At the center of the controversy for his completely failed performance in Game 5, Dennis Schröder seems to have his head elsewhere. A few hours before the crucial 6th game of the series, the German leader released a very noticed action on his social networks …
What’s going on in Los Angeles? The plain and waterproof wardrobe for the 2019-2020 season seems to have given way to a gigantic circus, where everyone wanders their moods. After the weird tweets of Montrezl Harrell first then, more recently, by Andre Drummond, it is Dennis Schröder who gets down to it.
The former Hawks and Thunder made a very noticeable change to his Instagram bio, and all this just a few hours from the crucial Game 6. Enough to leave the Angelinos fan base speechless …

Dennis Schröder removed the « Los Angeles Lakers point guard » mention from his Instagram bio.
A decision with very bad timing, especially when you add the personal context of the player. Author of a all-time nullity record for a Laker in Game 5, DS is under fire for its refusal of the extension to more than 80 million proposed by the Lakers, which it deemed insufficient.
Trade rumors are beginning to emerge in the market, with New York and Miami in particular in ambush according to US insiders, and Schröder’s future seems more than ever to lie far from Los Angeles. The fact remains that professionalism is expected until the end of the season – instead, the leader blows on the embers.
One more concern in a Lakers locker room which seems much less in tune than in the past. At the dawn of a Game 6 which could end the purple and gold season and inflict on Lebron james his first all-time defeat in the first round of the playoffs, Anthony Davis has moreover put pressure on everyone.
Not really inspired, Dennis Schröder only worsens his case. His only hope to escape the wrath of the fans? Make a great match 6. It’s up to him.
