Gorgui Dieng: Projected mid-first round center from Louisville

3

Great article. Includes a lesson that DMC should learn: "Toughness is not fighting on the court or shoving people," Dieng said. "Toughness is helping your team win. Toughness is when my teammates are down, helping them up. If I see Chane (Behanan) didn't have a good game, I talk to him and try to bring him back into the game. I don't think toughness is fighting on the court, talking trash, nothing like that. I think you are tough when you can help your team win and stop your opponent. Taking charges is toughness, blocking shots, rebounding the ball, stuff like that. Talking trash has nothing to do with toughness. When I am playing against someone and he is on the floor, I can help him up. He is not going to change the score. It is a thing people need to understand. People have the wrong idea of being tough."
