A Quiet Shout-Out

Luol Deng has been announced as the winner of the NBA's Joe Dumars Trophy, an award given for sportsmanship, according to the AP.

I didn't know this until five minutes ago: this is an award for which only the players vote.

Peer recognition, in a category overlooked in too many walks of life. Somehow, it seems like there should be more fanfare.

Congratulations, Mr. Deng.
