NBA hoopster Tony Parker is suing the SoHo club where Drake and Chris Brown famously brawled last week, saying he sustained injuries that have sidelined his career.

According to the NY Post, 30-year-old Parker – aka Eva Longoria’s ex – wants club W.i.P to pay him a whopping $20 million for his troubles, which he says include lacerations to his cornea, allegedly caused by shards of glass that flew when bottles did.

The basis of Parker’s suit: W.i.P. never should have let Brown and Drake into the club in the first place.

“You’re throwing gasoline on the flames,” Parker’s lawyer, David Jaroslawicz, told the Post of the club giving both Drake and Brown bottle service for the night.

Jaroslawicz even pointed a finger at pop star Rihanna, who has dated both Drake, 25, and Brown, 23, and was allegedly the root of the ruckus.

“She’s been known, like Helen of Troy, to cause trouble,” Jaroslawicz said.

Parker, meanwhile, says he’ll be out of commission for a week as his eye heals with the help of a “therapeutic” contact lens.  He’s scheduled to play with the French team at the Summer Olympics, but said, “I’ll be missing the start … because I can’t do anything for a week except keep the lens in and then take drops.”

Jaroslawicz added that while the extent of Parker’s injuries are not yet known, they “certainly don’t improve your outside shot.”

    As he is a pro basket player, your work comes first. STAY HOME, Parker! Don't go to clubs where other problematic celebs are partying. You will stay safe.

    Are you serious? omg I hope this case gets thrown out! How lame of him to sue, and for that reason. I could see if the suit was because they didnt have sufficient security. But to say the nightclub shouldnt have let them in? Based on WHAT?? I mean unless they have nothing better to do then to always know what celebs have problems with each other, why would they know this?

    until i hear from a physician stated he had a injury that will change the quality of his life i wont believe this if anything he would sue the celebs involved NOT the club they didnt have anything to do with that, there were numerous people injured badly but not one has tried to sue for 20 million...i think tony parker is just trying to cash in like some of the real victims here.....

    This makes me laugh! Tony Parker, a public nightclub cannot deny someone entrance because they are feuding with someone else in the club. And why is Jaroslawicz pointing a finger at Rihanna? She wasn't even there!
