In this photo taken Jan. 12, 2011, Charlotte Bobcats' Boris Diaw (32) shoots as Chicago Bulls' Carlos Boozer (5) and Derrick Rose (1) defend in the second half of the Bobcats' 96-91 win in an NBA basketball game in Charlotte, N.C. The Bobcats nearly traded Diaw twice in the offseason, yet he insists it doesn't bother him. Teammate Gerald Wallace says it's sometimes maddening how he never gets upset at anything. Despite his quirks, the power forward is a key reason Charlotte is surging under new coach Paul Silas. (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)
