More than 4,300 fans voted in the recent Suns.com poll asking whether Boris Diaw should keep his “new long hair and goatee look” or go back to the clean-cut style he sported during his first three seasons with the Suns.
The final margin between the two choices was far greater than the reported gap between Obama and McCain is currently, with 61% of fans telling 3D to keep the new look. Apparently, the margin was not large enough, however.Diaw arrived at US Airways Center for practice on Tuesday with an all-new ‘do, casting his own vote for an independent choice in the form of tight cornrows.
“I needed at least 80% to keep it,” the 6-8 forward/center said of his decision to ignore the fans’ urging to let the fro grow. “I didn’t want to keep it.”
