The Knicks re-signed Taj Gibson Thursday, bringing back a member of the forecourt from last year and a veteran presence to lead this young team that drives the playoffs.
« Taj is a great teammate « He’s a great guy, brings that energy with him every day. He’s always training us and telling us to do the right thing, » said RJ Barrett on Friday. « So I’m very happy and excited to have him back. »
« I learned a lot from Taj last year, » added Mitchell Robinson. « I’m pretty sure he’ll work over the summer. I can’t wait for him to come in and show me some new things so that I can learn and grow as a player. »
Robinson is very young , and this season is only the beginning of his third year in the league. Robinson learned a lot from Gibson last season.
« He’s been around for a minute with Taj, so he knows the ropes. When he comes back I can learn more. I learned a lot from him last year and will continue to do so. » It’s great, « said Robinson.
The Knicks have already been hit with some injuries this season, with their forecourt scoring most notably between Obi Toppin and Nerlens Noel. Gibson will add another body to help and also brings the necessary depth to the great men.
« Now that we’ve got Taj back, Nerlens who comes back to us one day, I don’t really know much. But I think having only two will take the pressure off me, « said Robinson. » I can submit and take in a little more energy. So I can go out and keep playing hard. «
Gibson also played under Tom Thibodeau during his time with the Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves so he can help others understand his systems even better.
