Kirk Earlywine on Gibson: "It's been a two-year process to get Gary Gibson to talk and communicate more, not only on the floor, but while he's on the sideline and in practice. He has to be more vocal in terms of helping the other players, especially on the defensive end of the floor. Gary is a very smart player and recognizes things very quickly. But he keeps it to himself, and that's not a good habit for a guard."
