Relax, Popovich: Boris Diaw Is Just Enjoying A Glass Of Wine

| by Jonathan Wolfe

Boris Diaw wants everyone to know his weight won't be ballooning again anytime soon.

Diaw is spending the last few weeks of the NBA offseason relaxing in the French Pyrenees. What does that have to do with gaining weight you ask? I don’t know. I’ve never been there. I’d assume people relax and enjoy things like hiking, sightseeing, and skiing during their stays. Leave it to beloved grump and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to take a more cynical view, though.

Popovich told Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix last week he’s worried that Diaw is slurping down too many pina coladas on his vacation. Given how out of shape Diaw was as recently as two years ago, this is a legitimate concern.

Check out this tweet sent out by Mannix last week:

Diaw heard Popovich’s concern and countered with a perfect response. Diaw isn’t drinking Pina Coladas. He’s perfectly happy sipping on some fine French wine – after a workout, that is.

Diaw posted the following picture to his Instagram over the weekend, with a caption saying “No worries pop only one glass of wine and daily workouts.”

The Spurs kick their season off on October 28, with a home court showdown against the Dallas Mavericks.
