We call it a baby, because we find it so disturbing.
Doesn’t having these kinds of images always get in your way of how you’re approaching everyday life?
Oh, yes. There’s something really disturbing about a baby, isn’t there? You never know what that image will get you. If you’re a very open person and you go out and eat with your partner and you have a baby and you have a little baby in your arms, it’s something really personal. It’s like, you realize that it’s your own baby you have. And it’s an experience that will haunt you.

So, it was surprising to all of us when he did.
Duncan told reporters Tuesday that he’s not interested in playing with Diaw.
The Mavericks have only been to a playoff game together in four of the last six seasons. They’ve been 3-9 and 4-16 respectively that span.
But, let’s back up.
Diaw is a very talented player. He is a career 45.4% 3 point shooter who is a threat to dunk over even the best big man in the league. Yet, the Mavericks have lost him to the Houston Rockets last summer after three seasons with Dallas.
Diaw was a very good player for the Mavericks over the last few years but he has not had the impact he once did in Dallas.
