Default Re: Serge Ibaka's potential

He's not going to be a 15-17 PPG scorer anytime soon, either, as long as there's 3 better established scorers than him. But he's giving us 13 PPG on good efficiency as the 4th option this year, and I'm fine with that. He will occasionally have a 20+ point game and he's got 15-19 point games littered throughout the season.

However, he's still got some holes in his game. He needs to be a better and more consistent rebounder. Some games he realizes he's an athletic freak, goes to work on the offensive glass, and finishes the game with 10+ boards. Other nights he just sort of disappears, isn't nearly assertive enough using his athleticism, and finishes with 5-7 rebounds. It's more of a mental thing than talent thing for the most part. And yes, his on-ball/man defense needs work. It's better this year (which isn't saying a whole lot) but he's still wildly inconsistent.

If Martin leaves after this year, then I can see him increasing his scoring up to 15 PPG, and he'll be a 15/9/3 player on 55%+ shooting.

Do you see any scenario where they maybe trade Ibaka if things go pear shaped in the playoffs?

No, not really. Especially since they signed him before Harden, and ultimately traded Harden. Presti will probably trade younger pieces and assets before he trades Ibaka. He could probably package one or both of Lamb, PJ3, and Toronto's first round pick for a solid scoring big man.

He has been close to 5blcks per 36? Do you really think he coulnt do it in 40 minutes a game?

That would be an insane if he average 5 blocks but per 36 does not take into account many factors one being fatigue and also foul trouble. Who was the last person to average 5 blocks a game?
