The Bulls forward seals the victory.

Taj Gibson and his hops were the unexpected stars in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals last night.

    He dunked on DWade and Asik, nobody else in the L can say that!

  • Mike From Spain

    did he trade workout tips with DRose? those are some hops!

    And to think we were going to get rid of Gibson for Carmelo Anthony. Thank god we kept him, otherwise we wouldn’t see him do that and see him dunk on Wade. Thank U Bulls management.

    don’t thank bulls management, thank lala for insisting that they be in new york.

    i hope that wasnt a one game sampler, hope he keeps up that intensity throughout the rest of the playoffs.

    This made me jump more than the Wade dunk.


    “The Taj Mahal”. Mos def better than the 1 on Wade

  • Holiday

    He defiantly stole the show, this was sicker than the Blake Griffin car dunk in my opinion… but also Brewer posterized Bosh I do believe, somebody anyway it wasnt as nasty but got me stoked!

  • robb

    I guess I’ll provide the hate since none of you will step up. Not impressed, I’ve seen much better. I mean, dude is like 6’10, how difficult is it to do a thunderous follow up tip dunk over the back of your own teammate? Next!

    Taj Mahal is such a layman’s nickname. Let’s please not let that be a “thing”

  • giogolo

    i think gibson is more of like 6’8 1/2″ minus the shoes. he’s listed as 6’9″.
