Serge Ibaka on Kawhi Leonard: "What you see on TV, that's when he's working. He's a nice guy, a normal guy like everybody else."

Kawhi Leonard

Things are looking good for the only Canadian team in the NBA. Toronto Raptors are having a great season so far, and it seems the chemistry among the teammates is on a high level.

Serge Ibaka is one of the guys who recently shared his thoughts about the Raptors and what keeps them going. He was already a member of an OKC team that was competing for championship several years in a row, so he recognizes the value this Raptors team has.

Even though it was a team success, Ibaka is excited about Kawhi and believe he is still not at 100 percent.

Man, that boy ... I don't even think he's 100 percent yet. I just can't wait to see him at 100 percent. It's going to be scary. He gives us a lot on both ends of the floor.

Serge is even thinking about of inviting Kawhi to his show "How Hungry Are You?" to display a different side to Kawhi rather than the one that was presented in the media lately.

I spoke with him about wanting to get him on my show so people can see his different side. I told him a lot of kids love him. When they see him, they think about the (media day) laugh or the serious face, but actually, he has different personalities. What you see on TV, that's when he's working. He's a nice guy, a normal guy like everybody else. We talk about funny stuff and laugh. I want him on my show so kids can see a different side of him. He agreed with me and said he would love to do it. Now it's about timing. The season started so we're busier working.

For those of you who are not following Serge much these days, he started his show on YouTube where he invites different guests to eat unpredictable meals. The concept of the show is outstanding, and it would be amazing to see Kawhi in that kind of situation.

You may not eat those types of foods, but a lot of people somewhere eat those types of food. It's food, man. One thing I love about my show is the guests, no matter the food, they always try it. It shows me the value of respecting every food from every country. When people see a food from their country on my show, they get happy. I try to mix (food) from different parts of the world
