Luol Deng Dances Around LeBron For An Incredible Basket
Usually it is LeBron James making the highlight reel plays at the expense of the opposition’s dignity, but last night the tables were turned, thanks to the Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng. After having his hands full guarding LeBron through the first two games of their best-of-seven series with the Cavs, it was Deng’s turn to put King James back on his heels as he crossed him over with a sweet behind the back dribble penetration move, before finishing things off with an incredible reverse layup.
The play was just one of many bright spots for the Bulls, who clawed their way back into the series with a 108-106 victory in front of a rowdy hometown crowd. Trailing 2-1, the Bulls will hope to even things up Sunday afternoon at the United Center, but something tells me that an angry LeBron will have other ideas.
So is Deng the first player to victimize LeBron? Not exactly, but I do recommend you soak in this image now, while you can, but it isn’t going to happen often.
