It was a dunk that got Oklahoma City Thunder’s Serge Ibaka off his seat and dancing. It got the crowd on its feet and now there is a reward on the table.
Nathan Schall, who spent last season at the Manchester Giants sent the crowd into a frenzy with a dunk along the baseline on an opponent at the NBA 3X event at the Etihad Stadium, home to football side Manchester City.
The video, originally taken by Rob Jeffries has gone viral over YouTube and the Spanish international has taken to Twitter to invite the Giants player to the Thunder’s pre-season game at the Manchester Evening News Arena against the Philadelphia 76ers.

It didn’t take Schall long to answer Ibaka’s invite either.
