It's up to you Luol Deng
We have been told by John Paxson that you are this teams superstar for a couple of years now. You have the Duke pedigree and raw athleticism and are on the cusp of being an all star well now it is time for you to take the next step. You turned down a multiyear extension before this season and then your game suffered. If you are going to be a superstar you have to have the mental toughness to play through things like that. Look at the statue outside of the United Center! If you slapped him in the face he kicked you in the nuts, he would step on your throat and rip your heart out. His teammate was the same way. Now you may not be as talented as that duo but play to you potential! Be that guy who wants the ball with five seconds left for the last shot to win the game. Kobe wants the ball for that shot, Lebron wants it Paul Pierce too! You have talent please use it! Be our superstar! It is up to you.
