Remember that amusing clip back in 2014 with Kevin Durant standing behind the 3-point line for 5 seconds with his hands up and then eventually giving up as Russell Westbrook dribbled and dribbled and dribbled before shooting an airball? Or that clip from the same month, when Dion Waiters jumped up and down begging LeBron for the ball?
On Wednesday, we had a similar situation with Serge Ibaka and the stars (KD, Westbrook & Waiters) of the two clips above. Serge jumped up and down and waived his hands for 11 seconds before giving up and watching the play end with a bad pass by Westbrook to Waiters.
Now Ibaka knows how these guys felt.
