August 27, 2013 Updates

How good do you think Kawhi Leonard can be? Boris Diaw: He's great. I think he's going to be an All-Star one day. He's got it all, he can do everything on the court: plays defense, gets rebounds and he can score. Everything. HoopsHype

How was the feeling following the Finals after losing against the Heat? Boris Diaw: It was tough, it's never easy to lose. It was a tough time, you think about it... You try to take it off your mind. But there's nothing you can change about it. Sometimes I still think about it, I'm still very disappointed that we lost. The only thing you can do is come back next year and try to do it again. Was there one moment at the end of Game 6, before Ray Allen hit the three, that you thought 'We are champions'? Boris Diaw: Not champions but when we were +5 of course we were like, 'OK, that's pretty good so far'. We were pretty close but we weren't champions yet. HoopsHype

Diaw originally paid $3.6 million in the summer of 2008 for the 1.61-acre luxury property.

Roughly seven month later, Diaw and his massive contract were dealt to the Charlotte Bobcats in a five-player trade. Realtor
