Rick Bonnell: Boris Diaw retired from basketball today. Nazr Mohammed told my favorite Boris-in-Charlotte story, related to his being a confirmed bachelor who enjoyed his lack of roots. Nazr was describing why NBA players get so stressed by the trade deadline: Uprooting kids from schools and families moving out of dream houses. Then he mentioned that didn’t apply to Boris, because his roots in Charlotte were a Segway and a suitcase.

It would seem like a philosophical about-face, after trading another oft-injured star in Blake Griffin, to trade young pieces for Butler. Only a bargain makes sense.
