The only thing NBA fans know about Ian Mahinmi is that he was posterized by LeBron James during the NBA Finals.
So I’m not sure why anyone would care about Mahinmi’s thoughts on Kobe vs. LeBron, but here’s what the Spurs’ 2005 1st round draft pick from France had to say:
“Kobe is super arrogant but everybody loves him. To me, Kobe is more arrogant (than LeBron James).”
Thanks, Ian. Next week, we’ll get our NBA fix when a newspaper in Zaire asks former Maverick/Laker D. J. Mbenga: So, who was the better scorer, Kobe or Dirk? [via Hoops Hype]
