Diaw: Exercise option; play in France?

Charlotte Bobcats forward Boris Diaw said he would definitely exercise his $9 million player-option for next season. He also said if the lockout draws well into next season, he intends to play for the French pro team he owns, JSA Bourdeaux

Boris OWNS a pro team? That would explain a lot about how he plays.

Boris is an enigma, wrapped in a hot dog bun, stuffed inside a Krispy Kreme donut.

Realist, I resent the fact that there's a Bobcat player almost as big as I was.

Then the fans wonder why the NBA is going into a lockout. To stop guys like Boris Diaw who make $9M a year and only give 50% effort.....

Give me a break! Boris practices all the time...scroll down on this webpage and see how he practices palming a basketball. Go Mr. Diaw!

Good,good now we can start Tyrus draft a great new six man, now all thats left is trade Capt Jack and our rebuild project will be well on its way

the only free agent I like is kwane brown center, but while were cleaning up cap need to see if anyone wants diop he really sucks but as a third option I guess he's okay, I also like to see if we can get Derrick Brown, dj ,hendo,t-time, Kwane brown

Okay if not Cunningham was'nt all that bad maybe resign him but then you would need to draft a good SF like Harrison Burns That going to be hard decison for the bobcats if they're able to draft at the six or seven spot thats even tougher if Kemba Walker still available, plus I feel like Kemba is special and if we can draft we must

Perfect Plan a Bobcats fans dream
We get lucky in lottery and have the number five spot in the draft We draft Kemba Walker and our next pic is 13 and we take good PF, We sign Greg Oben to a one year plan and Jamal Crawford and Keep Capt Jack unless someone gives us a offer we'll trade him on the spot

JSA Bordeaux is currently in french 3rd division, but are more likely to reach second division next year.
Boris played there in one of their youth team when he was a teenager.

"Exercise" is exactly what Boris needs. :p

Kemba Walker will hopefully be gone before the Bobcats pick...which would be good because he will end up a 3 point specialist, aka- Michael Adams. Not bad, but not a top 10 pick. He's just too short and not a true PG.

What is a "Greg Oben?" I know the name Greg Oden of the Blazers; he gets a pair of crutches with every contract.

No one is giving us jack for Jax; someon will take him off our hands if we give him away for Adam Morrison.

Same goes fo Boris...who cares anyways? We're not playing until October of 2012. Let's just screw up the draft again, take Jimmer Fredette and Bismack Biyambo...that should set the 'Cats back another 5 years or so.
