Ian Mahinmi Detained At White House, And Not Because Of Bow Tie

Who'd have thunk that in a room containing Barack Obama, Brian Cardinal and Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks center Ian Mahinmi would be the least fashionable?

No Tucker Carlson-ing it in a Democratic White House, boss. Actually, Mahinmi was detained briefly during the Mavs' compulsory visit on Monday, and not because of the crooked bow tie.

From Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News:

Ian Mahinmi was detained briefly when the Mavericks arrived at the White House. His identification had the wrong birth date on it. But the issue was quickly resolved.

Thank goodness new Mav Yi Jianlian didn't make the trip.
