Gibson, new bench, debut with swagger

NEW YORK -- Taj Gibson tried to warn everyone. He tried to tell the masses that the Chicago Bulls' second unit beat the starters in practice everyday. He tried to explain to everybody before Wednesday night's destruction of the New York Knicks that the new Bench Mob was better than it had shown throughout much of the preseason.

Is Taj Gibson becoming a black hole?

Spoiler alert: No. [A big welcome to Kevin, formerly known here as 'FundamentallySound' and on his own site NBA Couchside. He'll be writing posts like these (and likely other types as well) at BlogABull. You can also follow him @NBAcouchside -yfbb] Taj Gibson's box-score stats from the first two preseason games have looked pretty good. He's averaged 13.5 points on 50% from the field, 5.5 rebounds, 2 assists, .5 steals, .5 blocks, and 2 turnovers in roughly 27 minutes per game. Those numbers don't really jump out as being much different than the Taj we've come to know and expect. In watching...
