Serge Ibaka: We should be proud of this win

Serge Ibaka’s migration away from the basket

The once fierce defender has become a shooter over the years, and it appears to be getting worse. The trade that sent Serge Ibaka to the Orlando Magic wasn’t exactly well received at the time, but general Manager Rob Hennigan was resolute that the Congolese big man would fill a huge hole on the team. “Serge’s ability to protect the basket, his ability to defend in a very versatile way, we feel, is really going to help fortify a major weakness for us”, said Hennigan at Ibaka’s formal introduction to fans. Hennigan traded for the player once called Iblocka, the shot-swatting...

Orlando Magic 119, OKC Thunder 117: Serge Ibaka’s career night leads Orlando

Serge Ibaka was a force on offense and defense, and they needed every bit of his career-high 31 points to beat Oklahoma City.

Elfrid Payton was huge throughout the game as well, including in the critical,...

Orlando finds some hidden lineup magic off the bench

Do the Magic’s best lineups rely on four bench players? A common source of offseason discussion concerned how Orlando would balance their rotation and navigate the mishmashed roster they’d composed during their busy summer. How were they going to fit Nikola Vucevic, Serge Ibaka, and Bismack Biyombo on the court at the same time? Where does Aaron Gordon fit into the equation?
