Deon vs. Alex: Neither overly worried about who will start for Tar Heels

Deon Thompson doesn't understand all the fuss. Yes, Brandan Wright is gone. And, yes, Thompson and fellow sophomore Alex Stepheson both want to fill the starting spot down low that Wright left. But the "loser" of the competition to start alongside All-American Tyler Hansbrough -- "I mean, I really don't see it as a competition," Thompson said -- still is going to have a large role for the Tar Heels this season.
