Diaw didn’t have a veteran mentor during his rookie season on the Atlanta Hawks (2003-04). His closest friend on the team was fellow rookie Travis Hansen, who left to play in Europe the following year, which made him appreciate the importance of being a dependable go-to for Biyombo. Diaw took him out to eat on a daily basis. When the team was home, Diaw invited Biyombo to his house for meals. Other times, they ate at Mortimer’s – a restaurant Diaw owns in Charlotte. On the road, the veteran footed the bill when they dined out. Diaw wanted to provide a sense of family since Biyombo’s parents were able to visit just once a year.
“It’s going to take a little time and we’re going to have some ups and downs and we’re going to have some mistakes,” said the Spurs captain, “but he knows how to play the right way. He understands what we want as a basketball team.” Diaw is to make his preseason debut against the Pistons after missing the first three games following a busy summer schedule and, according to Popovich, “because he is French.”
