Re: Rudy Gay vs. Luol Deng
I think some opinions here are going overboard, on both sides.
Rudy Gay is not a bad defender and he's a good player. He needs to be in a system but he also needs to work on his game, which he clearly does not.
I didn't know Luol Deng was a 41% shooter. I thought he shot .465 for his career and that last year was a low, while this year he's shooting .496. I also see he shoots .335 for his career from 3. Let's not kill him.
He's the sort of player who would do well in just about any situation. He's not a star, but he's the kind of guy you want on your team. I also can't see he's an overrated defender.
