Great news, although Mihm is pretty decent when he's healthy, so Mbenga might find it difficult to get playing time.

Nice. He is a good spark off the bench defensively, he may fit in since Turiaf is gone. I think DJ is stronger and better on D than Chris Powell. We´ll find out soon.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Wait are you serious? I thought he was like 6'5" without shoes and 6'6" with shoes. :D


Yeah in reality though Kobe admitted that he's 6'4" without shoes and 6'6" with his shoes on.

I doubt basketball shoes will add two inches, especially the Kobe's, which are known to have a thinner sole than most so that your feet feel closer to the ground...

Wait 6'4"? How do people gain two inches from shoes? :blink: The NBA needs to learn how to measure. :lol:

guys, the Mbenga Mback title is originally from the quoted article (from the K bros at the LA Times Blog)

they're actually really funny most of the time, and I would recommend adding their blog to the list of sites you visit regularly

I wonder why Phil didn't insert DJ in the crucial stages of the series against the Celtics?

He did try to integrate Mihm, which eventually yielded minimal results.

DJ played more during the season.

Could it be bad coaching?! O.O

He must have flipped a coin between Mbenga and Mihm. :D
Haha I don't know what he was thinking when he put Chris Mihm out there. :lol:

Because either way, it wouldn't have made a difference AT ALL.

Lakers - Mbenga = no 2008 championship
Lakers + Mbenga = no 2008 championship

Therefore: Mbenga = 0.

How's that for a proof?
