Issues existed between Serge Ibaka and the Thunder, according to multiple reports.
A team that was one win away from the NBA Finals had internal issues with one of their stars, Ibaka. The Thunder promised him a “larger role” on the offensive side of the ball but that did not seem to happen. Although on the surface it seemed as though Ibaka was close with Durant and Westbrook, ESPN’s Royce Young wrote that they were never really close, stating that the two superstars “were often frustrated with Ibaka’s mental mistakes.” Under Frank Vogel, Ibaka hopes to prove that he deserved a bigger role. He could go back to being an early round asset in fantasy leagues.
