Glad to see DJ Mbenga get more playing time and be put in a position where his 7 foot body can be put to good use. He can shoot a 15 footer, he can dunk, he sets screens, and he blocks shots. Over the last few months he's had more playing time and he's now proving to be at least as good as Kwame Brown and Chris Mihm were for the Lakers.
So, even if Bynum is slow to return as the playoffs start, at least DJ Mbenga can give Gasol some rest while providing some defense for the team. He's a work in progress and the work is paying off.

Not sure how much 3 minutes in 3 months provides, but I'm always glad to see Mbenga on the court because he provides great inside presence and rebounding abilities. But Powell will probably eat up Mbenga's time.
I like the part of the story about Mbenga helping out 60 kids in his native land. And, oh yes, he has a black belt. Yikes.
