Boris Diaw is living his best life.

Not that that should surprise you.

The French big man was arguably the NBA’s most interesting personality during his 14 seasons in the league. And Diaw hasn’t disappointed since announcing his retirement (from the deck of his boat) from professional basketball last summer.

Diaw joined The Note podcast recently to talk about his retirement plans, his time with the Jazz and why he continues to make Utah his home base in the states.
