Luol Deng is in a good place.
Yes, yes, it’s Cleveland and we know Joakim Noah doesn’t vacation there and the lake no longer is on fire—actually, it’s frozen like in Chicago—and they can’t win in football and baseball and LeBron left and there’s a new Roosevelt book out and they’re making fat jokes about Ohio’s Taft again.
