tajusa1 VIDEO: Taj Gibson Makes The Most Out Of His Team USA Experience

Taj Gibson is enjoying every minute of his USA Select Team experience in Las Vegas training with the USA Olympians, “It’s crazy, just coming in and most of the superstars in the league talking to me on a personal level, just talking about the game, things I can do better and it’s been great,” he recently told CSN Chicago.  If Gibson comes into next season playing like he was in the playoffs, he’s going to be one of those “superstars” very soon.  And as Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports on Twitter, as the Bulls mull over Asik’s offer sheet, “one major financial concern is rising future price of paying Taj Gibson.”  Gibson will become a free agent at the conclusion of next season and has already stated that he wants to remain with the Bulls: “I believe my future is here.”  Do the Bulls feel the same? If they match Asik’s offer sheet, which many outlets believe will be the case, the Bulls will almost certainly use the amnesty on fan favorite, Carlos Boozer next summer if they want to keep Taj and give the fans more of this and less of <a href="">this.

Anyway, check out Taj Gibson at Team USA practice talk about his experience and even share a few thoughts on his own free agency:
