Photography: Boris Diaw's first love

This is the tale of a basketball player, Boris Diaw, and his first love: photography. Diaw -- formerly of the Charlotte Bobcats, currently with the San Antonio Spurs --discovered his talents for snapping shots on a 2003 trip to Senegal, when he was visiting his father. He bought a beginner camera and took pictures of family, friends and the country. His face still lights up when he tells of a trip a year later on his first African safari where his interest in photography blossomed. "I love animals and being able to take back the memories of being in the wild and seeing all this wildlife happening, not being in a zoo," he said....

A longtime admirer of National Geographic photographer Steve Winter's work, Diaw reached out to the man with an interest in shadowing him for an upcoming story. With a connection through the NBA, Winter last year invited Diaw for a week-long internship to India's Bandhavgarh National Park, a tiger reserve and wildlife sanctuary. "He told me right away: 'You should come. I'm leaving on Tuesday.' It was like Friday, something like that," Diaw recalled. "He's like, 'I'm leaving on Tuesday, going to India to finish a story on Indian tigers."

Diaw has some talent off the court as well as on. There were some beautiful pictures in that article.
-Editor's note: Not the one of Steve Nash, obviously.
