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).”
Knicks, Bulls Preferred Landing Spots for Lonzo Ball
With the trade deadline looking, and numerous rumors connecting the Los Angeles Lakers to being buyers at the deadline, Lakers’ guard Lonzo Ball is preparing for a potential move.
The Lakers are tied to New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar Anthony Davis, but seem the Pelicans may opt to take their time in dealing the superstar big man.
Lakers guard Lonzo Ball is one name that has been linked to trades, and he has his own list of preferred destinations.
New Orleans currently has Elfrid Payton running the point, but could make Ball a building block should they acquire him.
Clippers Interested in Bulls’ Robin Lopez
Lopez is averaging 5.9 points and 2.9 rebounds per game this season for the Bulls.
Bulls’ Kris Dunn Discusses Shooting Struggles
Chicago Bulls point guard Kris Dunn has been going through a bit of a shooting slump over the past few games, managing single digit points in four of the last five games for the Bulls.
Dunn has been horrendous from mid-range, but is keeping his head down as he tries to work through the slump.
“Definitely going through it,” Dunn said after the game, according to Mark Strotman of NBC Sports Chicago. “It’s part of the NBA. It’s on me to find a way to get out of it. I feel like I’m getting to my spots and it’s just not knocking down right now.”
