“I definitely don’t know nothing about it,” Ibaka told NBCSports.com confidently, in English through his usually thick accent. “I’m a player like him, so we just go play. That’s the kind of question you need to ask the (general) manager.” Ibaka went on to say he liked playing with Martin, and would welcome him back if the Thunder are willing and able to re-sign him this summer. “He’s a good guy,” Ibaka said. “He was a good fit for us.” NBCSports.com

Is the Eurobasket in your plans? Serge Ibaka: As of now I'm on vacation and haven't thought about it. Is there any objection about it coming from your team. Serge: They have told me something (about it) because I've had three years with no rest. Will it be your call? Serge Ibaka: Yes, but no decision yet. We can talk about it moving forward. I love playing with the National Team because I've had the best moments of my career there. It was always a dream and I've had a good time there. Mundo Deportivo

A noticeable feature of all of the neighborhoods that Ibaka traversed is that besides the devastating wreckage, families made sure to display their Thunder pride with flags, t-shirts and other memorabilia. Just as the community has supported one another with endless donations and a flood of volunteers, Oklahoma has rallied around the Thunder as a common signifier of their unity and strength as a whole. “It’s amazing how people really like the team and support the team,” Ibaka said. “When they have bad moments and hard moments, they show some love for the team.” NBA.com

A day after Kevin Durant said Serge Ibaka's shooting struggles were all in his mind, Ibaka admitted that his confidence is waning. “Yeah,” Ibaka said. “It's normal, man. It's normal. A little bit. But that does not mean my confidence is way down because after all the shots I missed, after the (missed) dunk, I was still playing defense. I wanted to still help my teammates. I wanted to still try to be aggressive. But it's normal like he said. Of course, that happens to everybody.” Oklahoman

Ibaka suggested his shots in this series might be too easy. “Most of the time when you're open that's when it's tough to make shots because you try to get some different focus than normally when some guys try to contest your shots,” Ibaka said. “So that's happened.” Oklahoman

Some have said you and Serge have been asked to play a different role than you have been all year and it takes a little while to adjust to it. Kevin Martin: “Yeah, but we're fine. That's no excuse for us right now. We just have to do what we're supposed to do.” Oklahoman
