Dennis Schröder Responds To People Creating Memes About His Missing Out On $84M


Early in the 2019-20 NBA regular season, the Los Angeles Lakers offered Dennis Schröder a 4-year, $84 million contract extension that was eventually declined by the 27-year old point guard. Schröder was reportedly willing to stay, but was looking for a bigger pay raise at around $100-120 million.

Schröder had a good start for the Lakers and came in help when LeBron James and Anthony Davis were battling injuries in the regular season. However, an abysmal production in the playoffs quickly lowered his value and put him a tight situation in this year’s free agency.

So instead of a $84M payday with the Lakers that was on his table earlier, Dennis had to take a $5.9M offer sheet from the Celtics. While we don’t know if he’ll be starting, or if he’ll be the team’s 6th man, he’ll get enough minutes to show the world that he’s worth more than his current contract and play for a bigger payday next year.

Due to missing out on so much money (for now), Dennis has found himself as a laughing stock among fans.

On his birthday yesterday, Dennis kind of fired back at the jokes, with a joke of his own, while basically calling all of us poor. He took matters into his own hands and went the ‘control the punchline instead of being the punchline’ way.

“I’m gonna do this ONE time! Insert your best “fumbled the bag” joke here.
It’s my birthday so let’s get this over with and get back to business!
