Deng, I felt is one of the very few who moves well without the ball. Rose is looking like Kobe in a sense that he holds on to the ball waay to long, while his teammates esp Butler looks on and tries to get out of Rose's way.
Deng is good at cutting to the basket. We need butler as well to be more assertive. Last year without rose he would create a little bit more. I agree too much of everyone standing around and looking at Rose.
