Rose: Deng Deserves to be an All-Star
Now that Derrick Rose has once again been voted into the All-Star Game by the fans as a starter, it’s time for the players and coaches to put one more Chicago Bulls player into the game when the reserves are announced next week.
The veteran forward is deserving of a spot on the team — no matter when he returns to the floor after tearing a ligament in his wrist on Jan. 21 against the Charlotte Bobcats. Aside from Rose, (Luol) Deng has been the Bulls’ most important player. You could also make the argument that Deng has been the team’s most consistent player on both ends of the floor.
“Lu is definitely going to make the All-Star team this year,” Rose said after a win last month in Boston. “If he don’t, that would be cheating man. It would be cheating for sure.”
