Q. (Question regarding Coach Krzyzewski).

LUOL DENG: After good games I'll always call him. We kept a good relationship. I'm really happy that that's the route that I took.

Q. Do you rib him at all about having a chance to play against him in the summer Olympics?

LUOL DENG: I don't think he's worried about that. No, I'm excited. I'm excited. I've never played against Coach K. Since I left Duke, I haven't really been around his coaching. I'm really excited, not only for me but for British basketball, the fact that years ago we didn't have a team. Now we're warming up against the U.S. and getting ready for the Olympics. It's exciting.

Q. Who is a guy in the NBA that you have the biggest challenge with in your opinion?

LUOL DENG: I really - I can't sit down and think about it. Every guy that I play against is pretty much tough. Every night you could get a guy, and they might have (inaudible.) A few years ago I tried to answer that question, but you never really know. When guys are that good, if you're not ready any night, someone is going to have their best day and it's going to be a tough night.

    Bullsville

    Don Ellis started covering sports professionally when he was 15. The same year (1980), as a student assistant at Seeger Memorial High School in West Lebanon, IN, he was one of the first in the world to use, study and implement analytics in basketball. He attended Daytona State College and Ball State University, and some of his past credits include InsideHoops (NBA Runaround: The NBA According to Ellis) and ESPN Florida (The Florida Sports Reporters), where he was fortunate enough to work with many rising stars, including NFL Network's Dan Hellie, Redskins coach Jay Gruden, Magic radio and TV personality Dante Marchitelli, and WSB-TV (Atlanta) Sports Director Zach Klein. In addition to running the Bullsville blog and officiating basketball, baseball and football for the KHSAA, he is also a bass player and vocalist who writes and produces music in his spare time (you may remember his internet hit "I Hate Eddy Curry"). He's a 3rd-generation Cubs fan, a Bulls fan since the days of Van Lier and Sloan, and a life-long New England Patriots fan. He's seen Primus 9 times and thinks Les Claypool walks on water. By far his greatest accomplishment is being a father of three and grandfather of one.
