem to forget is that they’re human. And everyone loves a comeback. The key ingredient to forgiveness? Winning of course, here’s five of the almost forgotten screw ups from our favorite ballers.

1. Tony Parker

Eva Longoria kisses former husband Tony Parker after a San Antonio Spurs victory.

The French point guard is three rings deep and on his way to possibly capturing a fourth title in the NBA Finals this year for the San Antonio Spurs. His highly publicized marriage to actress Eva Longoria was the talk of Hollywood for quite some time, until the couple split after three years together. What’s even more inciting is the allegations on why they divorced, Longoria allegedly found multiple sext messages on his phone from ladies upon ladies upon ladies. No big deal, that comes with the territory of being an NBA baller, right? But wait, Longoria allegedly found sexts between Parker and the wife of former Spurs team mate Brent Barry. Huh?

Longoria filed for divorce immediately, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Infidelity was also the topic of tabloids. We’re not knocking on Parker, but cheating on the star of Desperate Housewives? C’mon Tony. She also topped Maxim magazine’s Hot 100 for consecutive years in 06-07, and it’s safe to say was the focal point of wet dreams world-wide.

How did the Spurs point comeback from said heartbreak with Eva? He kept playing, and garnered 2nd Team All-NBA honors in 2012, while always being in the conversation for league MVP over the past few years. However, Parker’s circus shot last night over the MVP LeBron James could prove to be a defining moment if San Antonio captures their fifth NBA Championship over the Miami Heat. If Tony Parker continues to make awe-inspiring shots like this, you can be sure the divorce will be long forgotten. Cheating on a Desperate Housewife? Forgiven!
