Gibson, who also vowed to try to play through a fractured rib for Saturday’s showdown against the Pistons, passionately defended the Bulls’ coach following Friday’s practice, which Gibson didn’t participate in. “They need to just shut up. Everybody tries to discredit this man, and it’s rough,” Gibson said. “He’s a rookie coach taking on a veteran group. Give him some slack, man. It’s hard enough as it is to come in. You’ve got the whole city of Chicago on your back. But I think he’s just learning, doing a good job. He’s staying with us, and I’m riding with him no matter what.
Taj Gibson always has been known as a warrior, someone who puts the team first and plays through pain. That reputation went to a new level Thursday when the Bulls announced Gibson has a fractured rib. Gibson, who missed Thursday’s game against the Rockets, later revealed X-rays showed the fracture following Monday’s loss to the Hawks. Gibson played the first half Tuesday in Indiana anyway. “We needed to get a win,” Gibson said.
