Luol Deng is a two-time NBA All-Star, but it doesn’t look like he has given up on becoming a professional soccer player. The Chicago Bulls forward was recently photographed wearing an Arsenal jersey. He uploaded the picture to his Instagram account on Wednesday. “Arsenal ke Brixton all day,” the caption said. Deng, 28, was born in Sudan, but he and his family moved to Britain when he was a child. He became an Arsenal fan while growing up in South London. He cheered for the likes of Ian Wright, Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams. He was also proud Gooner during the Thierry Henry and Patrick Viera era and remains one to this day. Last summer, Deng told Arsenal.com that he was a very good soccer player. He loved to play the game  and even had a spell with one of England’s youth national teams. Should Deng decide to drop basketball for the beautiful game, he need not worry about looking out of place.

Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau says Derrick Rose is ‘there now’

Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose is finally healthy and playing with “confidence.” The 24-year-old Rose suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in Game 1 of the 2012 Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Derrick Rose is Ready To Play Now

One small problem…………… The season has been over for the Bulls, so really makes no sense for the Bulls to point out that Rose is feeling back to normal now, it isn’t like it matters or anything. But, the Bulls want to let you know Rose is ready to go now. “I worked him out about a week ago,” Thibodeau said in a phone conversation Thursday. “It was great.” “Watching...

How the Chicago Bulls can beat the Miami Heat in 2014

When Derrick Rose went down with a torn ACL on April 28, 2012, the focus of the Chicago Bulls shifted dramatically. Instead of trying to compete for a title in 2012 and 2013, the focus immediately became on building the best team possible for 2014, when Rose would be back at (hopefully) full strength. It [...]The post How the Chicago Bulls can beat the Miami Heat in 2014 by Jon Vander...

Derrick Rose Looks “Great”, According To Tom Thibodeau

It’s been roughly one month since the Chicago Bulls were mercifully bounced in the second round in five games by the Miami Heat. Mercy for a MASH unit that put together a short (but spirited) playoff run. And mercy for an organization that experienced constant ******** from the Armchair Doctors of America, who were more focused on Derrick Rose’s choice of donning $2000 suits...

Derrick Rose Ready to Play

If Derrick Rose comes back and plays at  a MVP level next season while leading the Bulls to another great year, all of this will be forgotten. The thing is right now, it’s the off-season so this is really pointless. I’m sure Bulls fans wished he was ready while the Bulls were still in the [...]
