Serge Ibaka: LeBron James Is Not A Good Defender

Yes, you read the headline correctly — Serge Ibaka did say that LeBron James is not a good defender.

From the Palm Beach Post, via Yahoo! Sports:

“LeBron is not a good defender,” Ibaka said about the player who received the most votes for the league’s all-defensive team, which is selected by the coaches.

“He can play defense for two to three minutes but not 48 minutes.” […]

“LeBron can’t play (Durant) one-on-one,” Ibaka said. “They’re playing good defense like a team.”

Yahoo! was quick to remind everyone that Kevin Durant only scored four points in the fourth quarter of Game 3, when James was guarding him. Ibaka also said that being down 2-1 in the Finals is a good time to talk recklessly.

LeBron responded to Ibaka’s statement: “I don’t really care what he says. It’s stupid.”

It is stupid, you’re right, LeBron.

Love him or hate him, he is one of the best — if not the best — individual defender at his position, which could be any of the five on the court. I’ve seen LeBron on Dwight in the post, it’s possible. Ibaka needs to keep his mouth shut and focus on getting another win.
