Ibaka does what Ibaka do

Serge Ibaka, whose draft rights are held by the Thunder after the team selected him with the 24th overall pick in this year’s draft, showed off his athleticism today in a dunk contest over in Spain.

I honestly can’t understand a thing in this video, but judging by the trophy he’s presented with at the beginning of the video and the check he’s holding at the end it’s safe to say he won the thing.

Ibaka, you’ll recall, recently signed a three-year deal over in Spain but has buyout clauses that can bring him over whenever the Thunder brass feels he’s ready. Ibaka just turned 19 on Sept. 18, and you’ll see here that Thunder GM Sam Presti (actually his title was still Seattle SuperSonics GM back then) likes the idea of leaving the youngster overseas to develop for a few years.
