Robert Sacre was not someone MDA was looking to when he thought of players to provide a spark off the bench – evident by his less than impressive stats whilst bouncing between the Lakers and the Defenders.
Sacre, who can play back-up to both Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard served as a cheerleader more than anything else, and that is not meant as any type of degradation.
After every Howard slam or put-back, the first person (and ironically last off the bench) would be Sacre, screaming and jumping in ways reminiscent of Mark “Mad-Dog” Madsen and Ronny Turiaf.
When Sacre did see minutes, it was because the Lakers were on the back end of a blowout. That said, the energy he provided while on the bench was unmatched.
I expect to see much of the same, assuming the roster remains intact. Should Gasol be traded, or Howard depart – blasphemy, I know – Sacre could very well see an increase in minutes.
Don’t be surprised, however, to see him spend another portion of his season in the D-League.
▷ What did YOU think of Sacre’s rookie season? Or more importantly, what did you think of his dance moves?
