Doesn't mean Deng is better, but they are the facts. I said LAST YEAR that Rose was overrated, and getting WAY too much credit, and that the Bulls were loaded (they hang their hat on D). Rose can play, one of the best players in the game, I know that - but dont ever doubt the impact of LUOL DENG. I was proven right again. Rose was NOT carrying the team like people thought.
using small sample sizes to prove Deng is more important to Bulls than their best player, and top 5 player in the league, last years MVP.
I am now starting to understand how ISH operates.
