After spending the first 17 seasons with the San Antonio Spurs, Tony Parker played his first contest against his former team on Monday.

His Charlotte Hornets came away with a 108-93 victory behind a 33-point outing from Kemba Walker. Parker finished with eight points, four assists and three rebounds in his first game against the Spurs, but there was much more to be highlighted.

Parker was a four-time NBA champion, a Finals MVP and a six-time All-Star as a member of the Spurs - check out what type of welcome back he received.

Pre-game interview

Family surprise

Parker had family fly all the way from France for his return to San Antonio.

Reuniting with former teammates

Parker and Pau Gasol played two seasons as teammates in San Antonio.

Parker and David Robinson also played two seasons as teammates with the Spurs, winning the NBA Championship together in Parker's second season in the league.

Long-time International teammate and five-year Spurs' teammate Boris Diaw was in the building.

And, of course, Parker had to show love to his backup point guard of seven years, Patty Mills.

Tribute video

As you would expect, it was nothing but loud cheers for this.

In-game highlights

This was Parker's first time checking in, but it wasn't the last standing ovation he received.

His first bucket back on the floor he knows so well.

And obviously he was dishing out clutch assists, too.

With the game all but over, Parker's teammates forced him to check back into the game to receive one last standing ovation.

Post-game highlights

He had a moment with his former head coach.

Then stopped by for a post game interview to speak on the huge road win for his team.

Then it was his meeting with his current head coach to celebrate the win!

The Hornets currently hold the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 20-23 record following Monday's victory.
