Having resided in Sudan, Egypt, England and the United States, 6-foot-9 forward Luol Deng is decidedly qualified in the realm of ethnic celebrations. As the Chicago Bulls observed St. Patrick’s Day and its Irish origins, this green jersey was issued to the multi-cultured Deng during the 2009-10 season. The green micromesh pullover garment features black-on-white twill identifiers and proper “Adidas” tagging. While the Bulls donned this style for both the March 17 and March 19 games, the offered example saw no game action, as Deng was sidelined with a sprained right calf. More on our website.
The green micromesh pullover garment features “9” sewn to the front and back in black-on-white twill, “BULLS” arched atop the front number and “DENG” arched atop the back number in like fashion. A Bulls team logo is embroidered atop the back, while an NBA silhouette logo is sewn to the left shoulder stirrup. Green-white-and-black striped stretch ribbed knit lines the collar and arm yokes. On the vented left front tail, an “Adidas” size “52” label is accompanied by flap tags respectively denoting “2009-2010,” size “52” and “LENGTH +2.” Flanking these identifiers (above and below, respectively) are an NBA “St. Patrick’s Day – Special Edition” label and an NBA silhouette label which reads: “Mei Gray Group – NBA Game Worn 2009-2010 Season.” The latter hails from the exclusive distributor of these special event jerseys. All original and unaltered, the jersey shows no game wear. The Bulls wore these jerseys in both the March 17 game at Dallas and the March 19 home game vs. Cleveland. Deng was sidelined for both of those contests and did not return to action until April 2.
