Luol Deng

A two-time All-Star with the Chicago Bulls, Luol Deng was born in Sudan, moved to England as a child, and immigrated to the United States as a teen.  It was the latter move that allowed him to hone in skills in the game of basketball, and become the best player to come out of what is now South Sudan.

From Sudan, raised in England and schooled at Duke, Luol Deng was a top-ten pick by the Phoenix Suns, who, as part of a pre-arranged draft day agreement, entered the National Basketball Association with the Chicago Bulls.

New Section up: 2023 Basketball Futures

It is onward and upward for us at as we have added a new section, that of the Basketball Hall of Fame Futures for 2023.  

This is the group of former players who will be eligible for the Hall for the first time in 2023, and we have four former players in this section.

They are: 

Tony Parker:  Arguably the best player to come from France, Parker is a four-time NBA Champion with the San Antonio Spurs, and he was a Second Team All-NBA Selection three times.  Parker also went to the All-Star Game seven times.

Luol Deng:  From South Sudan, Deng was a two-time All-Star when he played for Chicago, and he was a Second Team All-Defensive player in 2011/12.

Dwyane Wade:  Wade went to thirteen All-Star Games and was a three-time NBA Champion, all with the Miami Heat.  He was also a First Team All-Star twice, and a Second Team and Third Team All-Star three times.

Dirk Nowitzki:  Nowitzki played his entire career with the Dallas Mavericks, the team he took an NBA Championship in 2011.  The German star was a four-time First Team All-NBA Selection, 14-time All-Star, and was the NBA MVP in 2007.

Parker, Wade and Nowitzki sounds like a pretty sweet class doesn’t it?  You can find the full page here of the 2023 eligibles here.
