The Lakers made some mistakes with Luol Deng, and only one of them was signing him to a four-year, million contract. The NBA Africa Game afforded the 33-year-old a rare opportunity to show he can still play this sport. I sure hope he savored it because we all know the Lakers aren’t going to run Deng out on the court for a meaningful game anytime soon. Nearly a year after playing in an NBA game Deng suited up for Team Africa in the annual contest, facing up against fellow Laker JaVale McGee while scoring 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting. I presume Deng can go back to being the opposite of an uncredited cameo in a blockbuster movie. In Deng’s case, he will get billing on the roster but be a specter
