Dennis Schroder Gets Blunt About Lakers’ Chemistry Problems

Dennis Schroder Gets Blunt About Lakers’ Chemistry Problems

The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 108-93 on Saturday night.

Since LeBron James went out with a high-ankle sprain on March 20th the defending champs are 6-13.

Currently LA is in fifth place in the West and a mere 2.5 games ahead of the seventh place Portland Trail Blazers.

Following his team’s most recent embarrassing defeat to the Mavericks, their second in less than a week, Lakers guard Dennis Schroder spoke out on the chemistry issues that have been plaguing the team and resulting in a somewhat discombobulated product on the court.

“I think when [LeBron] comes back we’re going to have a conversation as a team,” he said.

“Because our chemistry, like AD said, off the court is great, but on the court we’ve just got to turn it up some more.”

That said, Schroder isn’t worried long-term. He knows this is a minor hiccup in a long process.

“We’re going to be fine, but in the meantime we’ve still got to get wins.”

Schroder has been the source of a lot of intrigue over the past few weeks. He has served as both a stabilizing presence for the team on the court, and something of a polarizing figure off it. Between his questionable future with the organization, his racist run-in with Kyrie Irving, and his beef with Rajon Rondo – there have been no shortage of Schroder-related stories this year.

That said – he’s definitely right about the Lakers. The chemistry needs to be rebalanced, and hopefully James’ return will ultimately take care of that problem.
