Deng > Boozer

Re: Deng > Boozer
Always knew that we haven't seen the best of Luol Deng. He's a really coachable guy and Thibs should be given some credit for his improvement.

Re: Deng > Boozer
That's a good point. It's no coincidence that we've seen this improvement only when Thibs took over.

It's not so cut and dry. There are matchups where Booz will shine, and the same for Luol.

Even though I'm loving this newly found confidence from the Dengster.

Deng's been doing great lately, but he's not better than Boozer.

Deng's also not playing any better overall than he has since the 2007 seasons (other than when he was injured in 2009). He's pretty much the same old Deng statistically. . .just taking more threes now.

That said, I like how he's playing anyway. Always did. His contract isn't seeming quite as bad lately, now that the Bulls are winning again :P

Re: Deng > Boozer
I will say this now. I see myself as a true fan and i watch each player and have been watching just about every game since 2005 that bulls play. I knew deng was worth his 12 mil contract. i was sad he took up that much cap space but knew he was worth it. Just about every game we play you can never point your finger at Deng and say we lost cause of him. Sometimes you can say we won cause of him. Sometimes you can say he didnt show up to be the savior but come on we never even signed him to be #1 option. we signed him cause he plays defense and can shoot.

Deng has been our most consistent player since he started. Just about (EVERY SINGLE GAME) you will see deng get 15+ points..... you count on that. In Olympic ball the other teams usualy double team triple team at some point i heard quadruple team him. But he still managed to score 10 - 20 points and 10 rebounds durring olympics. The guy has fundamentals to play ball thats pretty much why he does so good. I mean yeah lebron guarded him good but........ Is lebron > 2 people or lebron > 3 people? thats what deng has to do for his country. Trust me he has alot of pride and is why great britain basketball has a good run every year.

Also Thibs likes deng so well that he is leading the league in play time. Thibs is basicly making deng know he is going to play all game every night. Deng knows that winning is on his shoulders as well as rose's. When you play 40 minutes every other night as intense as deng does it would be hard to not get better. So yeah deng is a star. HE definatly is better than Pierce... meaning he should have seen some all star this year. i voted for him.

Re: Deng > Boozer
I also think that boozer will get better.

Re: Deng > Boozer
with noah playing boozer is still getting his 10 rebounds a game. He is still a knock down shooter and our inside presence. we are blessed this year guys and there is no reason we cant bring it all home. we will pick VC up in the offseason.

Now if we are comparing Taj and Boozer or Deng and another SF like Gay or Pierce, then yes, ..:rockon:
Interms of value, both are extremely valuable. Bulls might win right now in the regular season w/o Carlos esp with Taj but when playoffs start, when everything slows down and this team bleeds for points, the value of Carlos would be really high.
