This is about a week old, but I missed it in the flurry to discuss Carlos Boozer’s championship aspirations this season.
From the same day, Nick Friedell also caught up with Taj Gibson who was also at the House of Hoops opening:
Gibson gutted his way through the entire 82 game season a year ago
while dealing with plantar fasciitis in his foot, but after a summer’s
worth of rehab he feels like he is healthy and ready to go.
“It’s feeling much better,” he said. “Just getting rehab, staying on
it, get icing [treatments], it’s been going well. The Bulls staff has
taken really good care of my foot.”
Speaking of the Bulls’ coaching staff, Gibson has been impressed early on by what he’s seen from new head coach Tom Thibodeau.
“It’s been great,” he said. “I’ve been going in [the Berto Center]
everyday, working out extremely hard trying to get better and just
learning from him and his staff. The staff has been treating me so well,
[I’m] just learning from them. Thibs is a coach we’re going to have a
great respect for, just how he goes with his gameplans and how he
handles his business and I’m just looking forward to learning from him.”
