The King didn’t take too kindly to Serge Ibaka assertion that he isn’t a very good defensive player.
Here is what he had to say.
“I don’t really care what he says, he’s stupid,” James said. “Everyone says something to me every series, then (the media) tries to get a quote. It’s stupid.”
“For me as a defender, I just try to make plays and try to keep my body in front of a great player,” James said. “First of all, I’m not playing 48 minutes, and Kevin’s not playing 48 minutes. I’m not guarding him for 48 minutes. When I’m on him, I’m just trying to make it tough for him to make shots, which he’s going to make.”
I agree with Lebron, but I also think the Thunder are playing soft and letting Lebron and Wade off the hook with soft fouls and defense in the paint.
Ibaka should back up his words and put Lebron on his butt next time he comes into the lane, if someone on the Thunder doesn’t they will have a lot of time in the summer to whine about Bron’s defense while he is shining his ring.
