Default Loul Deng could be making a huge name for himself coming up...

If he does continue to play well and help beat Miami and win it all he will go into the summer trying to lead Great Britain to success in the world championships. They need to do well to quailfy for the olympics. How huge will that be for that country to be a player in the world game. Deng's status could jump really high in terms of euro ball standard.

Any people from the UK here? how is he seen back home now?

He's a great guy and one of the hardest working players in the league. He does EVERYTHING at least average and most things GOOD. He was snubbed from the All Defensive team and unfortunately wasn't a big enough name for the All Star team. His biggest knock from Chicago fans, and the league in general, was 1)injury prone and 2)would bottle up himself in big games. He's fixed both of those these years and is probably the Bulls 2nd best player.

He should have been an all-star this year.

Basketball generally isn't a big sport out here. It's grown in popularity among young people, but it doesn't get much media attention, so Luol's not a celebrity or anything. He might get a newspaper article or two if he gets to the Finals. I'm sure he will get plenty of column inches in the run-up to the Olympics though.

Also GB basketball has been granted qualification to the 2012 games as hosts, so this summer's international tournament isn't crucial in that sense

I thought that they needed to perform well this summer to get in. Pretty sure that is the case.

Hope he can contiune to play LeBron tough. Just make him work for anything he gets.

There are not many guys who can provide as much as he does on both ends of the floor. And he should of been on one of the defensive teams this year.

It was the case, but a couple months ago (iirc) FIBA ruled that GB would automatically qualify. Failing to qualifying via a tournament was a serious risk and it would suck to have no host b-ball team at the Olympics

99.9% of people in the UK do not know what a 'Luol Deng' is in the UK.

Shame, really, hopefully if GB play in the Olympics it might raise interest up a lot.
