Who is Serge Ibaka? And Why is Trashing LeBron?

What is this guy thinking?   Does he really want to see LeBron James playing with yet another chip on his shoulder?   Did he see the Boston series?  

Serge needs to take a chill pill and shut the f*%k up!

Tonight....look for King James to shut Mr. Durant down.

James may not score 40 tonight......but Durant won't either.

Serge Ibaka became the first player to talk smack in the NBA Finals, telling Hoopworld's Alex Kennedy last night, "LeBron is not a good defender."
 His full explanation:
"He can play defense for 2-3 minutes but not 48 minutes. LeBron can’t play [Durant] one-on-one."

LeBron is widely regarded as the best wing defender in the league (he ranks #8 in the league in defensive efficiency).

In Game 3, LeBron played great D on Durant down the stretch — pushing him away from where he wanted to go on the court and holding him to 4 points on 2 of 6 shooting.
During the Eastern Conference Finals, he spent time defender Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, and Paul Pierce all in one game.

Being a great defender is what makes LeBron one of the most special players we've ever seen.

But Ibaka — who has been completely shredded by Shane Battier so far — begs to differ.
The series so far as been tame as far as trash talk and chippiness goes, but the pieces are definitely in place for a heated rivalry to bloom.

We'll see if LeBron and Co. take the bait.
