From the Euros to his return to the Lakers, the beautiful summer of Dennis Schroeder

The blow was bold and Dennis Schroeder He tried in his career without necessarily being crowned with success. We remember in particular that he left two big Lakers bids during the season to finally commit last summer to Boston for less than six million dollars. Ten months ago, he had a contract worth over $80 million on the table…

This time, the leader was not far from the perfect shot, showing himself on schedule, with Euros at home with Germany, in third place. On the eve of the last game of the campaign, he then signed up for the Lakers, where he would especially find the Westbrook-James-Davis trio.

“I didn’t play in the Olympics last year because of my contractual situation. That’s why I didn’t. But everyone sees the commitment I showed, even without signing a contract.He remembers after winning the bronze medal. “I love these guys, and I love this union. I’ll keep playing until I can’t walk anymore.”

He will give his medal to his teammate

It was a time that satisfied an entire nation, proud to be able to say that Dirk Nowitzki had made way for a generation with a bright future ahead.

For Dennis Schroeder, this success was also an opportunity to establish his leadership, through a simple gesture that meant a lot: by promising to award his medal to Robin Benzing, a selection veteran who had previously made preparations to be disqualified from Gordon Herbert’s 12-man list.

“We have been working for this for the past 8-9 years, since I joined the national team. To finally get something like this. Of course, we wanted to get gold, but at the end of the day, the main goal was to get a medal.”he added. “I’ll see if we can get another one. Otherwise, my bronze medal will go to Robin Benzing.”

A story that ends in Los Angeles

Set aside in Boston, then sent to Houston, Dennis Schroeder has found himself misfiring, within a team that still has to sit in the slums of the Western Conference this season. The Lakers, Muff and Suns lined up at the end of the season, but everyone was waiting to see him at the EuroBasket before making sure he was still worth it.

Confirmation was quick, and Dennis Schroeder eventually picked the Lakers.

“I’ve been talking to the Lakers for three months. I knew I was going back, but I wanted to take my time.”It is to explain. “I’m really looking forward. I’ve spoken with LeBron James, and I can’t wait to get back out there. I want to have something this time.”

This return to the Lakers is also an opportunity for him to rewrite history, hoping it will end better for him this time around.

“LeBron said he’s glad I’m back. We have an unfinished story. That year, when I was there, there were no fans. There was covid, and everyone got infected. This year, I hope all is well, everyone stays healthy, And then we’ll try to get something.”
