AT&T CENTER--Seated in front of his locker, quickly changing clothes before the horde of cameras make their way two seats over and invade his space for Manu Ginobili's customary post game media scrum, Boris Diaw hastily throws on a custom t-shirt with a cartoon likeness of himself. His physique, while far removed from the Charlotte Bobcat post-lockout days that spurred a thousand overweight jokes, still remains far from the sculpted pinnacle of physical perfection we associate with world class athletes.
Conversing with Diaw is Matt Bonner, a pale, red-headed big man who looks and dresses like what you what expect from a basketball player from the basketball hotbed of New Hampshire. Alongside Manu Ginobili, Marco Belinelli, and Patty Mills, the San Antonio Spurs second unit is perhaps the least physically imposing lineup in the NBA today. And perhaps its most entertaining.no comments
