Me: I am always curious about what happens in the hours after someone is traded. What do you do with your stuff? Taj Gibson: First things first. You just get the call. And immediately, you try to think of everything you wish you had did previously, throughout all the years you’ve been in a city, that you just didn’t do. And everything is just flying through your mind — ‘I’ve got to say goodbye to this person.’ But then, you’ve got like four or five hours to catch the plane. So you’re just packing stuff, you don’t know what you need —
Me: Does it help that you came with McDermott and that you can kind of go through this together? TG: Oh, man. He’s at the end of the bench with me some nights, and he’s like, ‘I’m happy that I came here with you. I don’t know how I could deal with the situation (alone).’ It’s hard, when you’ve been in a place a long time, and every day, almost every game, the few games that I’ve been playing with this team, it’s still, it feels weird. Because you’re looking at different colors. You’re on, I’m on a whole different coast. The West Coast is extremely talented. Every night, you’re getting the best of the best. And it’s great to have Doug with me.
