All-Star Game starring Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, and Tom Thibodeau: Open Thread

Awww, this picture makes me so happy. (Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE)

Derrick Rose is starting for the East, Luol Deng is coming off the bench, and Tom Thibodeau is coaching. So while there was no Bulls involvement last night, one of the best teams in the league is well represented today.

While you wait for the game, do some reading on Bulls culture. It's full of fun things like hard work and early alarm clocks. ESPNChicago on how Rose and Deng take the lead from Thibs, and Sam Smith gets to know the entire Bulls coaching staff before they headed to Orlando.

For some on-court pondering, Zach Lowe looks at some potential intriguing matchups in the game. And hopes that it's not like a regular season matchup where the answer to every problem is Luol Deng.
