The NBA Dribbled Out

“He wants to get back to be at the level he was, if not better, more than anyone. So when we do well, or when we struggle, everyone wants to talk about, ‘This team is winning without Derrick; imagine what they’d be with Derrick.’ Or, ‘This team is losing; why should he come back?’ It really doesn’t matter. The decision should be, ‘I feel great, I’m ready to come back.’ Or ‘I’m not so great; I’m going to come back next year, when I’m ready.’ That should totally be [based on] how the guy feels, not how we’re doing.” 
-Luol Deng
If you’re ever wondering what being an incredible teammate looks like, or you need overt evidence to support that claim, just look at these words Luol Deng told David Aldridge last week. Because those words show what a real teammate looks like: a man more concerned for his teammate’s health than he is for the team or himself. Why do you think everyone on the Bulls plays so hard and unselfish? It’s because they all pull for each other like Deng is doing here for Rose.
