While many people might be surprised with Serge Ibaka's quality jump shot and high percentage offense, I am not . As a matter of fact, as he entered the league, I had predicted that he could pattern his game along Akeem Olajuwon since I had " seen" that he possessed , even back in Spain, raw offensive abilities. The only reason why he is beginning to showcase his full range of shooting arsenal is due to the departure of Harden. He came in the league playing with 3 majors quality offensive players, to get minutes, he had to create a " niche"; which he managed with his defense and shot blocking. But he has always been a very skilled offensive guy with a pretty stroke; and I think he definitively spend a summer with Hakeem in order to maximize his abilities.
