Diaw with France

Not sure if this is already being discussed anywhere, but Boris Diaw is currently playing with France in the European championships in Spain (aka "Eurobasket 2007").

So far, France is 3-1, having beaten Poland, Italy, and Germany so far (and lost to the surprise of the tournament so far, Slovenia). Today, France tips off against unbeaten Lithuania.

Anyway, even though this tournament seems quite a bit more competitive and interesting than the FIBA Americas tournament - and features almost as many NBA players - there is apparently zero TV coverage in the US.

From what I can tell, Diaw has been "okay". He's been starting alongside Parker, Turiaf and a couple of guys who play in Europe, and he's leading the team in rebounding (6.3 per game) but is only 5th in scoring (8 ppg). Parker has been the story for France, scoring 25 ppg, second only to Dirk's 28.3 ppg for Germany.

I'd like to see more scoring from Boris (anything which might give some hint of aggressiveness), but it's hard to know if it's just a result of the role he's been given on the French team.
