    I like Deng, but he’s not infallible. He has made a few bad decisions himself since coming to the Cavs… maybe it’s just infectious. He made some bad decisions in yesterday’s game to try to go ISO and score by himself… didn’t work out very often. I still like him though… would still like to see him in Cleveland for several years.

    Deng is playing a little worse than he did in CHI…but he is not the problem here.

    If anyone was expecting Deng to make this team a serious playoff contender, you are sadly mistaken.
