Apparently he enjoys his wine, too.
On Wednesday, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said that he misses the crafty forward, who spent the previous five-and-a-half seasons in San Antonio, as a drinking buddy.
"It made our dinners a lot less fun," Pop said when asked about the trade that sent Diaw to Utah, per Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune. "He was one of the only guys who would drink with me. I try to corrupt all my players with wine. He was easy. He was an easy target."
Pop went on to praise Diaw, a pass-first power forward, as unselfish. He's averaging 4.6 points and 2.3 assists for the No. 4-seeded Jazz, who will take on the Los Angeles Clippers in the opening round of the Western Conference playoffs.
