K.C Johnson's post on Chicago Bulls | Latest updates on Sulia
Taj Gibson said pressure of living up to contract extension isn't affecting his play, is confident he is improving.
"There’s always pressure because you’re wearing the Bulls jersey," Gibson said. "I’m still adjusting to a different team and having to do a lot more on defense, talking more. I have to be more vocal. The coaching staff is telling me to keep working.
"I’ve been frustrated I haven’t been able to shoot well. I put a ton of work in this summer. I just have to work my way out of it. I’m trying to do other things---be solid on defense, make plays for others like I did last game and try to bring energy to help us win."
Coach Tom Thibodeau said Gibson's play has improved the last three games.
