Some 170,000 people have watched Taj Gibson's dunk over Dwyane Wade. At least that's just the number of views there are on the YouTube video of it.

One of them though is not the man that made the highlight. One of them is not Taj Gibson. Gibson joined ESPN Radio Chicago to talk about the Bulls big Game 1 win and of course, his poster of Wade.
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.”

His reaction to hearing Marv Albert’s call of his second dunk and Reggie Miller’s ‘I’ve been to the mountain and back’ comment:

“[Laughing] Sounds amazing.”
We'll have to take Gibson at his word here, but it's hard to imagine that he hasn't accounted for a couple thousand of the views on that video. I know if I were him, I'd just lock myself in a closet and watch it over and over and over again.

Wade though, has seen it. Not just him though, but one of his sons caught a replay as well. And he let dad know about it today.

Good to know that Zaire is keeping dad in check. Now he just needs to get him to make a jumper or two.

The thing about the dunk is not the play itself, but it is how you could feel the change of the game.  That dunk gave me the chills and you could get that same energy from the Bulls and the Chicago fans and that was awesome.  Gibson was a great player at USC and I was shocked he went so late in the draft, but you could also say the same for Noah.  I love the energy both players have and this could get them past the Heat.  One of the best playoff matchups in the past few years.  The energy of the Bulls big verses team talent.  Who will win?

Those dunks were extremely nasty. I like the fact that Wade's kid gave him a hard time. Ha, I wonder if his kid was wishing that dad came to the Bulls after he played the Bulls in the media during free agency.
