Chicago Bulls rookie Wendell Carter Jr. is dedicated to helping the franchise return a winning culture, and says that he is ready to put the team on his shoulders to accomplish the feat of rebuilding a winning culture.
“I’m always up for a challenge,” Carter Jr said, during an interview with Jon Greenberg of The Athletic. “I’m not afraid to fail. If I’m going to fail, I’m going to do it hard. I’m going to go hard as I can in failing. So I feel like that can be appreciated from all the coaches. I’m a hard worker, so I feel like that’s going to translate to the responsibility side of doing whatever we have to do. Put it on my shoulders and I’m going to make it happen.”
“We’re going to bring back the winning culture to Chicago,” he said. “If it’s not make the playoffs and win the championship in the first year, I guarantee it’s going to be a progressive step each year. I can promise that to all Bulls fans. I’ll take that on my shoulders.”
Carter, 19, will be the Bulls starting center as the team opens the season, as announced by head coach Fred Hoiberg.
