^^

ok i was kinda exaggerating...


but seriously he couldnt do much to help us...

Not last year when he was comin' off an injury. Now that his starting the season healthy, I hope he can bring back those 10 pts and 6 rbg that we were used but off the bench.

Of course, we have to HOPE. We hope that Bynum comes back a monster again. We hope that Kobe is the MVP once again. We hope that Odom isn't the player we last saw in the Finals. We hope we can have an excellent season... again. Everyone is hoping for something next season.

a player who we know can make a difference, just the way we KNEW Pau was going to make a good impact on us.

I didn't ask what type of player you wanted, of course I'd like to have a player of Gasol's caliber but is he even out there? Gimme a name so we can discuss it.

Mihm has been a bust and underachiever his whole career, for the 7th player taken career avgs of 7ppg and 5rbp is awful. When he started he only averaged 6rbpg which is mediocre for a center. Our record is much better when he does not play, there's no way i want him in a Laker uniform.

Consider the extent of his injury I doubt he ever plays consistent back up minutes again.

I'm not a doctor, but anybody who misses that much time off due to ankle problems is going to be plagued by them for the rest of their career. We saw in limited minutes that he was pretty much a stiff, most likely won't change.

He'll ride the bench, only get minutes in blow outs, etc.

Rotation goes like this.

Fisher - Bryant - Odom - Gasol - Bynum

Bynum sits, Ariza comes in, Odom - Gasol slide over.

Fisher - Bryant - Ariza - Odom - Gasol

Gasol sits, Bynum comes in.

Fisher - Bryant- Ariza - Odom - Bynum.

Odom sits, Gasol comes in.

Etc etc.

Not many minutes for him - ideally you want to keep Gasol or Bynum @ the 5 the entire game

Not to mention he is more foul-prone than Bynum and Turiaf combined...

Play 5 - 6 minutes a game here and there and he'll fulfill his role. It's obvious that there's no leaning on Mihm right now for major contribution, but he's just as good as the Magloires or Mbengas of the world to have around simply for fouls and size. Trust me, he'll be decent to have in a pinch. What I've always liked about the guy is that he always gives 100% when he's on the court - I suspect it will stay that way.

Its the last year of his contract. Let him get a ring and ride off into the sunset with that and an NBA pension in hand. He did well for the Lakers in an odd time and for that I have no problem in keeping him around.

Another good character guy that isn't playing only for the cash (and since he's under contract anyway) is always good to have around.

Chris Mihm was a solid center before he got injured. If he was the same, he would be the perfect backup center.

With all the ankle surgeries going on with, this season is the last chance I'm giving him to prove himself and be worthy enough to stay.

This.

I doubt Mihm will ever regain his form.

people seem to forget that the doctors misdiagnosed his injury, and that was the reason he thought he was healthy at the beginning of last year. they found out pretty quickly and now, apparently, they've gotten him back to 100%

Mihm operating at 100% is better than anything else out there.

people always remember that he picked up fouls, but nobody remembers why. he picked up fouls because our 1 and 3 were terrible defenders, and he was in position to influence the play because he is a great help defender. having fisher and Odom/Kobe/Ariza guarding the perimeter, and he won't be stranded defensively so many times, and his foul issues will be a non-issue

A bust? Kwame is a bust. Mihm is not a bust. When healthy, he was a decent starter for us at around 10 points and 6.5 boards. As a back up, as long as he's healthy, which seems to be the case, he'll do just fine. And I'm sure Gasol will also get minutes at C, so he won't be getting too much time on the court.

And another thing, it's Mihm final year under contract. So you can expect him to work his butt off out there so that he can get paid.

Mihm has a purpose.. He started for the LakeShow a few years back and when he got involved early the Lakers had success. All he needs is a burn here and there, because IF and that is a huge IF, one of our BIGS go down then Mihm may prove useful in his contract year...
