Default Am I the only one whose eyes have been opened on Boris Diaw

I never really took notice of Diaw before, but he is a great passing big man and he is one of the reasons that the Spurs have been flowing so well.

Just looked his stats and his offensive rating in the playoffs is 129 and his defensive rating is 99.

Wow.

Knicks fans know what he is still capable of. He torched the Bockers when the Lolcats beat them with Da'phoney coaching them.

I remember liking those Phoenix teams, but I have hardly ever seen the Bobcats play.

His breakout year on the Suns was great for a few of my fantasy leagues. 13 PPG, 6 APG, 6 RPG, 1 BPG was nice off the ww. he could play almost every position on the court, very versatile... Needless to say, I'm glad he's on the Spurs. Albeit an older, slower version, but still very talented with experience.

I always knew that about Diaw. Diaw was just one of those he's good when motivated players. It looks like he is motivated now that he is on a contending team like the Spurs instead of on the team with the worst record in the league in the Charlotte Bobcats.

His biggest flaw was always his lack of trust in his own scoring ability. I remember hearing D'antoni had to threaten to pull him from the game if he passed on wide open shots.

He seems less hesitant now, but I did still catch a play or two when he should have just taken the open shot instead of trying for a "better" shot which disrupted the offense.

He's a poor mans Pau Gasol offensively. He actually played PG for the Hawks for a little while before he went to PHX he is a very talented passer and when you play on a team like the spurs they can utilize that... a team like the bobcats there is nothing to utilize.

Lebron would average 20/5/5 on the Cats.

He was very good in Phoenix alongside Barbosa. High IQ PF with very good handles and passing ability.

Lebron in cavs uniform wasnot that different.You had only lebron and other guys who defends and shoots.Lebron would probably average what he averaged when he was in cavs uniform.
