OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Serge Ibaka is being hailed as hero after springing into action in a mall parking lot.

A fellow Oklahoman who goes by Grant said he was biking home from Penn Square Mall and ending up eating pavement before he even got out of the parking lot.

According to TMZ.com, a Good Samaritan came to Grant’s rescue when he chipped his tooth and cut open his chin.

That do-gooder was none other than Serge Ibaka.

Grant said the NBA star took him inside, got him some water and helped clean his wounds.

"He was so nice, really nice," Grant told TMZ. "He really didn't need to take time to do that but it's awesome that he did."
