Boris Diaw has been dubbed as many things in his career for his play, with his recent play lately against the likes of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Love, you can add defensive stopper to that list......wait a minute, what?
Diaw will not turn heads for his speed or lack thereof but with what he can do as a big man on the floor for the San Antonio Spurs. You don't see many big men that know what their role is on the floor. Diaw in fact, does just that. He does not go out and do anything out of the ordinary. He puts a stamp on any game, he does things in games that do not show up in the boxscore. this is what makes him a consummate player.
What Diaw has been doing is putting his body on defenders, and it has caused those to be uncomfortable. Against Dirk Nowitzki and recently Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Diaw has done about as good of a job that you could ask against two of the leagues premier power forwards.no comments
