2011 NBA Playoffs Video: Taj Gibson Posterizes Dwyane Wade

Taj Gibson was a pretty special defensive force for the USC Trojans, particularly his rebounding and blocking skills. He was always a great athlete though, and his incredible leaping abilities were always quite underrated. He's established himself as a solid bench player for the Chicago Bulls, as they now find themselves in the Eastern Conference Finals.

They suit him well on dunks too. After a Miami Heat turnover led to a three on one opportunity for the Bulls, Gibson did this to Dwyane Wade.
