Ayo Dosunmu is a Chicagoan.
As evidence, check his diploma from Morgan Park High School, or the countless testimonials by Chicago Bulls coaches and teammates that he is a fearless player and tireless worker.
You could also mosey over to Dosunmu's Instagram account, where he Sunday afternoon posted a video of him rooting on his hometown Bears from the rain-soaked seats of Soldier Field:

Indeed, only a true fan could have weathered those conditions. Sunday saw various areas of Chicago log 3 to 5 inches of rain in a storm that produced some of the city's most severe flooding in recent memory.
Still, through a field that by the fourth quarter appeared almost completely submerged, the Bears marched to an upset victory over the San Francisco 49ers, 19-10. (Although perhaps a better verb would be "slid".)
Dosunmu's offseason is coming to an end, with the opening of NBA training camps looming in the final week of September. His Bulls will then seek to build on the 46-36 record and playoff berth they achieved in 2021-22, while Dosunmu will look to use his stellar rookie season as a springboard to even loftier individual heights.
All the while, expect him to continue rooting on his underdog Bears. As all Chicagoans will.
