When news came out a few weeks ago that Boris Diaw(notes) rode a Segway to Charlotte Bobcats games, I thought it may have been a bit of an act. Just Diaw having fun playing himself off as the eccentric character that he is, utilizing the most effete form of transportation possible (for a 6-8 guy, at least, because a Smart Car ain't happening) while talking to the Charlotte Observer's pop culture writer.
Around 4:15pm this afternoon, I bumped into Boris Diaw, "walking" his dogs in Freedom Park.
And here is what Arnott photographed:
That's our buddy, Boris Diaw, trucking around in a Segway. The guy is for real. At 12 mph.
