Robert Sacre Discussion: Snoop, DMX, Tyson on his side (13)

I think Sacre belongs in the NBA, I have seen plenty of worse 3rd string centers, and this is coming from a guy that saw nothing of value in him at the beginning of preseason. He knows basic things that other guys who are in the league just because they are tall lack, like how to set a screen, how to cut to the basket off of it and have his hands ready to the ball. He also has a decent back to the basket game, knows how to use his size, actually has a decent jump shot, and from what I have seen from time to time, decent man defense using that size. He's tall, but he's not skinny, he's not nearly as slow as I thought, and he knows how to put himself in the right positions to be passed the ball for easy hoops. We saw this all preseason with him and Nash, he knows the game. He's not a star, never will be, but I think he definitely belongs and wouldn't mind him being our 3rd string cheap center for years to come.

Off the court I saw an older Backstage Lakers on the other day and he was just a cool dude, hard working, funny, humble, taking pictures and signing things for fans from his car leaving practice, living in a humble apartment with his family. I know there are a million guys with the same story playing ball for a living, on the fringe of the NBA, in the D-League, overseas, but it still makes me root for the guy to stick in the league.

He's not slow at all. He just can't jump for some reason. But at least he's strong, and that's something. No one is going to call him soft.

He played a really solid 10 minutes. He had a couple really nice plays in a row for us that kept us running in the 2nd.

I like him. He will never be close to a star, but he can be a solid bench player. He is intelligent, has a great team first attitude, he works hard, and is willing to accept coaching. He seems durable.

With Pau out and until we get another serviceable big he's going to get some minutes. Hopefully he can play a Turiaf type of a role where he brings his energy off the bench.

no offense to sacre, he seems like a good guy and probably works hard but as of now, other than some size, he really brings nothing.

his can at least be a body but hes just not athletic enough to do much for us with big minutes. his offensive skill set is next to none. his d is decent but nothing close to good. his shot release is too slow and any shot he makes is mostly out of luck it seems. we need someone who at least can get off the ground for rebounding and blocking/altering shots. im glad hes had some starting experience and game experience under his belt. he doesnt look terrible out there but hes not gunna be a long term fix...we need to sign a kenyon martin type player to bring what jordan hill would. just defense rebounding and get points by putbacks and easy layups. high energy. sacre isnt that.

man i miss jordan hill.

He should get consistent 2nd string minutes with Dwight and Pau out. I suppose Jamison is our starting center now.

thats true. He really is just there because he has 6 fouls to give. Whenever he plays more than like 8 minutes, it will probably be an ugly experience for the Lakers and their fans.

Decent 1 on 1 post D and has the ability to free himself up for easy baskets at the rim but has bad hands to finish ... can't grab a rebound in traffic and is a moving screen call waiting to happen ...

can't seem to have proper body balance too ... he had an easy rebound against BK but jumped awkardly and tip the ball instead of grabbing it :man3:

Why are you guys picking on Rob Sacre of all people? :man10:

Yes, we all agree he sucks, but that's what your 3rd string 7 foot center is supposed to be. A body. Something to throw out there for a few minutes a night when a guy is hurt or there's foul trouble. He's nothing special, he's nothing amazing, but he's a good kid and he's a hard worker.

When he plays I enjoy it because I'm seeing a dude work his *** off for our team. I don't expect him to have a double-double or anything...

That was funny, as soon as they showed him JVG said something like "Robert Sacre's over there on the bench losing his mind", cracked me up.

I think you could do worse for a 3rd string C. I wasn't a believer early last season, but he has some post moves, a jumper, he's a big body, 6 fouls, cheap, a good teammate and happy to be in LA.
