Besides being one of the most consistent and highly talented African NBA players out there, Serge Ibaka also certainly knows how to express himself.

In a post-game interview after their game 1 playoff victory over the Washington Wizards, the Congolese born Toronto Raptors star showcased his multilingual prowess by effortlessly answering three questions in three different languages; English, French and Spanish.

Take a look at the interview below:

Born in Congo, Brazzaville to two professional basketball players, Ibaka began his basketball career in 2008 with Spanish team CB L’Hospitlet. He eventually made it to the NBA in 2008 after being drafted by the Seattle Supersonics making him the first player from the Republic of Congo to be selected in a draft.

He has also played for the Oklahoma City Thunder and Orlando Magic and is a member of the Spanish national basketball team.

Wishing Serge the best of luck in the playoffs!
