It's possible Derrick Rose could be the Bulls' only representative in the All-Star Game. But at 22-6, the Bulls figure to get at least one more — and forward Luol Deng is the most worthy candidate.

Deng is averaging 16.4 points and 7.3 rebounds — not much different from any other season he's had with the Bulls. But with the Bulls playing so well, Deng's less-noticeable contributions might get recognized.

''We have a number of guys who are deserving. You could make a case for Carlos [Boozer] and Joakim [Noah] as well,'' Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. ''But to me, Luol, because of all the stuff that he brings to our team, it would be a shame if he didn't make it.''
