Miss SunsGossip talks to Boris Diaw about "the quote"

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.

[We have a clearer copy of the audio, but Atma Brother #1 from Golden State of Mind hacked in and performed some sabotage on the upload. You might need to follow along with the transcript. ]

Miss SunsGossip: Boris!

Guard #4: Keep it moving, let's go!

Miss SG: Boris! Boris! BORIS!!!

Guard #4: [physically restraining Miss SG] LET'S GO!

Miss SG: Boris -- let me holla at you! Ay, why did you say -- in the book -- why did you say you don't date American women, you only have them? What was that about?

Boris Diaw: I didn't say that!

Miss SG: That's what it said in that Jack McCallum book.

Boris: Ah no, he's lying.

Miss SG: He's lying? Ok, that's good to know.

Boris: No, no, no. I meant "date" like not "dating." Like friends who only date and not somebody else.

Miss SG: [unconvinced/confused] Okaaay... Thank you!

Boris: [smiling and waving] You're welcome.

Miss SG: [heart melting]

Nice embedded journalism SG! The Odeo player shows an error. Of course Boris came correct, Nash was yelling at him.

Dammmmmn, Latowna! Thought you were our homegirl!

FIRST OF ALL, Monta is not *your* boy, we scouted him first.

SECONDLY, yes it was an ill dunk, but we TALKED TO BORIS DIAW. Little bit more newsworthy.

that audio player doesn't work (and odeo doesn't like foreigners using their site either!) but it's cool to "hear" boris isn't a dick... pun intended.

Yeah, Boris' explanation doesn't make much sense. This may require a Part II to uncover the real truth.

I would honestly not take that statement to heart. Language confusion was probably a big factor. But, I like you, MissSunsGossip got the oppurtunity to meet him. He's genuinly a nice guy.

I agree, I think a Robinson stuffing Yao pic would be awesome.
