Taj Gibson’s Emotional ‘Thank You Post’ To The Bulls Family


After 8 years, 562 games, 5280 points, 3587 rebounds and 695 blocks with the Bulls, Taj Gibson was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He loved playing for the Bulls, they were his family.

Gibon told reporters that vice president John Paxson, who was a father figure to him, gave him a long hug. Then Gibson took his feelings to Instagram and wrote an emotional, heartfelt message to the Bulls organisation and to Bulls fans.


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!

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


That is as classy as it gets. What a great guy!
