After a deflating loss to the Indiana Pacers, the bad news keeps rolling in for Lakers fans. Robert Sacre, bench dancer extraordinaire, has been sent down to the D-League.

It's been a historic run for Robert Sacre on the Los Angeles Lakers bench, but alas, all good things must come to an end. Per an official release from the Lakers website Sacre, the 60th pick in this years NBA draft, has been assigned to the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the D-League. He will join Darius Johnson-Odom and is expected to play in their season opener tonight.

EL SEGUNDO – The Los Angeles Lakers have assigned rookie forward/center Robert Sacre to the D-Fenders, it was announced today.

Sacre, a 7-0 forward/center out of Gonzaga, was selected by the Lakers in the second round (60th overall pick) in the 2012 NBA draft. Sacre finished his career with the Bulldogs ranked second all-time in school history in career blocks (186) while averaging 9.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 135 games. As a senior, Sacre was named the 2012 WCC Defensive Player of the Year as well as an All-WCC First-Team honoree while averaging 11.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks - Lakers.com

Sacre showed promising signs though the preseason and should do well in the D-League, where he can continue to actually PLAY the game of basketball and grow as a player. In the meantime, this is the perfect excuse to drop the Robert Sacre tribute video again. Because... well... you know.
