Great work by Royce Young at DailyThunder creating this clip of Serge Ibaka’s ally-oop slam against the Spurs.  It seems like every game Ibaka is showing us one or two more things that are exciting to behold.

Watch this play develop a couple times.  The backup PG Eric Maynor is running the break (after an Ibaka rebound) , and Ibaka is originally trailing Maynor and four Spurs defenders.  As he glides by behind the Spurs’ transition defense, he calls for the ball and in two long strides elevates over Richard Jefferson’s head and flushes it with one hand.  Just a beautiful example of why the NBA is like nothing else.

Air Congo? Sure, why not.
