Let's check in on how the French players fared from the free-throw line in Game 3 of the conference semi-finals.
Tony Parker: 2-for-4.
Boris Diaw: 2-for-4.
Mickaël Piétrus: 8-for-9
Clearly, Pietrus has overcome the anxieties that are still plaguing his amis. Is it his distance from the Longoria-Parker nuptials? Is it that he grew up in the Caribbean, not in France? I'm still going to go with wine and hugs.
