Dancin’ The Season Away With Sacre

By Jeff Case

Lakers rookie Robert Sacre, the “Mr. Irrelevant” of the 2012 NBA Draft (aka the last pick), made a name for himself in the preseason with his physical play and impressed veterans Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol with his energy. He got 197 minutes of playing time in the exhibition season, was seventh on the team in scoring and was a nice little story.

As of today, Sacre has seen 19 minutes of action, mostly in mop-up duty during blowouts. Still, he’s generated quite a following for his exuberant celebrations on the bench of his teammates’ plays. You know, of course, that it’s only a matter of time for that kind of behavior to get its own YouTube highlight and, viola!, we have one now.



Mark Madsen remains perhaps the most famous dancing Laker of all time, but he kept his moves to the championship celebration parades. Who else comes to mind as famous dancers on the bench? We welcome your thoughts below.

    He is the best team player in the NBA, he deserves a spot on any team because he is so jacked for everyone all the time.

    the song’s is the barbara streisand song i believe, but the guy just covered up her name with sacre’s.

  21. LAKERNATION!!! says:

    I have watched every Lakers game this season, and I was SURE that Sacres’ celebration dances would make it onto Shaqtin A Fool…

  22. Lakerslane says:

    Glad to see a player still excited about the game. If I was in his shoes, I would be doing the same. He maybe sitting in the Bench but he still in the NBA, getting paid to travel, practice and meet all the NBA players.

  23. Alex says:

    Ahah! Finally!

    I’ve pushed Shaq last couple of weeks to put Robert Sacre in Shaqtin a fool. Didn’t make it. (Tweet @shaq)
    Anyway, i’m happy to see that peeps have noticed him dancing around the sideline. I started looking at him during the Spurs win @Lakers. He’s awesome!
    He probably won’t dance in next Lakers game.

    And what did it get him? Sent to the D league. D’Antonio sucks and the Lakers management sucks. Shows how they treat positive people who care about their teammates and the game.

    Oh well, at least he is doing well in the D league. Maybe he will get a call up later in the year. Keep it up Mr. Sacre!!! We fans appreciated you and your positive attitude!!!!

  25. ray says:

    Those are some dope moves Robert Sacre, and imma let you finish… but Joakim Noah has some of the BEST dance moves of ALL-TIME.

  26. Mike says:

    We need to put a mic on Sacre for the “Mic-ed up” portion when games are aired on TNT, NBA TV etc. Would love to hear what he says while dancing.

  27. CLICK ME! YOU'VE BEEN NOT WARNED! says:

    Miami Heat need a big center ! go to miami SACRE!!!!

  28. Boris says:

    I think,He gona be fit very much to Lakers Girls squad!

  29. Heisenberg says:

    Sacre the mascot and Sacre the lucky charm

  30. dattebayo says:

    Well thats what happens when you get Duhon on your team. Even though it looks funny and seems supportive, I really think that it’s the main reason Sacre had to go play in the D-League. How can you be that demonstrative on the bench and be taken seriously, this ain’t college.

  31. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but
    after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found it and
    I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
