Taj Gibson Gets the Conference Finals Started With a Bang
Specifically, Gibson banged all over the face, head and body of Dwyane Wade as Chicago stomped the Miami Heat in Game One of the Eastern Conference Finals. While the Bulls’ defense told the story of the whipping, it was Gibson’s fantastic smash over Wade that set the tone. Twitter loved it, as did the rest of the Internet — save Heat fans, I’m sure.
Although, considering the bandwagon nature of at least some members of that stable, do their feelings count?
Joking aside, while Game One was indeed a dominate performance from the Bulls, it would be foolhardy to consider the Heat done. Surely the names “LeBron James” and the aforementioned Wade still resonate in the NBA, right? Expect Wade to be looking for some payback come Game Two. If he happens to smash on Gibson, all the better, no doubt.
As for the almighty Taj, his vicious destruction of Wade was not his only notable dunk of the night.
Part two of Gibson’s smashing evening:
One thing’s for sure: Reggie Miller is undoubtedly a Taj Gibson fan for life. Now for the poster:
If you’re making a life-sized version of that, please make me a copy, too.
Game Two isn’t until Wednesday night, but before that, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Dallas Mavericks begin their Western Conference Finals throwdown. No matter the outcome, both teams have their work cut out for them if they want to outdo Taj Gibson’s vicious display of dunking aptitude.
