DJ is the most motivated and pumped up Laker bench player right now. Most people still think he's a scrub but the fact is that DJ is better than Chris Mihm. He worked on his skill in the gym and patiently waited for his chance. Mbenga has a decent midrange shot ( for a center ) and is an underrated shotblocker. If he can work on some post-up moves and plays defense without fouling he can be another suprise off the bench and even be a role player who can bring energy, block some shots and play well with that second unit. He can substitute Drew when/if he returns. :rolleyes:

Post any DJ related thoughts and articles here :)



DJ's story is pretty interesting and almost unbelievable:



Check the blog, it has a story on DJ too :)

This guy is an impact player. I hope he stops picking up cheap fouls though. The more he plays the less Gasol/Odom have to stay on the floor. Those guys have been playing heavy minutes we need to rest them

DJ is one of those guys that can electrify the crowd, and especially the team. When you see him perform well, it motivates the others even more.

The way he plays, how much effort he puts in, how hyped he always is... it's just amazing.
I hope he's gonna be our backup center by the playoffs and next season.

he seems to try really hard at what he does, which makes him all the more cooler
