Nick Friedell: Jimmy Butler on Taj Gibson: “Taj was amazing to me all the years that I’ve been here. One thing you could count on Taj, he was coming in bright spirited every day. He isn’t emotional as I am on a day to day basis. Any day that anybody walked in pissed off or sad or whatever it may be, all you got to do is look at Taj, man. Taj is always smiling. That’s what we’re going to miss. He did all the little things for us and played extremely hard. But I think the person that he was — that’s what’s going to be missed. Basketball is basketball, that’s forever going to be my guy from Fort Greene, Brooklyn.”

“It was a process,” Gibson said. “I just believed in the process. I believed in doing the right things. When you believe in doing the right things, playing for a successful organization like the Bulls, good things can happen. Like I told the young guys, ‘I was the guy off the bench for a while. But because my team and coaching staff, we worked hard and won games, I was able to get a big piece of the pie, too.’ I was always trying to be a leader on the court. I’m excited to just move forward. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, as far as just being here for so many years. I’m just really saddened that we didn’t get a chance to win one. I’m saddened that I didn’t get a chance to finish off the year. My agent and everybody knows how badly I wanted to stay here. But, gotta stay focused. Going to a new situation. New chapter.”
Taj Gibson: Today was such an emotional day for me. From the time I heard my name called by David Stern, I have been so proud and honored to be a Chicago Bull. To Jerry Reinsdorf, John Paxson, Gar Forman, Coach Thibs, and Coach Hoiberg, you have all helped me grow into who I am today. There is no way I can ever thank you enough for the opportunities you have presented to me. I will be indebted to all of you forever!

Taj Gibson: To the Fans of Chicago, you have made playing for the Bulls everything I could’ve dreamed of and more. From the incredible support that we get every night at the United Center to the reaction I always receive walking down the streets, it would be impossible for all of you to make me feel more special. Every single one of you will always have a piece of my heart. I have also had such an incredible group of teammates and assistant coaches, who all created moments that I could have never imagined coming true. So, here is just a real heartfelt thank you to all of you for letting a New York City kid live out his dreams as a Chicago Bull. Now, it’s off to OKC and a new chapter in my life and I’m so excited to see what lies ahead. All I can tell the Thunder fans is that you’ll get everything I’ve got every single day and I’m looking forward to our journey together! #thankyouchicago #heaveyheart #seerednation #thunderup
