"They don't know Luol Deng is Barack Obama's favourite basketball player. They don't even know that he is British.": A great piece from the summer basketball camp Deng has hosted for the past five years, reflecting on his ability to inspire young Britons while remaining a relative unknown to the sporting press of his adopted home country.

Great article -- thanks for posting, etagloh. It's too bad Deng was injured last year in the playoffs; it would have been interesting to see if the Bulls could have advanced further with him and I look forward to seeing how they do this year with him. Great to see what he is doing off the court and interesting to see that he is relatively anonymous in the U.K.
