Tyrus Thomas Unhappy with Bench Role

Something called Taj Gibson started at the 4-spot for the Bulls last night, which did not amuse Tyrus Thomas: “Was Thomas surprised he’s not starting? ‘A little bit, but he’s the guy who makes decisions,’ Thomas said before the game, referring to coach Vinny Del Negro. ‘I don’t even think it should be questionable, from what I’ve contributed to the team last season and what I did throughout camp. But like I said, he’s the guy making the decisions. Whatever decision he makes, I still have to go out and play.'”
