Chicago Bulls guard Kris Dunn hasn’t really capitalized on his potential and the Bulls are hoping that his second season in the Windy City will be much better than his first.

Dunn has been no stranger to criticism, and admits that he was “offended” over questions about his work ethic.

“I was definitely offended by it. My dad worked hard in life” Dunn said, according to the Chicago Tribune’s Shannon Ryan. “My brothers and sisters and me (took) hard work very seriously. It is the only way to succeed.”

Dunn won’t let the talk bother him and is looking forward to getting back to work and improving his game.

“You don’t get too caught up in it. You just keep doing what you do best. I know I work hard. I don’t have to prove it to anybody. I just have to show it on the court. I have no answers for (why the rumors originated). Whoever put it out there, that’s how they felt. Questioning my work ethic? That’s just (not valid). I work hard. If I’m not working, I’m around my family. Absolutely nothing (has changed about workouts or preparation).”
