With NBA training camps opening this week, there are plenty of new faces to learn, not only for the fans and media but for the players, too.
As unbelievable as it may sound, Thunder forward Serge Ibaka apparently has never heard of teammate Mitch McGary, a first-round pick.
Ibaka was asked if he's had a chance to play with Mitch McGary. "Mitch McGary? Mitch McGary... McGary?" Straight up didn't know who he was.— Royce Young (@royceyoung) September 29, 2014
The saddest part of when Ibaka was asked about McGary was a few media members trying to help him out. "Draft pick, big guy..."— Royce Young (@royceyoung) September 29, 2014
To be fair, Ibaka said he's only been in Oklahoma for two days, and McGary only appeared in eight games for Michigan last season, so it's not like he was the biggest name in college basketball. But still, does he not follow his team's offseason moves? Is he going to be upset when he doesn't see Derek Fisher at practice?
