Magic Johnson had harsh words about Dennis Schroder and his performances with the Los Angeles Lakers this season. After getting traded from the Oklahoma City Thunder, the point guard appeared to be that third-string the Lakers needed to defend their NBA title.
Well, that never happened, and the German player ended this season on a really low note. The Lakers Nation punished him for his poor games against the Phoenix Suns (he went scoreless in Game 5), and Magic jumped on that train.
“I don’t think he’s a Laker. I don’t know if they’re gonna sign him back or not, but I don’t think he brings the winning mentality and attitude we need. He had a chance to show that in this series. And to me, he failed in this series.”
