Bulls forward Taj Gibson is known around the team, at least to his buddy Joakim Noah, as Tagy-woo.

For many of us of another generation, you always remember where you were on Nov. 22.
For many in the NBA, even like LeBron James, they remember where they were this past Nov. 22 when Derrick Rose in Portland suffered his second severe knee injury in less than two years.

Rose conducted his first media conference since his knee injury Nov. 22 in Portland that will keep Rose out the rest of the 2013-14 regular season and playoffs,
Rose’s surgery Nov. 25 was said to have gone well and after an …
