Boris Diaw on Traversing the Globe, Why the Suns Fell Apart, Guarding LeBron James, and Much More

Logan and Raja also talk to Boris about his time with the Spurs, including playing with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Kawhi Leonard and getting his ring in 2014


The man, the myth, the legend Boris Diaw joins Logan and Raja on a veritable odyssey through his interests and career, starting with his travels around the world on his catamaran and close calls with wildlife on safaris (0:27). Then they talk about the rise and fall of the Steve Nash–era Phoenix Suns (20:14), how and why Boris was traded with Raja to the Charlotte Bobcats (37:50), and his unceremonious buyout in Charlotte, which led to a championship-winning stint in San Antonio (55:30). Finally, they get into his time with the Spurs: playing with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Kawhi Leonard (1:00:07), guarding LeBron James in the NBA Finals (1:11:41), and getting his ring in 2014 (1:15:52).
