The Lakers drafted Gonzaga center Robert Sacre with the 60th pick in the NBA Draft. Throughout the preseason he got a chance to play while Dwight Howard was on the mend but now that Howard is a go, Sacre's taken over the role of former Gonzaga Laker Ronny Turiaf.
As celebrated by this somewhat random YouTube clip from "believethehypeNBA," Sacre is a tremendous sideline cheerleader for the Lakers:
For reference, here's a snippet of Turiaf back in his Lakers heyday:
Sacre has made eight appearances for the Lakers through the regular season, averaging just 0.3 points a game, but then he's played a total of 19 minutes.
He practices hard, giving Howard a workout in scrimmages. Sacre is a strong, positive personality in the locker room.
As far as his dancing, he still has a lot to live up to if he hopes to truly follow in Turiaf's footsteps.ALSO:
