Yesterday, former Lakers forward Mark Madsen was named head coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders and it sparked old memories of Mad Dog Madsen dancing during championship parades.
Rookie Robert Sacre was passed the torch from Madsen and Clippers forward Ronny Turiaf as the cheerleader on the Lakers bench.
Sacre was seen dancing and flailing around after every big basket or dunk and was the only Laker on the bench who seemed into the game.
We asked Lakers Nation between the three former Lakers cheerleaders had the best dance moves:
Shockingly, Sacre received 50 percent of the vote as it seems his dance moves have resonated well with Lakers fans. Madsen came in a close second as it seems like his “Who Let The Dogs Out” wasn’t viewed by the younger generation of Lakers fans.
While Sacre didn’t see the floor that much this season, he was the consummate professional and was a fan favorite. Seeing a player engage with the game even when he isn’t getting significant playing time is great to see and it’s easy to understand why his teammates liked having him around.

Turiaf only received 6.5 percent of the vote as the former Laker has joined the rival Clippers, which can be attributed to his low percentage. While Sacre and Madsen had go-to moves when they danced, Turiaf was more of an energy guy than dancer.
Regardless, all three players were great teammates as even when they weren’t getting playing time, they were supporting each other and making sure the crowd go into the games.
