Default Serge Ibaka - What the hell happened to this guy?

Horrible tonight, proven overrated defender, can't rebound, can't create for himself or others, pretty much just a stretch 4 at this point.

Shame, I remember around 2012 - 2013 I thought this guy had potential to be a top 5 big man in the game, a few years later he is just a solid role player. Should OKC trade him for a wing who can defend and shoot??

Welcome to 2 years ago

He is a better Perkins on offense because he can hit the wideopen jumpers Russ and KD create for him. Cant handle ball, cant pass, no postgame, turns it over, no offensive boards etc.

On defense he isnt even a top 3 player on the team and OKC protects the rim better when KD or Adams are in the paint than Scrubaka. He gets his @zz destroyed man to man by any half decent offensive PF

hes always been a role player always will be. Top 20 PF still a decent player

I remember some fans on an OKC site joking about how this guy is older than his official age. But they weren't totally joking and seriously implying it. Something about how information from the country in africa where he is from can't be trusted.

dude could be closer to 30 than we think right now. seriously.

he used to be a lot better. he can't rebound or finish, and he was never really the most mobile defender. below average player now.

Thinking it over, perhaps he was never that good. I used to think he was a great bigman but now i think the dude got overrated with his flashy blocks.

bad postmoves
clumsy feet
bad man to man defense
falls easily for the pump fake
cant shoot in a defenders face
terrible rebounder

it creates bad matchups.. the man was guarded by livingston.. what a joke lol

The amount of miss rotations he had tonight in defense is unacceptable for such a good shotblocker. Needs to pay more attention on working on that instead of extending his range.

He turned into a spot up shooter with a 14 inch dick.

He's always been overrated. Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki routinely embarrassed Ibaka in the postseason.

He serves little to no purpose anymore. He's been in the league for how many years now and has no semblance of a post game whatsoever. Has not developed himself as a basketball player at all the last 2 or 3 years, he's remained stagnant unless it involves him shooting 3s.

I don't understand why this guy is such a bad rebounder. KD and WB probably averages more rebounds than him

i dont know what happend to him, but he def. regressed from 2011-2013, where he was just a very good 2-way-guy.

but on the other hand: he is playing with WB and KD who both shooting like 20-25 times a game. he has to do the best with what they give him

he was never a great one on one defender, he was a great weakside blocker. in this new era he guards stretch 4's and is out on the perimeter which negates his best defensive attribute. on offense he's very hit or miss with his shot, if he has it going he can easily drop 18 points all from jumpers but it's more likely that he's going to brick them.

he's a good starter and someone worth having on your team but he's not suited to an up-tempo style of play.

and all the bigs who don't have a post game are being exposed by small-ball lineups. I think one day in the future the post game will come back but it probably wont be for a while.

but here's what happened & ibaka never recovered.



he's been living in that fear ever since
