They also have center Ronny Turriaf who plays for the Clippers and Nicolas Batum of the Trail Blazers; plus they have 25-year-old guard Nando de Colo who will be joining the Spurs next year. France also won the silver medal at last years European championships.
"[Boris] Diaw is a very important guy for them because he's really their best passer,'' said Krzyzewski. ``He's that point forward that they run a lot of their offense through. Batum's shooting is outstanding, and then there's their athletic ability to run up and down the court -- we're not going to be able to out-athlete them like we have with some of our opponents.''
