Jimmy Butler on Taj Gibson: "Taj was amazing to me all the years that I've been here. One thing you could count on Taj, he was coming in bright spirited every day. He isn't emotional as I am on a day to day basis. Any day that anybody walked in pissed off or sad or whatever it may be, all you got to do is look at Taj, man. Taj is always smiling. That's what we're going to miss. He did all the little things for us and played extremely hard. But I think the person that he was -- that's what's going to be missed. Basketball is basketball, that's forever going to be my guy from Fort Greene, Brooklyn."
