He can block shots... and Nash can make him look acceptable on offense. He looks like backup-worthy, or at least can be in the future.

The dude is a rookie, in fact the last guy in the draft, starting for the Los Angeles Lakers. That was about as good as we could have hoped.

He started off great, but Houston adjusted and just beat him with their speed. I loved what he did though. It's not his fault we lost.

He played very well in the first half. Could be a solid contributor. Surprised me a bit.

I've been pulling for this kid from day one, just ask Weezy :man10:

I think he's got career 3rd stringer written all over him. Good guy, great teammate, solid build and size. He's good enough to take a chunk of minutes if there's some injuries on the team. The guy is a keeper.

he annoys the hell out of me when he's doing his cheer routine on the bench

but his play surprised me and he actually had a decent game for being the last overall pick in the draft and a rookie. obviously he has alot of learning to do but if he can create an inside presence with dwight out, it would really help out this team

Sacre works hard, has some ability and can block shots. Well done #50 :jam2:

Dude has the tools to become a great low post defender, was able to keep Timmy from playing well. If he can work on his touch around the rim and recognizing when he should concede a layup/dunk instead of giving up an and-1, he may just have a future in this league.
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

^ Actually the reason he played less than Clark and Jamison is because despite his size, Timmy ate him up in that 2nd or 3rd quarter.

He was NOT efficient from the field today. Not at all. He expended a ton of energy trying, and failing, to defend Duncan. Not the kid's fault though, that's an assignment that's been beating teams for over a decade now. I love the kid's motor.

Sacre actually plays above my expectations. He has no hops, but he's strong and working extremely hard. He's a career backup, obviously, but a real backup who can have an NBA career for sure.

Who was more raw coming into their rookie season, Bynum or Sacre?

Sacre shows some signs of possessing quality fundamental basketball skills. Not out of the question he develops into a solid back-up in a couple of years. Technically speaking, he has more post moves than Dwight.

IMO Sacre sucks and doesn't belong in the NBA. He is a nice guy and all but he doesn't belong in the NBA.

Can't rebound, can't shoot with confidence, slow-footed, has no post moves whatsoever. Bynum was raw but he was a manchild. He didn't even need skills to push people around in the NBA.

I don't know what you're seeing or not seeing here KB24.

This guy is the classic 7 footer 3rd string guy. He works his tail off and he tries hard. The Bynum thing was a weird question... Bynum is, was, and will be better
But Sacre is good for depth on any NBA team.

Well to be fair, Bynum was a lottery pick & Sacre was almost un-drafted. The question I posed wasn't one of comparison but to gauge opinions on if there is potential for improvement with Sacre. It actually wasn't that weird.

Sacre had college to develop his game and potentially has more of a center skill set than Bynum did in his first year. Bynum had a couple years of high school (not even 4), but was physically imposing, way more so than Sacre, had great hands, and decent footwork for a big.

So yeah, Bynum being the manchild that he was had advantages over Sacre in his first year. Are those same advantages the difference between Sacre & Bynum in future potential? If someone worked with Sacre, could he develop his game, improve and possibly be a solid backup center one day?

Still kind weird :man9:

Is there room for improvement? Sure. There is always room for improvement. But not much :man10:

You're not going to make him jump much higher or move much quicker. You might be able to teach a quicker jump shot. You might be able to make him a little stronger to box out better... You might be able to teach some better post moves, but he's so slow I really doubt it.

I'd say, and I've been pretty consistent with this prediction, that he can be a career 3rd stringer a la Prizbylla or the Hollins brothers. Or a Dan Gaduric type of guy.

Lol I swear I'm not comparing them I'm not :spam:

So athleticism is probably hindering him the most. If he was more athletic, he could be a bigger beast on the boards and make quick post moves to the basket.

Prizbylla wasn't bad. It'd be cool if he turned into that kind of player. Lakeshow tends to let go of young prospects, if this kid has room for growth, we should hang on to him. He is kind of a clown though, don't know if he has that work ethic.
