With Luol Deng the subject of trade rumors once again this summer, we may have seen the last of the 9-year veteran and 2-time all-star in a Bulls uniform. Hopefully not, as I'd love to see him lockin' up the perimeter with the breakout Jimmy Butler and a healthy D. Rose. But the NBA is an unpredictable business sometime (see: Thursday night) so you never know when a beloved player on your squad may be relocating.
I feel like it's a good time to appreciate what Luol Deng has done for not only the Bulls, but also through his many humanitarian efforts that take the spotlight in this recent Life + Times documentary on Deng. Across the 20 minutes, a more revealing than usual Luol shares stories from his trips home to his native Sudan and various projects he's worked on over the years. (We attended one of those back in 2011, Luol Deng Foundation's "Game And Give", the video of which I brought back below.)
But that's not all: for any fellow NBA nerd, you'll also appreciate a lot of the anecdotes and reflections from Deng's time with the Bulls, his various roles, and how he ended up choosing Duke over Indiana for his one year of college (great Coach K story). Plus, how Manute Bol introduced basketball to his family and some candid clips of Luol playing FIFA with his buddies, rapper ANTHM and Adam Andre. A great video to sit-down with above — shouts to Luol, can't wait for next season!
