The Taj Gibson And Dwyane Wade Poster We've All Been Waiting For

Who knows whether that Heat-Bulls Game 1 game was an omen for the way the rest of this series is going to play out, but if it was, then that posterization from Taj Gibson won't soon be forgotten. Especially with photos like this one, courtesy of the NBA's Twitter feed.

Sort of makes the NBA Playoffs look like a comic book, which I guess they sort of are.

Hear from Taj, himself, after the jump.

Gibson talked to ESPN Radio in Chicago and Sports Radio Interviews has the transcript:

On which of his two dunks he liked better:

"I don’t really remember them to tell you the truth. It’s been a roller-coaster ride. I’m just happy we got the win."

So he’s saying he didn’t go home and watch highlights of his two impressive dunks?

"I swear, I haven’t even watched any film on it. Everybody just keeps texting me about it, but I honestly didn’t even watch it."

If the Bulls 20-plus point win means more to the trajectory of the series beyond just counting for a single win:

"Just winning one game was the most important thing; just getting the first one. Especially playing at home, you really want to win the first game to set a good momentum. But like Tibs said, the first game is totally different, it’s behind us now, and expect much more of a battle — an even harder battle — in the second game. I know that’s a good veteran team, and I know they’re going to be ready."

If he relishes the occasional opportunity to guard LeBron when he gets rotated over to him late in the shot clock:

"It’s fun. That’s what you play basketball your whole life for — to get moments like this where you go against some of the greatest ones around. It’s a wonderful feeling."
