Bulls’ Kris Dunn Reflects On Tough Rookie Season

Published

on

Chicago Bulls guard Kris Dunn is enjoying his new team and taking advantage of an opportunity with the Bulls.

Since coming over from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Jimmy Butler trade, Dunn has made the best of his new position, averaging 11.8 points per game, 4.4 assists and 4.7 rebounds this season.

Those stats are a far cry from his rookie season, when the former 5th overall pick struggled to live up to expectations with Minnesota, posting 3.8 points and 2.4 assists while shooting 38 percent.

“Imagine your family coming to watch you play and you’re always sitting on the bench,” Dunn said in a revealing conversation with NBA.com’s Sam Smith.

“That never happened to us before. It was hard. I was almost embarrassed. All my life, my family looked at me as the one, the star. I felt like I was letting everyone down. It was kind of embarrassing. There were times I couldn’t face them after games because I felt like I wasn’t the person they were used to seeing.”

Dunn’s fresh start and his improved role in Chicago seems to have put his career back on track with what his potential was when he was drafted.
