Default Why is Taj Gibson not a starter?

Seriously other than a better jumpshot (Taj got a respectable one) wtf does Boozer do better than Taj? Taj is as good defender (elite on the pick n roll) as you will find at the PF spot, got post game, will do dirty work and If you play off him can hit the mid range jumper and to top it all off he's a way better athlete and a two way player with a presence.

The dude is better than Boozer he's younger and on a better contract wtf are the Bulls doing? The dude needs to go to a team where he can start stop wasting the guys talent.

Been bailing out the Bulls this whole series due to Boozer's pathetic ass.

When Taj plays well he impacts both ends and actually gets to the free throw line.......I don't see how it doesn't compare.

Do you really want Boozer out there without Noah next to him?

Well you gotta play Boozer somewhere since he's being paid so much, might as well get him his minutes at the start.

Problem is Dunleavy AND Boozer in the lineup hurts so much defensively, especially when they don't give you anything on offense.

This is where trading Deng away really hurt them. You look at that roster and realize they have no reliable wing options off the bench.

He likely will be next year. Thibodeau likes having Taj finish the game, so starting him would be counter productive. He still plays more than Boozer.

Boozer isn't as mobile as he was back in his Utah days.

Booz hasn't been amnestied or traded yet. Taj will start next season though! Really solid player. Plus, like somebody else said, Gibson is a great big off the bench (probably best in the NBA) and allows some rim protection when Noah is off the court. Doesn't Taj finish the fourth quarter though?

Good footwork and post game, draws fouls and hits his FTs and most importantly unlike Boozer he is consistent.
