Dennis Schröder’s cash message after his return to the Lakers!

Left a year ago in rather exceptional circumstances, Dennis Schröder is finally already back at the Lakers. For the occasion, the German leader has decided to send a big message to the Pourpre et Or community. A way like any other to make amends.

Even if they couldn’t get rid of Russell Westbrook before the season opener, the Lakers will have at least managed to strengthen their rotation at the lead. After having already added Patrick Beverley to the workforce of Darvin Ham a few weeks ago, the Californian leaders have indeed just recorded an additional reinforcement in this position. with Dennis Schröder. And despite the upheavals within the franchise in recent months, it should quickly find some automatisms.

Indeed, remember that the German has already played for the Purples and Golds, during the 2020-21 campaign (15 points and 6 assists on average). Except that he left them after barely a year, which was not a winning bet since he found himself wandered between the Celtics and the Rockets, where he was even put in the closet. He therefore tried again in the City of Angels, which explains why he wanted to be so committed to the local fanbase on Instagram:

Dennis Schröder happy to be back

Laker Nation! !! Last year wasn’t what it was supposed to be…I felt misunderstood and no one really knew the story! I’m coming back to the greatest franchise there is to make it right! I hope the LakerNation will support me every day! I will give everything I have every day! It’s an honor to play for the Lakers. I am excited to begin !

Small discount in context: if DS had left Los Angeles in the summer of 2021, it was because he felt that the contract extension of up to 84 million over four years offered by the franchise was not sufficient. He was rather aiming for the hundred million! Except that nobody in the NBA was ready to spin him such an amount, and he found himself having to accept a one-year lease at minimum wage on the side of Boston. An XXL humiliation that he hadn’t stolen…

As regrettable as the experience was, one can nevertheless hope that it was instructive for him. Eurobasket 2022 shows in any case that he has lost none of his talent, and the Mannschaft star demonstrated great leadership qualities by leading his team to the last four of the competition. So will he show a new state of mind in LA? His new team is counting on it in any case. Now it’s up to him to justify that trust.

Dennis Schröder returns a bit with his tail between his legs to the Lakers, hence his rather honeyed message. But if he immediately delivers some strong performances, City of Angels fans might quickly forgive him.
