Social Sidelines: Boris Diaw says goodbye
The Most Interesting Man in basketball has called it a career. Boris Diaw — in perfectly Boris Diaw fashion, surrounded by friends on the deck of a boat in the middle of the ocean — announced to the world this week that he has decided to officially retire from the game of basketball.
With the Jazz, Diaw was able to team up with his friend and countryman Rudy Gobert.
Diaw, the fun-loving Frenchman, was a joy to watch on the court and always enjoyed himself off of it.
From an inspiration, to a teammate, to a brother. Thank you @theborisdiaw for everything you did for me on and off the court. Enjoy what’s after, annnnnd if you ever need someone to drive the boat i’m here . pic.twitter.com/0rd8hw75CW— Rudy Gobert (@rudygobert27) September 6, 2018
Perhaps the best quote about Diaw there is. https://t.co/inufsg6aRh— Jeff Siegel (@jgsiegel) September 6, 2018
Boris Diaw announced his retirement, appropriately, from a gorgeous boat—and tagged the basketball HOF as his location. Absolute legend. pic.twitter.com/KFS4bBpaUY— Sarah (@WildHorses65) September 6, 2018
Whatever Diaw does next, we know it will be interesting.
I'm glad Boris Diaw retired from basketball so finally he can relax.— Jeff McDonald (@JMcDonald_SAEN) September 7, 2018
