Unfortunately for Gary Neal, Air Congo decided to land directly on his dome shortly after takeoff:

The first thing I thought was:this guy is the new Ben Wallace
Dont quite see the comparison @max…Serge is a legit 7 ft
he’s also got a nice face-up jumper…so again the wallace comparison is a little iffy
Well he is listed at 6 10′ on nba.com,so legit 7ft is maybe not really true.But I agree on the off end he is more talented.But the way he grabed the board and finished the alley-oop reminds me of Ben Wallace better years,and his blocks as well.
Maybe it’s just me as a Pistons fan,but why do you think Ben Wallace is a bad comparison?I agree,Ibaka is not as undersized as Big Ben,but still not a legit 7 footer.He might be alot better offensivly,but his biggest strenghts are defending and rebounding.I watched him vs the Lakers in the playoffs and he did a nice job I think.
Air Congo sounds like a cool nick name. Nba already got Congo Cash.
Ben Wallace v2.0 fo’sho.
Air Congo it is! Great Nickname
