Mahinmi, who is French, said in an interview in his native language that Kobe is more arrogant than LeBron. Beware - this link is in Francois. Godspeed reading it.
This is the quote you'll care about:
“Kobe is super arrogant but everybody loves him. To me, Kobe is more arrogant (than LeBron James)," Mahinmi said.
BAM! Take that King James! Not only can you not win an NBA title, you're not even as arrogant as Madame Kobe Bryant. You're being called out by Ian Mahinmi.
The same Ian Mahinmi you posterized in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
I've interviewed both Kobe and LeBron, in a large setting and again with just a couple of media hacks talking to them. They were nice and professional. But my question to Mahinmi, or anyone else is: How the hell can they not be arrogant? They are more than likely surrounded by a flock of sycophants whose job security relies on them to tell them how great they are. After a while, they're going to believe that "Yeah, they're right ... I really did invent water."
Mahinmi's comment is like the fattest award-winning hog. Kobe may only be winning this thing by an ounce or two, but it confirms what we all know - LeBron James still can't win it all.
