Lats season:

Gibson- 7.1ppg/5.7rpg/1.3blks in 22mpg (2nd season)
Davis- 7.7ppg/7.1rpg/1blk in 24mpg (Rookie)

IMO you also can't discount him missing training camp and the first 5 weeks of the season at all. And Gibson's stats were mostly vs opponents bench players.
I'm sorry but I have to add to this ridiculous post.

How many games did Chicago win?

Don't Davis' stats also come against bench players?

Don't underestimate Gibson...
