Thank you DJ for the wonderful memories you left in LA and thank you for your contributions, whether it was on the court or not. I, as well as other Laker fans, am/are glad you found a new team to play for. Thank you Dacos!

The Hoops Market: According to the Belgian media, D.J. Mbenga will continue his career in the Denver Nuggets. Both parts would have reached a one-year agreement in principle. Mbenga has played during the last two seasons for the Los Angeles Lakers, helping his team to win both titles. Last season, the 29-year-old Belgian center averaged 2.2 points and 1.8 rebounds in 51 games.

    Congratulations to “Congo Cash”. great guy, class guy, hard worker, and positive person.

    He’ll give the Nuggets some size, strength, atleticism, rebounding, and shotblocking at the center posiston.

    Good luck with the Denver Nuggets big fella !

    I wish him the best of luck. He’s the kind of guy fans love to have on their teams, even if he doesn’t get tons of playing time. A real character guy.

    Rumors about his re-signing w LA are definitely over now. I hope they appreciate him in Denver as much as we appreciated him here.

    Dang mayne! I love Mbenga…Did anybody realize we have never lost the championship with him on our team? He’s a good luck charm! Hopefully, the Lakers can still win!

      Actually, we lost in 2008.

    • andrew

      Lol yeah Mbenga was there when we got killed by the C’s in 2008.. You mean we never lost a Championship with Brown/Morrison..

      • Evil Empire

        Has anyone heard anything of Morrison being signed by team? Last I heard is that he tried out for the bulls and thats it? Maybe he’s going overseas?

    Good luck with the Nuggets Mbenga. I liked the energy he brought off the bench, even though he didn’t get much PT. He seems like a good guy.

    Boston signed Tony Gaffney. If you click on him for his stats (off of the Boston roster) you get a picture of him in Lakers uniform. Just thought it was funny. To bad he didn’t make the squad last season. But if you can’t make it on the lakers squad there is always Boston.
