NBA ROLE: TWO-WAY POWER FORWARD

 

‘The Hard Hat-Lunch Pail’ approach: Taj Gibson’s path to success; works and works and works on the glass, in the paint, and on defense – Gibson's been at a staple at the four since entering the league w/ CHI in '09; remains one of the league’s most versatile front court defenders – understands PnR switches, slides his feet and stays vertical when pursuing shots on the ineterior; Taj features a few spinning hooks & counters after facing up but makes his most noise utilizing a high-arching J from midrange (unless he has the speed advantage – then, it’s a crossover followed by a lefty finish); high-volume rebounder, keeps plays alive, finishes off defensive possessions; will play any role you ask – Taj has gone from starter to 6MOY candidate..back to starter – does a bit of everything
