After the Lakers’ summer league game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, we managed to get Robert Sacre to talk to us about how his rookie year was, what he’s working on, and other things.
FORUM BLUE & GOLD: How would you describe your rookie year?
ROBERT SACRE: I think I’ve seen more in one year than most guys have seen in five. That’s basically how I can wrap it all up in one year.
FB&G: Pau Gasol is still on the team. Chris Kaman was just signed. What are your individual goals with you possibly being the fourth big man (Jordan Hill is still on the team) on the team?
RS: Just to bring a lot of energy and get some playing time. You gotta focus on being able to get on the court by any means necessary.
FB&G: A lot of people don’t look at the Lakers any more as a championship team. Is that what we should look at them as?
RS: No. Not at all. We’re just as competitive and hungry like any teams going for the championship. I think we’re up there.
FB&G: We saw you shoot a couple of jumpers in (your summer league game against Cleveland). We even saw you shoot a three! Besides those jumpers, what part of your game are you working at?
RS: I’m just working on my all-around game. Be able to distribute, pass, and always play defense.
FB&G: Lastly, the Lakers just hired Mark Madsen as the assistant coach. Who is the better dancer? You or Mark?
RS: Me. Hands down. I hold it down with the dance moves.
We’d like to thank the always-entertaining Robert Sacre for a couple of minutes of his time.
