The SunsGossip crew was at the Warriors-Suns game last night for the Suns' first road win of the season. (And it was a 113-110 nail-biter
!) After the game we noticed our boy Boris Diaw doing a TV interview on the court. The SunsGossip crew ran down towards the floor but three security guards swooped in to restrain us because we didn't have floor passes.
We retreated. We took a twenty-second timeout to reset. And then we ran a sick play on those fools. LaTowna
darted to the right and drew Guard #1 deep into the fifth row. Oakland Gurl
started kicking game to Guard #2 to divert his attention. And then Sir J.O. set a screen and Miss SunsGossip blew past Guard #3 and ran to the court. Guard #4 materialized out of nowhere and launched a surprise "LET'S GO" attack, but Miss SunsGossip was unstoppable.
The resulting conversation with Bobo was memorialized in audio form. Boris' end of the discussion is hard to hear because old girl Guard #4 started pulling us back and Boris' handlers were tugging him away towards the locker room. But Mr. Diaw was gracious enough to deliver a super-smooth answer to our somewhat out-of-pocket question. The topic was Jack McCallum's new book "Seven Seconds or Less" in which Boris is quoted as saying "I do not date American women. I have
them." Jason at lowpost
and Henry at TrueHoop
first broke the story -- and our heart.
Boris' response? Well, you can take it with a grain of pastry salt, but the fact that he even responded to our maniacal screaming gets him clear out of the doghouse. We still got love for you, Boris! We'll see you March 29th when the Suns come back to Golden State, but we'll be sure to cop a scalped media pass so we can have a civilized conversation.

hacked in and performed some sabotage on the upload. You might need to follow along with the transcript. ]powered by ODEO
