Power forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Taj Gibson, is set to enter his 10th seasons in the NBA and second season with the Timberwolves. Gibson has always been known around the league for his hard, physical play and his exceptional work ethic. For most of Gibson’s career, including on the Timberwolves, he’s played under the notoriously demanding coach Tom Thibodeau who is able to find in Gibson the hard-working ability the coach prides his teams on having.
Last season, Gibson showed his off this exceptional effort-level by starting in all 82 games, while boasting a career-high in minutes per game and field goal percentage. The Timberwolves are looking to make the playoffs again in 2018 with a young core led by All-Star Karl Anthony-Towns, while Gibson will look to prepare himself to have another stellar season.
