By now, you've all seen the Serge Ibaka advertisement for his new patent pending product, "I-Blocka-Yo-B@lls!" line of men's protective-wear. If by some miracle you haven't, here it is in full animated gif-ing glory.
When Kobe Bryant was asked how he would have reacted had Ibaka done such a thing to him, this was his response, per Royce Young at CBS Sports:
"I probably would have smacked him in the mouth," Kobe told reporters Monday, via the L.A. Daily News.
That's assuming Bryant was able to stand after taking a shot to a sensitive area.
"I would've dealt with the pain afterwards," Kobe said.
Clearly, Kobe has taken a cue from fellow celeb Neil Diamond:
Said Dwight Howard, who could find himself battling Ibaka on Tuesday night if the league doesn't hand down a suspension: "You gotta wear a cup."
"He goes hard," Howard said. "Balls out. Serge Ibaka."
Balls out, indeed. Or perhaps, keep them in the barn door and out of the Serge Protector's way.
