Luol Deng is headed to his 2nd straight All-Star game and while it’s always been a goal of his, the 9th year vet says he wasn’t happy playing in Chicago until Bulls 3rd year coach, Tom Thibodeau, came in and made him feel wanted.
According to Sam Smith, Bulls.com:
“I was going to try to be an All-Star and try to reach how good I could be. Luckily for me, Thibs and the coaching staff came here and made me feel it was better being here. I’ll be honest with you. Before he came, I wasn’t really happy being here.”
