Thanks For The Mihm-ories

Would you rather have injury-prone forward/center Chris Mihm or a conditional 2nd round pick in the 2013 NBA draft from the Memphis Grizzlies?

So would the Mitch Kupcheck. And that's why the Lakers pulled the trigger on a deal that sent the oft-injured, seldom used former Texas Longhorn and his $2.5 million salary to the home of Elvis, Justin Timberlake, and FedEx in a move to free up some cap room and reduce the amount of luxary tax money that the Lakers will have to pay to back to David Stern and the boys at the end of the season.

In his five seasons with the Lakers, Mihm never reached his full potential as a result of a serious of ankle injuries that left him less explosive and mobile than when he came into the league as a highly-successful college player. He was currently averaging 2 points, 2 rebounds for the team this year buried on the depth chart below one of the deepest front courts in the league. His best season in the purple and gold came in 2005-06, when he averaged 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, and was a solid contributor for the squad at the starting center position.

From all accounts, Chris was nothing but a true professional in all his time in the City of Angels, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors in Memphis.

And maybe, just maybe this will help get both Lamar and Trevor resigned this offseason...only time will tell.
