Mercury's Rising in Boris Diaw's Eyes

[en fran├žais]

It's old news that Boris Diaw took in several Phoenix Mercury games earlier in the season. At first blush this Suns-sighting doesn't seem gossipworthy...but when a basketball game makes a brotha blush, it makes SunsGossip take notice.

This picture from the June 7th Mercury game against the Monarchs captures the starry-eyed swingman staring at the object of his affection. Brother Martin Diaw seems to be watching the game-action on the court. But the Suns-hot burning question is, who or what is Boris looking at?

SunsGossip spent a month of Sundays researching this one and unfortunately was unable to come up with a conclusive answer.

Some speculate that he's gazing at Mercury hottie Ann Strother. Given their confirmed post-game rendez-vous at Majerle's, this is a plausible interpretation.

But SunsGossip also talked to several Mercury game-goers who all claimed to have seen Boris staring longingly at a spectator across the court who was eating a slice of pizza. Now, we all know how much Boris loves pizza! Could the amour in his eye be for a pizza pie?

Thanks to our friends at the US Airways Center, SunsGossip was able to obtain surveillance footage from the June 7th game. A close-up still picture of the spectators in Boris' direct line of vision reveals a Mercury fan who is indeed enjoying a slice of pizza. Case closed?

Not quite. SunsGossip also spent several long hours speaking with Scorch, the Mercury mascot. Amid Tourette's-like cheering outbursts and incessant heat-related double-entendres, Scorch slipped up and revealed a certain tidbit of information... SunsGossip is toiling away to corroborate this tidbit and will surely share it as soon as it is confirmed. This story is getting hotter than a tin roof in... uh... Phoenix.

SunsGossip has also noticed Boris rocking the Sean John more than the Rocawear. We wondered if there was some significance to his sporting the RW on this particular evening but concluded it might just have been laundry day. But if you hear anything, do let us know!
