This is a conversation that came up tonight in the Lakers victory against the Kings and how he's been playing lately.    So I wanted to know, should Sacre continue to fit this role, as this pseudo defender but gets easy shots guy, probably fight for rebounds guy that Sacre has what is his ceiling with the Lakers? 

 

My dad said Sacre is the kind of guy that doesn't do one thing particularly well but he's always active. 

Basically the guy you tell 

Do three things..

Set Good Screens and Roll to the basket.
Try to Block every shot that comes your way
Pass to cutters

And don't try to do anything else or I'll bench you.   Sort of like a Madsen "type". 

 


I agree with him in a way.   But I wanted to get the forum members opinion on the guy.   What do YOU think his ceiling is?   Just a wondering.

Tiago Splitter?

I would agree with this statement, but our coach is Mike D'antoni. He has not proven he has the ability to develop and improve players. If our coach was Greg Popovich, then I 'd agree. But who knows?

Was just 1 game so I wont overreact but it seemed like he was really good at pick and rolling.

Robert Sacre

disagree with you.

He's got a lot of hustle and size but very little skill. He is actually pretty good on the P&R, but thats with defenders not eyeing him. also his vertical is like 2 inches lol. A solid cheap bench player at best but probably not on the lakers.

To be fair he played just as good if not better against portland.

Sacre guarded Cousins well, but it's easy to get inside that dude's head. I want to see how Rob matches up against other bigs.

I believe he had 11/5 today and 2 blocks, only 16 minutes cause he got in foul trouble early. That's not bad at all actually.

That's debatable especially with D'Antoni/Nelson's system. Players value and stats tend to inflate, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are improving.

i think theres a lot of potential, hopefully he gets a lot of break this year, but its hard since d'antoni keeps shuffling the guys who will play or not. look at xavier, he gets benched even if he played a great game.. the only thing im worried is how he adjusts to his defender now since they know he can score, only after that we can truly evaluate his ceiling.. but i gotta that he has a soft touch on both hands, that mini hook was sweet

I hope implying that Wilt was better than Kareem is also a part of the joke.

I don't think any of us should look at Rob as a threat on the offensive end. He can pick and roll with Blake, but his value thus far has been as our rim protector and a foul sponge.

Whatever he wants it to be.

Personally, he's turning out to be a nice pick if he can keep it up consistently.

Asik is a good name to throw out there as far as his ceiling. He's a big body that is showing signs of being able to catch a Steve Blake pass and go up strong. Defensively, he reminds me a Hill, last season when he first started getting minutes. He plays so strong that he picks up fouls in a hurry.

This is obviously a win win when a player that big begins to show sign like Robert has. His trade value will be unreal if he puts up 7+ and 7+ reb in the next 10-15 games. If he earns even more playing time out there, he'll get the hang on controlling his defensive intensity and be a little more like Hill.

To me, Hill has proved that he can produce and hustle effectively. If sacre can show us that he can keep this up, he will be a very valuable role player moving forward. Having Hill made all of the difference, but having two guys who play with that much heart can really take us far.

Let's hope Sacre can learn how to stay out of foul trouble and keep up the hustle. To me, his ceiling is as a defensive anchor, like Asik. He can actually jump pretty high, so he can get up there with his blocks if he continues to develop like this.

But yeah, its only been a few games. Let's give it 15-20 or so games before we get into detail of his performance.
