The Bulls seem to be playing pretty well right now - as good as they've played all year. With Deng hurt, John Salmons has filled in nicely as the # 3 guard. In fact, I am pleasantly surprised by how well he's playing; I did not realize that he is this good. I'm not saying he's a superstar, but he certainly has played better than Luol Deng (especially as a scorer). Who knows if Deng will be back this year or not, but I'm inclined to think they are better off without him. I think he's too timid, too sensitive, and he doesn't do anything on the court particularly well (too bad about his contract). Anyway, I'm wondering what other people think: are the Bulls better without Luol Deng?
