ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Part of what makes Boris Diaw such an important part of the San Antonio Spurs is his versatility, which apparently extends to his off-court interests as well. Turns out, Diaw isn’t just a basketball player, he’s also a wildlife photographer, which has led to him to now also becoming an author.
This week Diaw released his first book, Hoops to Hippos!, a National Geographic book aimed at kids and featuring Diaw’s wildlife photography. According to National Geographic, the book “takes young readers on safari as [Diaw] explores his off-court passion: wildlife photography! Join Diaw as he escapes from stampeding wildebeests, comes face-to-face with lions, and discovers why you should never come between a hippo and its watery home. Through engaging stories and photos by Diaw, readers will discover a whole new side to this basketball champ.”
Here’s a video with Diaw explaining the book…
