The Lakers have had a long history of great big men…celebrators.
From Mark Madsen to Ronny Turiaf, the purple and gold always seem to have a big guy on their bench that knows how cheer on his mates.
This year’s team has rookie big man Robert Sacre filling this role and he’s awesome at it. The former Gonzaga Bulldog (like Turiaf) has all sorts of moves — my personal favorite is that crab-hand kung fu chop — to show his support of a Laker big play.
Check out his moves for yourself in this great compilation of his celebrations (h/t The Basketball Jones):
