Backup big man Taj Gibson smiled at the possibility he would bring the Bulls their second individual honor this month.

And then he explained why he probably won’t win the Sixth Man of the Year award when it’s announced in the next 10 days or so. Center Joakim Noah was named defensive player of the year Monday.

 “It would be great,” Gibson said Tuesday before Game 2 against the Wizards. “I don’t even think I’m going to win it, to tell you the truth.”

 “I like [the Spurs’ Manu] Ginobili, and I like [the Clippers’ Jamal] Crawford,” Gibson said.
