NBA journeyman Boris Diaw wants to eventually take a trip to our nearest neighboring planet, Mars, and outer space in general.

In his interview with Alex Wong for GQ, the Utah Jazz power forward talked about his literally out of this world idea. Here are some of the more interesting parts of the one-on-one:

AW: You must be excited that going into space and maybe even living on Mars seems like a realistic possibility in your lifetime at this point.

Diaw: For sure. I’m not kidding when I say it. I want to go to space. I would try to do it if it’s possible and I think it will be in my lifetime. Mars, I don’t know if that’s going to be possible. They’re probably going to send some professional astronauts there first. I heard it might be a one way mission.

AW: If it is, would you consider living on Mars?

Diaw: Definitely. I would do the one way trip. 100 percent. If they were looking for candidates, I would definitely apply for it. Just even going to space for a few days and then coming back down would be cool. I think that’s something that’s already possible for civilians, it’s just very, very expensive but maybe the price might go down.

AW: So there’s intelligent life out there, you think?

Diaw: There’s life. Now, is it just living cells? Or maybe just fish? There’s not just life on one planet, there’s life on a lot of different places. It might just be a couple worms living on one planet, and then another planet there might be a civilization that’s already ahead of us. There’s definitely something out there.

Boris was drafted with the 21st pick in the 2003 draft by the Atlanta Hawks. He played with the Hawks for two seasons, and was traded to the Phoenix Suns for, ironically, current teammate Joe Johnson. During that season, he won the Most Improved Player award, averaging 13.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and a block per game.

In 2008, he was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats for Jared Dudley and Jason Richardson, along with Raja Bell and Sean Singletary. After playing four seasons with the Bobcats, he was waived by the team. The San Antonio Spurs picked him up afterwards, and he won his first and only NBA championship in Silver and Black. This past offseason, he was traded to the Utah Jazz, in order for the Spurs to sign All-Star Pau Gasol.
