Paul Silas rips Boris Diaw. Can you really blame him?

Boris Diaw

We passed along the report a couple days ago that Boris Diaw asked to be traded or bought out by the Charlotte Bobcats. He was done, he wanted to get out of town.

Sounds like the feeling is mutual.

Diaw sat with a the DNP-CD on the last two games and coach Paul Silas didn’t shy away from saying what he thought is wrong with Diaw in speaking with the Charlotte Observer.

“I think if he had played all out, the way he should have, it would have been a much, much better club,” Silas said, when asked why Diaw has fallen out of the rotation entirely….

“I like a player who is really committed to not only the team but to himself and then doing the best he can as a player,” Silas said. “Some of the things that would go on, like not shooting the ball (and) passing all of the time… I needed hoops and he could put the ball in the hoop. When that wouldn’t happen it was very disturbing.”

One way or another Diaw is on his way out of Charlotte. Diaw is averaging 7.7 points per game on 41 percent shooting this season. They might try to trade him, but they’ll get about a second round pick at this point. Which might not be a bad gamble — Diaw is talented and has put up good numbers in spurts, but he has regressed this season and motivation has been an issue wherever he has played.

    if being paid millions of dollars per year just to play a game for a couple hours a week still requires you to have additional motivation to play, then I question your overall worth to humanity. what a pathetic waste of life.

    At this point, pay him his money and deactivate him and tell him not to come to practice or games. I wouldn’t do him the favor of a buyout so he can find a playoff team to go to. He’s off the books at the end of the year anyway. Never seen anyone play like crap in their contract year.

    Boris Diaw played very well his first season in Phoenix. Since then he has become a French cream puff!
