What is up with the Oklahoma City Thunder? Arguably the best team in the West yet they find themselves on the receiving end of more soul crushing dunks this season than any other squad in the league. Kendrick Perkins already has his victim card courtesy of Blake Griffin and last night, Serge Ibaka got his punched by Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks.

Give the Thunder credit, they will challenge every high flyer coming to the rim to at least get a block or cause an erratic shot to go up. Last night proved otherwise for the NBA’s block leader as Smith channeled his dunk contest memories by rising around Ibaka and stuffing it one handed in his face. Lord, imagine him in an All-Star Game with a lob loving point guard.
