    Serge Ibaka Oklahoma City Thunder

    Considering Congo native Serge Ibaka was the third youngest of his parents 18 children, him being a very attractive and successful professional basketball player is all the more impressive. I feel like Id be so tired by the time I got to the 15th kid, Id probably just kick it into autopilot and coast. Maybe get a St. Bernard to handle the heavy lifting. Thats what the absentee parents did in Peter Pan, and those kids turned out just swell. Sorry, this has gotten a little off track. So to summarize, Serge Ibaka is handsome, and its definitely a good thing I dont have kids.
