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.
