Serge Ibaka 28 Points Full Highlights (2/12/2020)

Despite Serge Ibaka’s heroic 28-point performance (a performance that featured more points than ANY he had during his time in OKC, by the way), the Raptors lost, ending their winning streak at 15 games. Good. I’m going to sound like a butthurt Bucks fan, and maybe I am a little butthurt, but they (and their…

Serge Ibaka 22 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2020)

Serge Ibaka, in his 11th season, is putting up more PPG per game than he ever has. It feels like he should be super old at this point, but he’s only 30, so the fact that he is scoring at a career-high rate is not wholly surprising. 30 is still considered by most to be…

Serge Ibaka 30 Points Full Highlights (2/5/2020)

Since I feel that it will be brought up in the comment section of this video, I will once offer up my personal philosophy surrounding the concept of a “game winner”. Given that most users of the internet struggle to extract meaning from text in paragraph format, I will reformat my philosophy as a list…

Serge Ibaka 21 Points Full Highlights (1/31/2020)

Serge Ibaka made NBA history in this game by apparently becoming the first player to make 500 three-pointers in their career while also blocking 1,500 shots. That combo of skills has been so rare over the history of the NBA that no other player had done it even though those aren’t world-beating numbers when taken…

Serge Ibaka 24 Points Full Highlights (1/28/2020)

Since the denizens of the internetubes at large seem to care way more about Serge Ibaka the Chef than Serge Ibaka the Basketball Player, I’ve got an idea for that cooking show of his that will launch his popularity from “niche” to “worldwide”: Bake the championship ring into brownies. And I’m not just talking about…

Serge Ibaka 21 Points Full Highlights (1/12/2020)

Here’s a thought experiment for you: try to imagine any on-court action performed by Serge Ibaka while he was in Orlando. This one’s tough, so I’ll give you some time. Think REALLY hard. Close your eyes, picture Ibaka, and then place a Magic jersey on him. That might help jog your memory. I’ll be back…

Serge Ibaka 23 Points Full Highlights (1/8/2020)

Not shown in this video: Serge Ibaka committing an away-from-the-play foul on an inbound with seventeen seconds left and the Raptors only up by one. Terry Rozier splashed the free throw and the Hornets kept possession, basically guaranteeing that the game would at least go to overtime if not end in a Hornets victory. Ibaka’s…

Serge Ibaka 21 Points Full Highlights (1/4/2020)

Ever since Stephen Jackson made one dumbass tweet a while back, I’ve been pronouncing Serge Ibaka’s name incorrectly in my head: “Serg Aybaka”. When I do have occasion to say his name out loud, I have to fight the urge to pronounce it wrong. One day I’ll screw up and everybody will think I’m a…
