    Weak but expected.

    DENG?!?! Come on, I know the Bulls are the best, but that is why Rose wins the MVP, because he DOESNT have All Stars around him. Andy>Bosh. Kyrie>DWill. But hey, I’m not surprised at all.

    So the NBA coaches are really saying that, in a pickup game, they’re picking Deng over Andy? I’d maybe expect that in a fan vote, but not from the coaches.

    No surprises. Deng’s been great for CHI when healthy and they’re a top team in the east. Two injuries away from a Cav in an all-star uniform…

    Calling it now…..Andy gives Bosh a couple extra elbows in the face tonight to increase his chances of heading to Orlando next weekend.
