Ibaka Rejects Drummond & Wags The Finger; Later Drummond Posterizes Ibaka

Serge Ibaka, Andre Drummond

This was a story of hubris, reprisal and the ultimate futility of one-on-one battles in a game of five players per side.

Frankly, we’re surprised it took just this long for the ill-fated tandem to endure more time-honored disharmony. As the reigning MVP calls for the ball at the top of the key, watch the Thunder’s guard – note the lack of “point” – lose control of the ball before airmailing a contested jumper. Read More »
