Luol Deng - Pride and Honor CHARITY VIDEOS - DONATION VIDEO CLIPS - ORGANIZATIONS

Luol Deng (born April 16, 1985 in Wau, Sudan) is a British professional basketball player for the National Basketball Association\'s Chicago Bulls, where he plays small forward. When he was young, his father Aldo, a member of the Sudanese parliament, moved the family to Egypt to escape the Second Sudanese Civil War. In Egypt, they met former NBA center Manute Bol, another Dinka, who taught Deng\'s older brother, Deng Deng, how to play basketball. Manute also served as a mentor for Luol himself. When they were granted political asylum, his family emigrated to South Norwood in London, England. Deng developed an interest in association football and basketball, and was invited to join England\'s 15-and-under teams in both sports. During this time, he began his career at Brixton Topcats. At the age of 13, he played for England\'s squad in the European Junior Men\'s Qualifying Tournament, averaging 40 points and 14 rebounds. He was named the MVP of the tournament. Next, he led England to the finals of the European Junior National Tournament, where he averaged 34 points and earned another MVP award. He counts himself a fan of Arsenal F.C.After one year at Duke, Deng entered the 2004 NBA Draft. He was picked seventh overall by the Phoenix Suns, but was immediately traded to the Chicago Bulls by prior agreement. Deng suffered a season-ending wrist injury late in his rookie season, but still made the NBA All-Rookie First Team to helpthe resurgent Bulls return to the playoffs for the first time in several years. Deng averaged 11.7 points per game, playing in 61 games. On February 8, Deng recorded a double-double, including 30 points against the Dallas Mavericks.\n\nIn his second season, he posted strong performances throughout March and April to help the Bulls earn their second consecutive playoff berth. His offensive statistics improved in his sophomore season, increasing his scoring to 14.3 points per game, and increasing his rebounding to 6.6 per game, up from a 5.3 average his rookie season. Deng had four straight double-double performances from February 28 to March 5, with at least ten points and rebounds in each game. In the playoffs, the Bulls faced off against the Miami Heat in a best of 7 game series. Deng came off the bench in all six games, averaging ten points per game.\n\nFor the 2006-07 season, Deng was the only Bull to start all 82 regular season games. All of his numbers continued to improve, and he led the team in minutes played (37.5) and field goal percentage (.517), while playing a strong second scoring option to Ben Gordon, with a marked improvement to 18.8 points per game. Deng also notably rarely committed fouls on defense (2.00 per game), despite the minutes he played and frequently being outsized in matchups against power forwards such as Kevin Garnett.\n\nOn December 27, 2006 Deng was driving the lane when Miami Heat player James Posey grabbed him and slammed him to the floor, causingconcern that Deng may have re-injured his wrist. Posey earned a flagrant foul, was ejected and suspended for one game. Deng scored 32 points against the Cavaliers just three nights later, however, resolving concern that the wrist would be re-injured. On March 26, 2007 Deng posted a new career-high38 points to leadthe Bulls to a home victory against the Portland Trail Blazers. Deng was in rhythm, converting a spectacular 18 of his 25 shots from the field.Deng continues to credit Manute Bol as a major influence, saying \"He has really helped me out in my life and I know that if I\'m playing this game then it\'s thanks to him, so I owe him a lot.\" \"Manute started me with this whole thing and basketball. Our relationship is one where he is like an olderbrother or a father to me. He gives me a lot of advice.\"\n\nOn May 3, 2007, Deng won the NBA\'s sportsmanship award in a vote by players. The award honors the player who best exemplifies ethical behavior, fair play and integrity on the court. Deng is involved in numerous charities, and the league willdonate $25,000 on his behalf to Pacific Garden Mission, the oldest continuously operating rescue mission in the country. \"He really does epitomize everything I had hoped for as a person and a basketball player,\" general manager John Paxson said. \"I think it\'s one of the reasons we\'ve gotten to thelevel we\'re at this year. I\'m truly proud of him. I think the world of him as a person and as a player.\"\n\nDeng also won the 2006-2007 Golden Icon Award for Best Sports Role Model. The awards are presented by the Travolta entertainment family.[9].\n\nDuring the summers of 2006 and 2007 Luol went to Africa, Asia and Europe with the NBA for their Basketball Without Borders Tour and he is also a spokesperson for the World Food Programme.\n\nLuol will be the cover athlete of the upcoming NBA live 09 video game in the UK and Ireland.
