Billy Donovan bats for Ayo Dosunmu’s constant greatness

For a player in the making like Dosunmu, consistency is essential.

Chicago Bulls guard Ayo Dosunmu took advantage of injuries to get a seat at the table. In February, he averaged 15.7 points and shot an amazing 55.9 percent from three-point range, a significant improvement over his sophomore season when he made just 31.2 percent of his long-distance shots.

This season, Dosunmu has blossomed, replacing the injured Patrick Williams and thriving in a Bulls offense that relies heavily on shooting, rapid decision-making, and ball movement. Bulls coach Billy Donovan is hoping for greater consistency from his rising star in terms of the third-year pro.

Could he leave his prints on the game? We discuss those stuff a lot with our young men,” Donovan remarked.

“I believe that’s what these young guys need to fight for: if you play ten games, okay, you might play poorly in one or two of them, but in the other eight, you play within a box and you’re usually pretty consistent, responsible, and dependable in those circumstances.”
