A league source said that Gibson's deal is actually for $34 million guaranteed and with different escalators in the contract it could reach as high as $39 million over the next four years.

I'm glad we locked Taj up for a while, but when I heard the initial figure of $38 million I thought it seemed just a bit high. I was hoping for something in the $32-$36 million range, so seeing that the guaranteed money is only $34 makes me even happier. Hopefully Taj won't be distracted anymore, because he certainly played like it was bothering him last night.

I am thrilled the Bulls finally made a deal that Taj's agent would agree to. The TAJinater is a keeper and he is worth the money. I would have been pissed beyond belief if the the Bulls lost Taj in the same way they lost Asik.

How would you have felt if we kept Asik but lost Taj? I honestly felt that Taj was more important to us, but seeing Asik play in Houston breaks my heart.

Honestly, it bothers me not at all that we lost Asik. I'd rather have Taj every day of the week, unless Noah's injured.:lol

But seriously Asik is a good defender, hell even a pretty good defender, and maybe with McHale he'll blossom into an acceptable scorer. But I can't imagine Taj not being a bull. He's just so much more valuable.

Awesome! I like having both Taj and Boozer right now. Boozer had shown some potential again this season. If he starts to get lazy again before the end of the season then amnesty him and start Taj.

Yeah, seeing the highlights of the game last night where Asik had 19 rebounds. I do miss him. But he's terrible on offense and Noah can rebound just as well as Asik. I still think the Rockets overpaid him.
