When the Cleveland Cavaliers sent Bynum packing and got Luol Deng from Chicago, people were excited. After seeing him score 27 points against the Lakers to help his new team win on the road, the fans have a reason to be excited.
Deng is exactly what the Cavaliers needed. He is a veteran player who can make a difference in the game. He led all scoring for the Cavs in LA and he can help to take some pressure off the other guys to help them get to the basket too.
Deng played 38 minutes in the game. He is a player that knows what it takes to win and Cavs coach Mike Brown needed a guy who can help stress the urgency of winning to the young players on this Cavaliers team.
Brown just said, the young guys don’t know the urgency of winning in the NBA. Something tells me the young guys are going to find out quickly from Deng about winning. This guy is an all star and watching his play against LA shows us why he was an All Star.
Just think about when he gets used to his new team. These guys will be in games, with the best of them I think. It isn’t often the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the LA Lakers but seeing the final score of 120-118 shows us it is real.
Welcome to Cleveland Luol Deng…….
