Have you ever wondered what happened to Robert Sacre? Following his stint with the Los Angeles Lakers, not a lot has been heard about him — until now…
While only a few know that he is continuing his professional career in Japan, he made a lot of headlines recently, when a video of him came out where he participated in the B League’s Slam Dunk Contest. While he is a former NBA player, it’s easy to imagine him excelling in it, and having a distinct advantage as he has seen some of the best dunkers throw down vicious slams in the past. However, that was not the case.
The 28-year-old Gonzaga product was not able to pull off a windmill dunk. Although it’s not the easiest to complete, he attempted it without much flare, and given his height of 7-feet, he still did not have enough elevation for it. He then settled for an even simpler two-handed jam, which resulted to him receiving 9s from the judges, in what can be considered very generous scores from them, in a video uploaded by CBS Sports’ James Herbert via NBA Reddit.
Apparently, people love him no matter the dunks he does… or the hilarious misses.
Robert Sacre is trending?!
