Thunder’s Ibaka responds to draft prospect wanting to dunk on him
Serge Ibaka missed the last part of the NBA season, but rookie-to-be Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is ready for the Oklahoma City forward to return.
Because Hollis-Jefferson wants to dunk on Ibaka. Yeah, really.
"I don’t know if I should say this, because he might be, like looking for me if I come down the paint," Hollis-Jefferson said to The Oklahoman while at the NBA Draft Combine. "But I know Serge Ibaka is a big blocked-shot dude. So if I can get him, I’m good.
"Serge Ibaka. I’m coming for you, baby."
Now, Hollis-Jefferson was laughing when he said it and added, "It’ll just be good if I can get one on him."
Ibaka took the news and turned it around on Hollis-Jefferson with this tweet:
Lol I will be waiting for you young fella! Good luck in the draft! https://t.co/wZehxXL2Ca

The Thunder have a 98 percent chance of getting the No. 14 pick in the draft. Hollis-Jefferson is not projected as one of the top 14 picks in some mock drafts.
