SAN ANTONIO (AP) Spurs star Tony Parker had a walk on the wild side this week and has named three African lion cubs at the San Antonio Zoo after his wife, their son and himself.

Zoo officials said Tuesday that Parker had decided on Axelle, Josh and T.P. after earlier making the top bid for the naming rights.

The NBA player Tuesday morning slipped into the lions' den, accompanied by two zookeepers, and helped the cubs play with some toys.

Zoo authorities didn't immediately say how much Parker bid to name the two males and one female born July 25.
