In 1991, Jerry West traded three 2nd round picks to acquire Sedale from Seattle. He was supposed to be Magic's back-up, but his shocking retirement in 11/91 put Sedale in the foreground from the outset. In his later years with the team, he backed up Van Exel. Threatt is a forgotten Laker to those who weren't fans in the early 90s, but he held the fort after Magic's retirement and was arguably as important as Worthy in the 1992 season. He got the Lakers into the 92 playoffs on the final shot of the 82nd game vs LAC (end of clip). His most notorious traits were his enthusiasm, his quick swipes of the ball, leading to the nickname of "The Thief", and that he shot probably 90+% of his shots going to the left. At the end are his two finest offensive games: 42 pts at NY on 3/10/92 and 35 pts in Gm 1 of the 1993 1st Round at PHX (I consider that his finest overall game, period). Sedale was one of my favorite Lakers. Wanted to give him some Youtube props. Props to Larry B (not Bird, but still a legend) for various footage used.
