He really handle Z-Bo really well. Made him take tough shots, jumpers. Boxed him out off second chance points, where Z-Bo excels.

Really nice job. He deserves a raise.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. >> The soft-spoken Robert Sacre who always preaches teamwork and deflects praise showed his playfully cocky side.

The Lakers' second-year center had just played a large part in securing the team's 96-92 victory Tuesday over the Memphis Grizzlies at FedEx Forum by holding bruising forward Zach Randolph to 18 points on 7-for-22 shooting. Sacre soon relished the moments he matched up with Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill in practice where he apparently dominates.

"When Pau gets mad, he starts grunting and groaning and then puts Jordan Hill under the basket," Sacre said. "Me? Nah, not me. I make him shoot jumpers all day."

Hill interjected and playfully argued the accuracy of Sacre's story.

"No one can keep me off the offensive boards," said Hill, though he was limited with only two points on two field goal attempts and two rebounds in eight minutes because of four fouls. "You think Robert can keep me off the offensive boards? If you believe that ... "

Hill laughed playfully in disbelief. But then again, few likely would have believed Sacre could limit Randolph, whom Sacre likened to UFC fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson for his bruising style.

"He's so physical," said Sacre, who has climbed the depth chart this season after the Lakers selected him 60th overeall in the 2012 NBA Draft. "I try to match that physicaltiy and keep him from trying to be aggressive. I wanted to make sure he got the ball as far aaway from the basket so he had to make moves."

The approach worked.

"He played fantastic," Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said of Sacre. "He comes in and plays hard and does everything we ask him to do and more."

Including shutting down Gasol and Hill in practice? That remains up for debate.

He's playing very well, his defense and effort are exactly what you want in a backup center, his offensive skill is just a bonus. He's a strong dude, and talented 7 footers aren't just everywhere to be had, so it looks pretty smart now that he was signed for multiple seasons. I hope he keeps it and can stay relatively consistent, he's an easy guy to root for.

wait... are you saying the Ownership some credit :man4: (not specifically talking ish to you Weez but the FO doesn't get a lot of love these days. lol)

On a serious note, I agree the guy is easy to root for and has some talent.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

:man10: I give ownership credit all the time, like bringing in Young, X, Wes, Kaman on minimum deals (well Kaman was more if I remember right, but still), those moves were great even before we knew how any of then would perform on the court for us. At the time that Sacre got multiple years I didn't really get it, but I guess you want to lock up skilled, cheap 7 footers while you can in case they over perform at ALL and get overpaid elsewhere.

Maximum effort with no sense of entitlement...can't ask for more. Cats like Sacre are easy to root for. Funny stories about Hill and Gasol in practice. Sacre does the dirty work that Gasol or Kaman can't physically do with consistency any more.
No siggie...

Thinking about which Laker will be the biggest surprise (in a good way) this season. I can't help but think Robert is going to be a perfect fit for what Byron is going to want to get done. A player that understand his role and willing to put the work in. Byron is going to love this guy. The other big surprise is going to be Clarkson, much more than the scrub minutes most think he will get. Good coaches like Byron love to have these kind of players.

Mike Tyson was overrated? Does not compute.

Sure, he clocked some scrawny dudes:

But he tooled on some big dudes:

Image

He had awesome defense and elusiveness when he was younger
Image

He was stone cold in the ring

I'm assuming right now Jordan Hill is our starting Center. Any chance Sacre overtakes him?

Mr. Irrelevant looked awful as a rookie, and I didn't think there was too much hope for him. But in year 2, he played over 1000 minutes, shot 48%, and averaged 12/8 per 36 minutes. He was significantly improved. He's a serviceable backup now.

Agreed. Young Tyson would have destroyed just about anyone. Not just beaten - destroyed. He was fast and strong like no one else and he actually had excellent defense.



Honestly I think that Big George Foreman would have been too much for MIke. He had a uncrackable chin, was huge, and threw punches that landed like sledge hammers. Don't get me wrong I would have love to see Ali v Tyson and think that may be a toss up, but watching what Young George could do was nightmarish at times. Heck from what I have read Mike and Crew ducked Old George. George called Tyson out a number of times, even of the Letterman show and Tyson wanted no part of the old man. Even Tommy Morrison after beating GF by UD openly stated that he had to stay away from George and out point him to beat him. He knew if he let George touch his chin too often the freight train would catch him.

Old way too heavy George with the big salesman's smile on his face from selling all the GF Grills...... knockin' fools out in his 40s :jam2:

Ali in Zaire with the brilliant Rope a Dope smartly wore George down and did the seeming impossible, but if you watch the early rounds of that strategy he took some hellacious shots. That was always a strength of Ali's that he could take monster punches and survive. Unfortunately they have clearly taken their toll on him in later life. But look at these two just before the bell and how frightening George looked. Ali....if he was fearful.....certainly was not showing it and already face to face..... getting in George's head. Epic freaking fight. :man4:

MIght be the greatest HW fight of all time( remember that Big George maintains that they were drugging him in the water he was drinking too lol, he doesn't take anything away from ali, nor does he think ali knew about it. Heck he doesn't really like to talk about it, but he said the water tasted like medicine and he started getting drowsy) whether it is true or not ali demonstrated in that fight why he was so dangerous, he was so cerebral.

Normally, I'd ask you guys to go back to discussing Sacre and keep boxing posts in the "other sports" forum, but...

...is there anything to discuss about Sacre at this point? :man3:

Serious question.


Man, I can't wait until the (pre)season starts. :man5:
