ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Spurs forward Boris Diaw is well known for his wide range of interests, from karaoke to wildlife photography, as well as his irrepressible continental flair, so this latest tale probably shouldn’t be that much of a surprise. Still, it provides a pretty awesome mental visual: According to reports out of San Antonio, Boris Diaw has installed a cappuccino machine in his locker.
Jeff McDonald from the San Antonio Express News tells the tale…
Fast forward to Saturday, when Spurs players arrived at the AT&T Center before a game against Utah to find Diaw had done arguably the most Diaw thing ever.
He had installed a working espresso machine in his locker, completing the set with three tiny cups with saucers. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Since no still photography is allowed in the locker room, you’ll have to take our word for it).
Asked if Diaw’s new addition to his locker set-up represents the peak example of Boris being Boris, teammate Manu Ginobili laughed.
“With Boris, it is hard to tell,” Ginobili said. “There are so many.”
At least the latest caffeinated developments have perhaps another new nickname for Diaw, courtesy of a few clever heads on Twitter: The Borista.
