Slam's Diogu Diary

New, comments

Fan favorite Ike Diogu held down the rookie diary for Slam Magazine this past NBA season. The diaries are archived and online for your reading pleasure.

Ike in Diary 97:

I started the season coming off the bench, then I moved into the starting lineup, and now I'm coming off the bench again. Doesn't really matter to me--I just want to do whatever is best for the team. You know, whenever they call my number I'm ready. And to be honest, I didn't really expect to start at all coming into this year--it never crossed my mind--so when it happened it was a good feeling.

Ike definitely deserves more playing time. With more experience his rebounding and defense should improve.

How does this lineup sound?
PG: Baron Davis
SG: Jason Richardson
SF: Draft pick or Mickael Pietrus or even better Corey Maggette (who might be available for a Mike Dunleavy Jr. package)
PF: Ike Diogu
C: Troy Murphy
