Serge Ibaka disses LeBron's 'D'
Serge Ibaka had some big trash talk for LeBron James, arguably the league's best defender:
Step up your game.
Ibaka told the Palm Beach Post's Tom D'Angelo that "LeBron is not a good defender."
Can he play tight defense in spurts? Sure, Ibaka told D'Angelo, "but not [for] 48 minutes."
Ibaka took it a step further, too, saying that teammate Kevin Durant wouldn't have a problem going one-on-one with LBJ.
"LeBron can't play [Durant] one-on-one," Ibaka said.
Both James and Ibaka were named to the All-Defensive 1st Team.
