The Wednesday night win over Memphis was a good one for Dunn. Forget his 21 points, nine assists and three steals. Key numbers, but not the intangibles that the young rebuilding Bulls sorely lack. Dunn’s actions were loud, but his voice was louder. “I told you guys that starting for the rest of the season, you know, that’s what I want to try and bring,’’ Dunn said when asked about his emergence as a team leader. “Try to not just do it with action, but be vocal. The defensive end, they feel like I can be one of the best defenders on our team, so I’ve gotta be the linebacker. If I see things I’ve got to communicate that to my team. On the offensive end, get everybody in the right spots and try and make the right plays.’’
Hoiberg said on Tuesday that he wanted Dunn to not worry about feelings and focus on leadership, and it didn’t take long for the message to sink in. “Yeah, I’m trying to do my job,’’ Dunn said. “We’re all men in here. If I’ve gotta be the bad guy I have no problem doing it. They all know I have no bad intentions. When I’m talking to my teammates I’m just trying to go out there and compete and win. And I think everybody is trying to do the same thing as me, so I don’t think they take it as me trying to yell and get everybody in the right position as criticism.’’
