08:11 AM ET 03.26 | Boris Diaw has a chance to rewrite his unfortunate ending in North Carolina. [Diaw] had played only 24 minutes in two meaningless games with Charlotte over the last 2 1/2 weeks. For a competitor like Diaw, playing with the struggling Bobcats had gotten old very fast. So when he started weighing different playing options around the league, San Antonio was attractive for reasons other than his friendship with childhood friend Tony Parker. ... Diaw played 16 mintues against Dallas barely 24 hours after arriving in San Antonio Friday night. He played 11 more minutes in New Orleans Saturday before topping it with 27 minutes in the Spurs' 93-76 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.

Good luck getting a lot out of the overweight slug. A true competitor would give his all no matter what. A true competitor Diaw is not.

I hate to make excuses fot these overpaid cats but I think we can all agree that since no one knew how long the lockout would last a lot of players didn't get themselves in prime shape. This season's championship should be marked with an asterix unless my Knicks win it.

The season started 4 months ago ... "being out of shape because of the lockout" is no longer an excuse.

for a competitor ???

Would a legit competitor let himself go?

He's French. He thought playing big meant BIG!

He is doing well for the Spurs. He is a perfect fit and Pops knows how to use him.

Yes he is...

Never dismiss the Spurs when it comes to making decisions that should help them come playoff time (Jefferson not withstanding...)
