Ian Who?

That must’ve been what Courtney Lee, and the rest of the NBA, was thinking when the young Spurs center from France sent Lee back down to earth with a vicious block, followed by a fast break dunk.

I’ve been saying that this was Ian’s make or break year, and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one that was surprised that he came alive last night against the Nets after 34 DNPs this season. Mahinmi ended up with 15 pts (on 100% shooting from the field) nine rebounds and the one block.

If he continues to play well, then he’ll certainly earn some minutes in the rotation. But in case he doesn’t, you can always come back and watch Ian’s first NBA highlight.
