Pacers Just Drafted Mathurin Says LeBron is “Going To Have To Show Me He’s Better Than Me”

The Pacers selected Bennedict Mathurin No. 6 because the Arizona star might be the best shooter in the draft.

He might be the most overconfident, as well.

Check out this quote, via Ben Golliver of the Washington Post.

“A lot of people say he’s great,” Mathurin said.

“I want to see how great he is. I don’t think anybody is better than me. He’s going to have to show me he’s better than me.”

Whoa, let’s pump the breaks there, rookie.

Mathurin shot up draft boards — when in doubt, always draft the best shooter — and headlines what could be a strong draft for a Pacers franchise looking to remake itself with younger, more versatile players.

Indiana also drafted Gonzaga point guard Andrew Nembhard in the second round and the athletic but raw Kendall Brown out of Baylor.

Indiana is far from done with roster moves, both Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner are available on the trade market.

Indiana is building around the skills of Tyrese Haliburton at the point, and Mathurin’s shooting on the wing fits with that. There is reason for hope in Indiana.

But there’s a long way to go before one should start throwing LeBron’s name around.

This dude will end up being the best player drafted.

I see perennial all star in his future. Maybe all nba in his prime.

He’s definitely the most confident player and he has a pretty nba ready game. Step back game is strong and he’s athletic.

Sort of reminds me of a smaller Ant Edwards

I seen him too and he can definitely hoop but he's not going to be playing these college guys anymore.

But have confidence and being an idiot are two different things.

Yeah ok, y’all just remember the first game between the Lakers and Pacers this year. I expect Lebron to show this young boy it’s levels. LeMemory never forgets anything


And it’s weird that nobody even mentioned LeBrons name. The kid just threw it out there and said “a lot of people says he’s great”
No sh*t everyone says that, he’s literally one of the greatest players to ever play. Wtf is wrong with these kids

Easy to say about someone who's out of their prime, but I hope the best for the kid...

Even though UofA produces good NBA talent, none have really shot up to superstar status.

I can appreciate his confidence but this is a bit much. If/when he doesn't prove to be as good as LeBron or any other elite player, is he gonna walk his comments back? Doubt it

These youngins got talent and got confidence and I wish them all the best in their careers.

However, I can’t help but feel they gonna see that hooping in college against kids their age and hooping against grown a*s men, who have had S&C coaches for 10-20 years on top of all their NBA experience, are two totally different things to the point you could even say it’s almost a different sport.
