Ibaka is a weaker man to man defender. his strong point is his help defense.

I am a big Ibaka fan, but I think Collison will do a better job on Dirk. Ibaka has a tremendous defensive skills and is a freak but sometimes makes mistakes. Especially when he try to block shots and allows easy passes. Collison is more experienced and is a very smart defender and currently can do better in difficult situations. And defend Dirk in a conference finals is perhaps too much responsibility. Still does not mean that Ibaka can not be one of the best defensive players in the league, in fact it already is.

Its simple. Get Ibaka off balance and Dirk will drain them off balance jumpers

Fade away is unguardable, but he should do as well as anyone i would think. He has the right skillset/size

No.

Defense on him consists largely of ball denial and not letting him establish position. Once Dirk has you on an island all you can do is stay on your feet and be physical. Even putting a hand up is borderline futile.

You're annoying dude.

Ibaka is a solid defender but he couldn't even stop Randolph's jumpshot what makes you think he can stop Dirk.

Dirk is basically unstoppable if he has it going

ignore the O.P. He is a big laker fan and huge kobe-******ger. So it is naturally that he would want the thunders to beat the mavs and lock up dirk.

BTW, ibaka is not going to lock up dirk... no fking way.

acutally ibaka has been one of the worst player to defend dirk. dirk has historically owned ibaka, they need to put durant on dirk.

I think they should let there be some white on white crime....start Collison and let him cover Dirk. After the tissue soft Gasol guarded him, Collison gonna feel like sandpaper.

I think Dirk will score 20 points in the first quarter alone with Ibaka guarding him.

Exactly. Been saying that. Plus, if Ibaka guards Nowitzki, they will run that murderous high screen roll until OKC changes the matchup.

Dirk I think would have had a tougher time with the Grizzles. All those small quick defenders upsetting his rhythm and stealing the ball. And more importantly, Ibaka won't make Dirk work defensively to the extent that Randolph would have. Neither Ibaka nor Perkins are really big scoring threats, leaving lots of energy for Dirk and Chandler.
