The Hornets and D.J. Mbenga come into the Staples Center for the first time this year.
Mbenga was apart of the championship team last year and this off-season the Lakers let him explore free agency. He was a fan favorite for the past couple of years.
Mike Trudell(Lakers Reporter) tweeted:
Phil Jackson said that captains Bryant & Fisher would most likely present D.J. Mbenga with his 2K10 ring on Friday (vs. N.O.)
It would be cool if Fox Sports shows him receiving his ring.
