Tony Parker orders French cakes for his wedding to Eva Longoria

Tony Parker prefers only French-made wedding cakes.

The NBA champion, set to marry "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria next week, is staying coy about plans for the star-studded event.

Speaking to reporters Thursday in Paris, the San Antonio Spurs point guard shrugged off questions about the wedding party and venue, believed to be July 7 at a French chateau.

"I don't care where I'm going to get married," he said. "It's a girls' thing." To other queries, he replied, "That's a question you should ask Eva."

He dismissed one of the rumors flying about the extravagant ceremony: that the wedding cake was to be flown in from the United States.

"Why take a cake from the United States ... if it is France that makes the best cakes?" he asked.

"You can't control all the stupid things that they can say, like bringing a cake in first class."

While Longoria was picking the wedding site - believed to be the luxurious chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte - Parker said he was taking charge of the food and music for the wedding. And that was all he would say.

Parker, voted the NBA's most valuable player earlier this month after the Spurs won their fourth straight title, wanted to talk about basketball.

"I think that this is just the beginning," he said. "I still have a long way to go because my idol is Michael Jordan and he won six titles so I'm only half way there."

Looking long-term, Parker said he would base his decisions on fellow players Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili and coach Gregg Popovic. Parker is signed with the Spurs through 2009.

"My decisions about the future and where I am going to play and if I'm going to stay in San Antonio will depend on how long Duncan wants to play, Ginobili, and Popovic."
