Pau Gasol thanked fired Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.

He should.

The 34-year-old power forward had a renaissance of sorts last season under Thibodeau, grabbing a career-high 11.8 rebounds and posting his best offensive numbers (18.5 ppg) in four seasons.

On his blog, Gasol wrote:

“I want to thank Coach Thibodeau for his trust and support this season. I am sure his dismissal was a difficult decision for the Bulls organization to make, but I am confident they have a solid plan to ensure the continued success of the franchise. We all have extremely high expectations for the team next season and we will do whatever it takes to bring a championship back to Chicago. Go Bulls!”
