Serge Ibaka has been disappointing
Speaking of frustrating shot-blockers, Serge Ibaka is going to turn it around soon, right? I wish I could be optimistic here, but Ibaka’s value is plummeting fast. On Sunday, Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry referred to Ibaka as a defensive “liability,” which is not a good sign for a guy known first and foremost for his defense. Meanwhile, Ibaka (6.9 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 2.2 bpg) is evenly splitting minutes with Nick Collison, and is likely going to need an injury to Collison in order to approach what he did last year.
