Have you ever been caught in the middle of a fight, been injured and then demanded $20 million for your injury? Me neither, and that's because I'm not Tony Parker, the San Antonio Spurs guard who was injured in the infamous fight between Chris Brown and Drake at the WiP club in New York City's SoHo neighborhood.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Parker is suing the club for $20 million because he got a scratched cornea (which seems like it would be really bad for a basketball player). In the suit filed in State Supreme Court, Parker alleges that "The WiP club and its operators were negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to take place."

So should Tony Parker be paid $20 million for a scratched cornea, given that he's a basketball player and he might really need that cornea in his career? Or is this just crazy? Let us know in the comments!
