Along with a nice mid-range touch, Diaw also has a inside game.
Here's Diaw's stats from his last 5 games against DAL:
43 10-17 0-0 5-6 2 8 10 6 2 1 2 1 25
37 10-22 0-1 0-0 3 3 6 4 4 0 5 3 20
38 9-21 0-2 2-4 2 7 9 4 3 0 1 2 20
38 6-14 1-1 3-4 4 5 9 1 4 1 3 2 16
40 11-16 0-0 8-10 2 9 11 2 5 1 6 1 30
His season averages:
81 35.5 52.6 73.1 26.7 6.9 6.2 0.7 1.0 13.3
The Matrix's:
81 40.4 52.5 80.9 33.1 11.8 1.8 2.0 1.7 21.8

Dont you find it funny that Diaw did not play this well until playing in Phoenix and specifically with Nash. Marion was a productive player before Nash arrived. I would be careful in heaping on too much praise and considering getting rid of Marion for one solid year.
