Serge Ibaka nationalized by Spain, ready to play European championship
 
The AP reports: Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka has been granted Spanish nationality on Friday, clearing the way for him to help Spain defend its European championship this summer. “Spain is a country that has given me a lot,” Ibaka said after Spain’s Council of Ministers approved his petition for nationality. “It will be an honor to give Spain back all that it has given me on the court.”

Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka, Felipe Reyes, and Victor Claver...athleticism, shot blocking, low post play, rebounding, and perimeter shooting. Wow. Imagine if they had Fran Vazquez too.

Best frontline in the world after the US.

This hurts Greece's chances of winnign so it must have been accomplished via cheating.

If you knew anything at all about international basketball, you'd know that all of Greece's last 247,000 losses came when the referees were paid off by other teams. In fair games, Greece is 5-15 with all 15 losses coming when we lost on purpose as a strategical plan.

Euroleague is serious. No room for sarcasm like NBA. That's a partial ban. You still have potential.
