It is an understatement to say that Serge Ibaka has been playing well. He has exceeded everyone’s expectations this year and has been a difference-maker on many occasions for the Toronto Raptors. With his contract expiring at the end of the season, he has shown a strong interest in wanting to stay in Toronto, but the feeling shouldn’t be mutual.
Why? Well for starters, the Toronto Raptors aren’t even a that great a team when Ibaka is a starter in place of Marc Gasol. They seem to play off Ibaka more than they should when he is on, resulting in fewer threes and more mid-range shots.
