The Lakers Missing Link is a DJ

When the Lakers take the floor tonight in search of their 15th World Championship I expect them to throw the kitchen sink at Dwight Howard especially after Phil Jackson’s comments a couple months ago when he stated he would rather have Howard on his team instead of LeBron James. The key to the series is to not allow Howard to score inside the paint and to force him out of the key where he is not nearly as dominate. Phil will have three seven-footers to throw at the beast known as Dwight Howard. Yes, there is a third Laker above 7-foot. His Delta Chi name is D.J. Mbenga. act_dj_mbenga Mbenga has only played in 23 games this year and is averaging 2.7 points a game and 1.3 rebounds. Needless to say he hasn’t been an integral part of the Lakers squad, but that will all change in this series. Mbenga’s greatest achievements to date happened back in the 2006 playoffs. D.J. played for the Dallas Mavericks and Avery Johnson’s wife was being disturbed by some fans and Mbenga reportedly went into the stands with owner Mark Cuban to help usher Mrs. Johnson to the locker room. Because of this ace he was ultimately suspended for 6 games without pay for entering the stands.

So, to wrap things up I think the missing link in the Finals coming to you by way of the Congo and now pimping a Laker jersey is D.J. Mbenga. Between Gasol, Bynum and Mbenga they will have plenty of fouls to put Dwight Howard on the line where he hits a paltry 55%.

My prediction is the Lakers in five because they have the big bodies that Cleveland didn’t have to throw at Howard.

  1. […] As I predicted, the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA Finals in five games and it wasn’t nearly as close as the media tried to make it. All hail the Lakers and don’t be surprised if they are back in the Finals again next year. […]
