Dennis Schrder wants to start for the Lakers. He made that clear at his inaugural press conference with the team on Monday.
“I’ve already done bench things with OKC for two years,” Schrder said. “I think with AD and LeBron, I could be helpful as a starter in the BG position, so LeBron doesn’t have so many things on his mind.”
Unfortunately for Schrder, it was not up to him; This is up to Frank Vogel, who, according to a report by ESPN’s Dave McMahon on Monday, has not yet decided who will start for him:
Sources told ESPN that the lockers did not settle in their starting lineup. Although Schrder will be considered for the starting point guard position, sources said he may be asked to fill the bench.
Schrder posted with numbers Oklahoma City Thunder Last season definitely considered him for the starting spot with the Lockers. Of the 65 appearances from the bench for Thunder last season, Schrடர்der averaged 18.9 points per game, 46.9% shooting from the field and 38.5% shooting from behind the curve. He averaged 4 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game.
However, talent is not the only thing that determines which players should go to the starting lineup; Match plays a role, and the primary court of Kentavius Caldwell-Pope and Wesley Mathews will be similar to their primary court last season. In addition, the back court of Schrder and Alex Caruso will resemble the Rajon Rondo and Caruso twins for stylistic; A couple who enjoyed success together last season.
There are cases for Schrder to start and Schrder to get off the bench, but they are both not his. We hope Schrder can survive no matter what conclusion Vocal comes to. Otherwise, the synergy that the lockers had in their locker room last season may face an initial test during their title defense.
