“LeBron is not a good defender,” Ibaka said about the player who received the most votes for the league’s all-defensive team, which is selected by the coaches.

“He can play defense for two to three minutes but not 48 minutes.”

Really? Sour grapes or does he just not respect Lebrons D?

Thats funny. Lebron is slightly overrated defensively but Serge is far more overrated. 2nd in DPOY voting? What a joke.... Best shot blocker in the league but the dude falls for every pump fake.:facepalm:

I think they both are underrated defenders...Serge is a special shot blocker in every sense of the word from a timing, metality, willigness, etc. He has certaintly gotten better with his on ball defense but the consistency isnt there yet, but hey he is 22.

Lebron is a good defender, a smart defender but i think he is overrated in the sense that people confuse versatile D with great D. He's able to guard 4 positions because he's the greatest athlete that any of us have every seen physically but to say he's an elite defender is a discredit to the guys that do it for their teams night in and night out as their calling card. Is he good to very good? yes, his defense in this series switching to different guys and funneling guys into the help of Bosh has been very good.

All in all Serge just needs to be quiet and play however lol

Lol Ibaka is a horrible man to man defender, great help defender but vastly over rated

Serge is one of my favorite players, but really? If Lebron plays d for 3 minutes and takes a break, it's bc he's doing everything else for the heat also. serge is just sounding like a jealous hater

There is no shame in not being able to shut down Durant for 48 minutes. It seems Ibaka has a case of sour grapes.

Kevin Durant is probably so angry at Serge Ibaka right about now.

Who cares about the comment it's silly. The only thing this continues to show is the Thunder's lack of experience and maturity continue to show throughout the series

bad move Serge. Here come a quadruple double from Lebron lol

blocks are not everything on D. I mean in watching almost every knicks game last year i saw amare have 2 or 3 blocks a game at certain points, does that make him a good defender?? (certainly not lol). Lebron is up there in defense. Easily good enough to make all defensive team. Ive seen him lock down good players a ton of times.

Who has more of an impact defensively? LeBron on KD/Perkins/Harden for 40 minutes a game? Or Ibaka playing help D 25 minutes a game. . . GTFO

Lebron's next target - Ibaka

Stupid comment by Serge but if LeBron is going to try and attack Serge than this is a good psychological move by the Thunder. I'd rather him go at Serge than KD who has gotten himself in foul trouble due to Bron's aggresiveness if I were OKC.
