Luol Deng Will Lead Britain's Basketball Team in 2012 London Olympics


Luol a star? I think so ...

As I was sifting through ESPN this morning along with other basketball and sporting sites as I usually do, I came across an interesting headline.

In ESPN's featured sidebar to the right of the big slider on the website's NBA section, there was a headline showcasing our very own, Luol Deng. In that headline link, Deng is pegged as a "NBA star." Something I'm quite comfortable with.

The headline read: 'Deng Only NBA Star On British Team For London' and can be read here

London natives Ben Gordon and Byron Mullens (both play for the Charlotte Bobcats) won't be playing alongside Luol in the upcoming games. The only other NBA caliber player is Pops Mensah-Bonsu. Pops was a star in the States during his college days. PMB was a stellar power forward in the Atlantic 10 conference playing for George Washington University.

Deng says that he plans to make Britain proud of their country's basketball team.
