VIDEO: Serge Ibaka's big block and alley-oop dunk against Argentina

By James Herbert | NBA writer

Serge Ibaka told Bleacher Report's Jared Zwerling about a month ago that he was "not 100 percent yet," and that he was "only playing with really one leg when I returned" from a calf injury in the Western Conference finals. Now playing for the Spanish national team, it looks like the Oklahoma City Thunder big man looks like himself:

Yep, that's Ibaka blocking a layup from Argentina's Andres Nocioni, then sprinting to finish an alley-oop from Ricky Rubio. There isn't a long list of guys who can do that like him. It's pretty fun to see, and a little bit scary if you're Team USA. At full strength, Ibaka and Marc Gasol present quite the challenge on the inside. And, oh yeah, they have Pau Gasol as well.

Also, it's kind of funny that the commentator calls him "Air Congo" even when he's playing for Spain.

The 2014 FIBA World Cup starts on Saturday.
