Taj the Magnificent

| 1 Comment

Taj Gibson had been playing solid, under-the-radar basketball all postseason, but the NBA nation is noticing him now after a showstopping display Sunday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Thumbnail image for Gibson-Facial.jpgFinals.

In the first half, he served up a facial dunk on the head of none other than Dwyane Wade. 

Then, LeBron James tried to take him one-on-one and he swatted his shot away, which prompted TNT analyst Steve Kerr to say, "When Taj Gibson becomes a starter, he will be a perennial 1st-team All-Defensive performer."

And for his finale, Trojan Taj lifted the roof off the United Center with a ridiculous one-handed putback slam.

Which dunk was more impressive??  You decide.
