Right? :man10:

I think we all had the experience of just seeing the super tall kid on the basketball team that was awful but got there because he was tall. Meanwhile we (or someone we know) is working their tails off and can't make it because they aren't big or tall enough.

Happens all over the place.

I think Sacre is better than a sacre of crap, but everyone else is really down on him. He seems like a good kid, has said all the right things, and has made a nice impression on the staff. I don't know why everyone just crushes him all the time. It makes me root for him. :man10:

Yeah dammit! :jam2: I'd like to see another big that could take some minutes and beating off of our main bigs during the 2nd half blowouts we should hopefully be seeing for the first time in a long time.

I'd rather keep him. Good 3rd stright C like DJ Mbenga. Not very skilled or smart but theres no shortage of effort from him. He and Nash also seem to have a good relationship

And besides he was handpicked by Jim Buss so hes gonna be around

Like I said during the summer league, he looked like the only player who was "NBA ready". He doesn't do a whole lot except basic bread and butter stuff, but he's solid at it. Suitable 3rd string big man.

Not bad. Big man, good hands. Foul prone, but he'll learn.

Needs to keep his feet planted in the paint, and finish strong. He's serviceable.

He looked better than I thought, I didn't think he'd even be able to score in an NBA game. Maybe he just looked less stiff compared to that other big dude Somogyi ( or whatever it is), that guy is huge, but so immobile. In the end I guess we could have done worse with a 60th pick, he could very well be a 3rd stringer.

I would love to have CDR on this team, but I would not mind at all if Sacre took the last roster spot. In the event that one of our bigs goes down, Nash will still have Sacre playing like a serviceable player like say... Marcin Gortat, Robin Lopez or... Amare

Just to be fair, and I like Sacre, but Nash made Robin Lopez look like a productive big for a while.

If he played all his minutes with Nash, I'd say he would be a nice big off the bench. But when he's not with Nash, IMO, I think he would get lost in the shuffle and not do much.

This. His production was all Nash's doing. He won't be the same sacre-ment of offense without Nash on the floor offensively.

He also made Gortat into a near 20/10 player.

Alright, Sacre has some talent. He works hard and he's strong, but... Nash made him look good. He made good players look like All-stars, and he can certainly make a strong, tall rookie center look decent. People have gotten great contracts because of Nash.

Sacre is what I said he was all along, a promising young utility center who will probably one day be a quality 10th-12th man rotating in the front court. I see him as a Scott Pollard type of role player. He is young, he will even improve. I love his toughness, and he is very fundamentally sound...except the whole 7 footer foot shuffling thing, but Bynum did that all the time too.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

3. Robert Sacre provided good energy as the starting center. Laker fans may not exactly frame the boxscore, marking Sacre's debut where he posted six points, on two-of-three shooting, and two rebounds. But he handled his sudden role into the starting lineup with the right approach. He simply hustled. Because of the team's mind-set, that set up Sacre for plenty of opportunities. Nash's first assist as a Laker came off Sacre hitting a bank shot in the lane. He also converted on a hook shot in the post. Sacre logged five points and two rebounds in his first seven minutes. Sure there were some mistakes: a few missed defensive assignments and a travel. But he filled in fairly well.

looks like he'll be getting a backup C role while Hill is out. I think he'll be fine for our bench as an energy and hustle guy. Allowing Jamison to play the 4 like he should

Another confident showing. Not bad.

He's GOTTA work on a counter post move though. If I was guarding him, I'm expecting that (offensive foul) elbow hook to the short jump hook. He needs to get more elevation on that hook to, he's just slinging it over the defender.

If he can fake spin right, and then go the other way, he has an open dunk every time. He actually gets GREAT position down low with his strength, he just needs to work with a post specialists to add a few more moves to his repertoire.

^ But that's all fine. He's young, he's got decent athleticism, and he's only going to be AT BEST a 3rd string C for us.

I like watching him play. I had faith in him early when few people did, and I'm being rewarded for that faith. I'm talking to you, Weezy! :man1:

Whoa, whoa, whoa, it's 2 preseason games, against the Warriors and a completely gutted and new Blazers team. :man12: I'm rooting for the guy to succeed, I never root against our players and our picks, if they work out it's great for us. I'm still not sold on the guy completely though. He is better than I thought, he has that hook shot down, but I can't see him really getting in many actual games that count. Biggest thing though, is that hook shot is his only move, and by the 3rd time he was trying it the defense was ready for it. You can't have only one move, defenses will figure it out so easily and it will be stopped, he has to learn to fake that hook and go up and under, or pivot the other way or something, or he's going to start getting blocked. But he's a big dude, tall and bulky, he's 7 foot, he's 6 fouls, he's relatively cheap to have on the team, and he has nice touch around the rim, which I think it rare in big men these days. I've gone from thinking he was a stiff and would never make it to believing he can definitely be a 3rd string center in the NBA, I'm happy to admit when I'm wrong if it means a player turns out better than I thought. :mhihi:

Now as for Ebanks... :man1: :mhihi:

Now as for Ebanks... :man1: :mhihi:

Well all I've been saying all along is that he's a 3rd string Center. He's capable of doing that for this team and he's showing it right now. He's giving very DJ-esque performances; albeit he's more offensive minded and DJ was a very good shot blocker.

All I want from him is a solid body to give Dwight work in practice and to give us some short term depth. And he seems up for that challenge.

As for Ebanks, I'm willing to boot him out if CDR out plays him, but I just haven't seen that yet. CDR is a better scorer, but Ebanks is the better defender and rebounder. CDR knows some tricks because he's been in the league and that should get him on the team over Goudelock and Johnson-Odom, but I don't know if he's done enough to beat out Devin just yet.

I see CDR as more of a 2 than a 3. He has the height, but the length isn't there. I don't see him challenging shots against Melo, Lebron, or KD. His quickness also makes him suitable at the 2 on both ends of the floor.
