Serge Ibaka has yet to play a single game for the Orlando Magic, but he already feels it’s the right place for him. Orlando traded away Victor Oladipo and others in a deal to land Ibaka from the Oklahoma City Thunder. Ibaka is one of the most athletic big men and best paint defenders in the game.
NBC Sports reports Ibaka wants to remain with the Magic for the rest of his career.
“I’m looking to stay here to play forever — for [as] many, many years as possible. One of the things I learned playing on a good team is when the team wins, when you make the playoffs, everybody looks good. So that’s what will be my focus right now, because if we win and make the playoffs, everything will take care of itself.”
Ibaka will play a huge role in Orlando’s success this season.
