One time can be a fluke, not that it was for Luol Deng when the Eastern Conference coaches sent Deng to his first NBA All-Star Game last year. But not twice; twice selected you are a star. So when Deng takes the court Sunday in Houston for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, he will be one of the senior guys with a half dozen first time All-Stars on the Eastern Conference team, including teammate Joakim Noah. Luol Deng by official NBA definition is a multiple NBA All-Star.
