So DJ Mbenga and Chris Mihm had a tiff during Lakers practice that fell somewhere between "pillow fight" and "slap battle"...and it made the news?! Man, I had worse fights in middle school when my best friend and I disagreed over who got to be Snake-Eyes when we were playing G.I. Joe. (Or "Joes" as he called it.) Not to alarm you, but sometimes blood was involved. Trust me: Nobody wanted to end up being Skidmark or, God forbid, Chuckles.


According to the OC Register: "Tempers flared Monday between Mihm and little-used center D.J. Mbenga during the team's full-court scrimmage. Mihm accused Mbenga of elbowing him twice in the face and Mbenga, who clearly was more incensed, had to be restrained from going after Mihm. However, they left the court together later chatting amiably."

I'm glad those crazy kids worked things out. But this shouldn't really surprise anyone. There had to be an equal-but-opposite reaction to the truce that has seemingly formed between Shaq and Kobe. Nature does abhor a vacuum, after all. But, uh, DJ: You should probably get off the 'roids anyway.

Um, why does Mbenga get the "little used center" tag but Mihm doesn't?
