Those of us who tortured ourselves and sat through the Bulls game last night were not only treated to a very ugly win, but also something that we haven’t seen since 2004. Luol Deng posted the first 20 board… 20 point game in 5 years… 5 years, you’re kidding right?!?!!?
Perhaps you remember the great Marcus Fizer, or if you’re like me you remember what a real disaster that Cyclone turned out to be… well he was the last to post a 20/20 game back in 2004.
Luol Deng was given the richest contract in the history of the Bulls when he signed a 6 year deal worth $71 million in guaranteed money. A franchise that was home to 2 of the top 15 greatest players in history, are giving Deng, with a career 15.4 ppg all that loot??? The Bulls wonder why they haven’t had an All-Star since 1998… I know why, your paying the wrong people. Hopefully Deng proves me wrong and he breaks that curse this year, but my money is on that not happening.
