Basketball player. Bon vivant. And now you can add author to the list of things that occupy Boris Diaw’s time.
The San Antonio Spurs forward has penned a children’s book, titled “Hoops to Hippos: True Stories of a Basketball Star on Safari.”
The tome combines Diaw’s love of travel and wildlife photography.
Guys. I will check with @NatGeo why "Hoops to hippos" seems to be already sold out. Thanks all for your support !
