Lol @ everybody acting like Ibaka was some type of soldier or something in the Congo civil war. That war actually ended when Ibaka was 12 years old. He then lived in Spain for his teenage years and was drafted to the NBA at 18. He was a child during the war and then left to Spain when the war was over.

Assuming Ibaka is some sort of guerilla warfare fighter is like assuming every player from Chicago or LA is a hardcore gang banger. It's just stupid.

It is, but assuming this "Metta would whoop dat muhfuggin' ass" does not make you look smarter.

In fact in this video, after refusing fighting with Wallace, crazy mad Artest hits a fan in the face with enough time to prepare his punch. The fan, not a very good fighter apparently, smaller and not looking especially in shape, doesn't look really hurt and only falls because someone else pushes him, standing up immediately afterwards to fight back (not really scared about what Crazy Artest did to him)ů what the hell makes you think an older, slower and weaker Artest would whoop Ibaka's ass???

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSqMSEC8MCw (2:30)

Is this what makes people think Artest is an excellent boxer??? He has time to prepare his attacking combo, he lunches 3 punches but only strike once and that's his first punch (normally you end combos stronger than you start them, first punches are suppose to give you the distance and distract your opponent while last ones are suppose to knock him out).

According to Ibaka himself, his family fled their house and found refuge in his grandma's house in a small remote town far from most of the conflicts.

Ibaka would win in boxing, not in mma or a street fight. Artest would bite significant pieces out of Ibaka's arm & leg tissue in a street fight. In MMA, Artest's Body/torso weight advantage would drastically outmatch Ibaka's superior shoulder strength.

They think this is a good representation of who Ibaka was during the war:


Quote:
Ibaka’s family moved north to the small town of Ouessoe to live with their Grandmother in a house without electricity or running water. Ibaka remained there for nearly four years, living in adverse conditions. Ibaka, unlike many of his less fortunate fellow countrymen, found refuge in the game of basketball. He spent his days in school and his free time shooting hoops with friends.

“It was something that we loved so much we didn’t care about how we did it as long as we could play the game,” said Ibaka about playing basketball.




Look at the uninformed OKC homers:

Ibaka’s mother died of natural causes when he was 8. (before the war)
