He's not that good.

If he was a legit second option and an elite defender, like he had the potential to be, than he would be more respected.

I don't dislike the guy in any way at all that's just how I see it.

What about the pace and style the bulls play? not very stat friendly but its ok, think that your clever because you noticed that Deng plays a few more minutes then your average valuable starter.

Deng knows his role is an underrated finisher at the rim and rarely shoots ill advised shots, bar long two's. Then his off ball movement is great and judging be league standard you could almost say elite. We all know about the defence, Deng deserves respect and should stay a Bull for life.

Because he has glaring weaknesses. Weaknesses which hurt the Bulls on the offensive end. He is a slasher and wide open shooter, that's it. He's got no mid-range game and cannot beat opponents off the dribble. Whenever he attempts to drive and dish it out midstride, he turns it over just as much as he does getting the pass off.

Tell me I'm wrong

I respect Deng as a good third option player at best. He's not going to be your second star for a good 1-2 punch. He just doesn't have the type of skills to break a defense down consistently. Defensively he's good but gives too much respect and space to perimeter stars so they can get in a comfort zone against him. In contrast I like how Jimmy Butler gives no respect to star players and crowds the hell of them to get them out of their rhythm.

Pretty much. I didn't point out his obvious flaws on the defensive end as you did, but you are right on the money. He's effective at defending against the the drive and the passing lane with those long arms of his, but he gets beat all the time on the perimeter.

He's the bizarro Ron Artest on defense
