Unbelievable Luol doesnt think surgery is necessary huh! how long has it been since he last played 18, 19 games something like that, anyaways maybe he thinks one day he'll wake up one morning and WAADDAA!!!! pain all gone... be for real dude. Tell you whats gonna happen he is going to milk this surgery thing untill the 09 season is about to start then and only then is when this light bulb will light up in his litlle head and realize that surgery was in deed necessary.... Remember agent 0 Mr Arenas yea! he pulled a fast one over there in DC.

Luol Deng is starting to remind me of Grant Hill minus the talent. Deng can be a good player, but not an All Star or Franchise type player. He has missed games every year he has been a Bull.

I think one more year in college would have made him a better player. His body was not NBA ready after one year in college & so these little injuries are wearing him down. Now that he bulked up after 4 years in, his game does not match his body size anymore, he is slower & stiffer & still cant put the ball on the floor.

If he plays for Britan this summer, the Bulls should do what ever they can to get rid of this guy. If a team commits 71 mil to you, you have an obligation to 100% effort, not sit out an entire season & then play in the summer. For any player even if they deserve it or not.

The only reason Deng's name stays in the paper is his contract. Anybody expecting any sort of positive contribution from this guy is too moronic to understand the last two seasons of Bulls basketball. Last year he wasn't injured and his effectiveness is about the same as this season.

Can't wait to get a sf back with no foot speed, passing skills, outside shot or ability to make a decent one on one move.
