Known to wander into shootaround with a Starbucks cup in hand, Diaw does not deny he seldom sweats the small stuff. Or the big stuff. Or stuff. If they ever erect a statue of Diaw outside the AT&T Center, the pose will be an indifferent shrug. “It’s all relative in life,” said Diaw, who Thursday returns with the Spurs to Phoenix, where he spent parts of four seasons. “We’ve got a pretty lucky life. We can’t be hanging our head because we are having a bad day. There are people in the world that have way worse days than you do.”
He has shown amazing athleticism. Yet, his weight – listed at 250 pounds – is a common concern. And as he put it, “I’m at the same time very easy to coach and at the same time very hard to coach.” Diaw was difficult to coach in Charlotte, where then-Bobcats coach Paul Silas ripped his effort and commitment. He was also difficult to coach in Atlanta, where he told isolation-favoring coach Mike Woodson he couldn’t play for him.
