NBA player profile for Taj Gibson with stats and fantasy analysis

TAJ
GIBSON

Nov. 10, 2018 - Taj has been having an awesome season, but with the Timberwolves’ acquisition of Dario Saric and Robert Covington, Minnesota now has a boost of three point shooting talent it can place next to Rose, Wiggins, and Towns. This is a great trade for both teams considering the circumstances, but Taj might find himself losing some playing time and moving back into a bench role. He is a favorite of his coach, which could delay this inevitable move, but Taj simply can not stretch the floor enough to steal minutes from Saric.

There are always one or two guys on a team who— for a variety of reasons — can get along with almost anybody. Reminds me of the respect Taj Gibson built up through the years in Chicago. Jordan has found a nice niche for himself over time. t.co

Long commutes aren't all bad. I listened to A LOT of TBJ when I drove an hour each way to work. Fast forward a decade-plus and we are bros. What I'm saying is the Knicks should listen to #NoDunks every day and then Taj Gibson can join the show eventually. t.co
