Luol Deng’s Face Is on British Currency

The Brixton pound is launching a set of notes called “complementary currency.” Luol Deng is on the new five pound note. Via Ball Don’t Lie: “‘I am honored to be featured on the new Brixton Pound notes,’ said Deng on his foundation’s website. ‘I grew up as a young teenager player basketball for the Brixton Topcats which marked the beginning of my career. So it is with great pleasure that I am helping to support the local community that played a vital part in getting where I am today.’”

    Upon being given his £5 note, Luol banked £2.80, and gave the Bulls owners £2.20. This made Luol happy, the NBA Fans happy, and the Bulls owners happy, and the Owners bought lots of toys and candy. When they got home from the store they realised they’d spent £2.21, and were angry at Luol as they weren’t in the Charity Business, and had made a ‘Loss’ on this transaction. Luol was mad, the Owners were mad, the NBA Fans were confused, but hoped this would all blow over. But everyone stopped talking to each other, and went away on their Vacations, and didn’t talk for what felt like months. Time passed by, and we all looked at grainy photos of people in short shorts, and played NBA 2K12 without the rookies. Then in a few last minute moments, the Owners and Luol had a meeting and argued about how much money Luol should be given, and how much the Owners should be given. They also argued about how much Luol should get tomorrow, and the next day. Unfortunately, they couldn’t agree. So Luol didn’t play Basketball, and didn’t get his £5 note. Because of this, the Owners didn’t get their £2.21 or £2.30 that Luol offered. So no one had any money. The NBA Fans were unhappy, and chose to spend their £5 somewhere else, they felt disappointed that someone could be so reckless with the power that they have. Then at the last minute David Stern shouted £2.50 each. Shut up and grow up. No hard cap, very harsh luxury tax, so if you really, really wanna spend your cash, you’re gonna have to go the extra mile. Everything else is sortable. The time is right now…….
