Just when you thought the Rockefeller tree owl story couldn’t get any better, Serge Ibaka's name has popped up!

After a teeny-tiny owl was found inside New York City’s iconic Rockefeller center Christmas tree, pictures of the little creature spread far and wide across the internet.

In a tweet, one person made the best comparison between the small bird and the Toronto Raptors very own Serge Ibaka.

Once you've seen "Serge Owlbaka," it's pretty hard to unsee.

The tweet refers to the time Serge Ibaka was spotted wearing that iconic, extra-large orange scarf — pretty similar to the one the Rockefeller owl is wrapped up in.

The duo look like two peas in a pod when donning their matching oversized knits!

Thankfully, after a shaky start to the festive season, the little bird is now safe at a local animal rescue centre. 

When he’s ready, the organization intends to release him back into the wild.

While Rockefeller the owl will get his happy ending, it could be a different story for the city's Christmas tree — as some people are already describing it as "seriously raggedy." Yikes!
