Here's what the Bulls big man had to say about his former coach, translated by the Chicago Tribune:

"Coach Thibodeau, (I) want to thank your trust and support this season," Gasol wrote. "I am sure that his departure was a very difficult decision for the organization of the Bulls, but I am convinced that they have a solid plan for the success of the franchise. We all have high expectations for the coming season and will do anything to bring the ring to Chicago. Go Bulls!"

In his only season with Thibodeau, Gasol averaged 18.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks, which helped him earn his fifth career All-Star appearance.
