Serge Ibaka appears to be showing no signs of slowing down as the Toronto Raptors forward did a FaceTime call with Toronto Public Health workers.
The conversation was posted on Friday night as the latest segment of “How Bored Are You?” where he calls a group of people in a boardroom. Ibaka gave them the platform to share their message about social distancing and washing hands along with scarves, something the Raptors player knows a thing or two about.
Ibaka has made it known that his fascination with scarves is about art and how it allows him to express himself like someone who wears different hats, shoes with different designs and such. The members of Toronto Public Health believe that it plays a larger role than just making a fashion statement.
"“You say the scarf is for art, but I’m telling you that the scarf is actually part of public health,” Dr. Vinita Dubey said, explaining that it can actually help cover coughs. “When you’re done, make sure you wash the scarf.”"

Ibaka wanted to make sure that the workers got their chance to share their message but also wanted to make sure they were getting recognition for the work they have done during this tough time. As a part of his thanks, he said that each worker present would be getting a signed jersey which is certainly a kind gesture.
This is just the latest example of how Ibaka is using his platform to not only increase his popularity but also show people how they can make the most of being in self-isolation.
Along with giving praise to those working hard to help during these tough times, he made sure to provide some thoughts about one of his teammates. After DeMar DeRozan proclaimed that Kyle Lowry was the best Raptors player of all-time, Ibaka doubled down on that sentiment.
