Mihm wants to stay

Chris Mihm said he has no interest in playing more minutes for a losing team. He wants to stick with the Lakers and have a chance to win the NBA title that eluded him and his teammates in last June’s bitter loss to the Boston Celtics. He said he heard of the report out of Milwaukee that he could be traded for Bucks guard Tyronn Lue.

“I’m happy here,” Mihm said before the Lakers played host to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday night. “I’ve been through a lot in the last five years (with the Lakers), and I feel like we’re on the track to something special here. It’s something I want to be a part of. I’m nine years in (the league); I want to win a title.

“This team has come a long way in the five years I’ve been here. This is something I’ve worked for my whole career. I know the role I have to play here, and right now it’s being a veteran presence on this team, helping the other guys out.”
