Critics have razzed Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng for competing in the Olympics on behalf of Great Britain. But Deng tells WBEZ that he wanted to give back to a country that gave him and his family more than they could ever hope for.
I wanted the headline of this post to be "Kurt Thomas takes his talents to South Beach." But that will have to wait until, um, never. The Bulls season is over. And the hated Miami Heat move on to the NBA Finals.Last night, I attended Game 5 at the United Center.
The Chicago Bulls are wrapping up their regular season Wednesday night. They'll end their season at the top of the Eastern Conference, maybe even the league if they win their ninth game in a row tonight against New Jersey at the United Center. The Bulls haven't lost since March 28.
WBEZ Sports Contributor Cheryl Raye Stout has covered the Bulls for years at the Berto Center. She has developed relationships with Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Bill Cartwright, and the newer Bulls like Luol Deng.Deng is the starting small forward for the Chicago Bulls.
