When you listen to Serge Ibaka talk, he goes from likable Thunder player to maybe the MOST likable. He’s so honest, funny and straightforward. Plus his voice doesn’t really fit with how he looks and plays. It’s just all so great.
The NBA is putting out some getting-to-know-you videos about each contestant and the KD-Serge video doesn’t disappoint. The best part if with Ibaka watching some old footage when KD walks in and Serge says, “Kevin, you see that Kevin?” I want that to be my ringtone.
The way Ibaka “finds out” about being in the dunk contest is a bit lame, but regardless, nice. (I love that KD is his coach. You know that Durant made that call. The team is so family focused and no way KD was letting his guy have someone other than a brother coach him. Love that.)
Ibaka talks about the Air Congo and KD even says something about getting some t-shirts made. I guess now we know why Ibaka’s agency told us to stop making our Air Congo shirts.
