Dalen Terry has hilarious reaction to Arizona State-themed team bus
Dalen Terry is enjoying most of his Summer League stint with the Bulls in Las Vegas. Most of it.
Chicago’s team bus at the NBA 2K23 Summer League is an Arizona State bus. He joked with The Arizona Daily Star’s Justin Spears on Tuesday that it could have been any other team bus and he would have been fine with it.
”I don’t even want to talk about it,” he said. “When we walked up to the bus, I was like, ‘Hey man what are we doing.’ I’m a Wildcat forever. Bear down.
“One time before this we were on an ASU bus. I see them and I’m like, ‘Why’d they get an ASU bus?’ Should have used a UNLV one or something like that. Anything but that school.”
The Chicago Bulls’ team bus today was ASU-themed. 😳

The 18th pick in the 2022 NBA Draft is starting to find his groove in Las Vegas after a rough start
In Terry’s first two outings, he was charged with a combined 13 turnovers. He was pressing, forcing the action with his passes and his drives.
On Tuesday against the Raptors, though, the Bulls changed up his role. Instead of a primary ball-handler and a trigger man, Chicago used the rangy guard as an off-ball slasher. Terry flourished—14 points, five rebounds, two assists, 4-of-6 shooting from the field, 6-of-7 from the charity stripe, and a plus-14 in 20 minutes. Better yet: three turnovers.
“I feel like in the other games I was thinking about it a lot more,” Terry said, via The Athletic’s Darnell Mayberry. “I was forcing it a little bit. Today, I just let the game come to me and we had a good outcome.”
Chicago won by 10.
On Thursday against the Hornets—another Bulls win, this time 89-73—Terry was even more impressive. He put up 20 points in 24 minutes while shooting 8-for-12 from the field. He also contributed five boards, two steals, and a block. The giveaways? Just two. And Chicago outscored the Hornets by 11 with Terry on the floor.
Monster game from Dalen Terry, his best of Summer League by far
20 points on 8/12 FGs, 2/2 3s and 2/2 FTs with 5 rebs, 1 ast, 2 stls, 1 block
