Watch Dennis Schroder get into the sidelines with a German coach
As former coaches and teammates about Dennis Schroder and they say he is…challenging at times. If they are polite that day.
It doesn’t matter on the German national team, where he has already run into Maxi Kleber in the race for the World Cup (Kleber chose not to play for Germany this summer). Then, during Sunday’s game against Slovenia, Schroder appeared to be in a heated conversation with Daniel Theis when German coach Gordon Herbert cursed at Schroder and told him to sit down (no doubt), the then he pushed him in the back to try and get it. the guard to sit. Here is a video of the event, but be warned that the language used is NSFW.
Schroder – who signed with Toronto last season – did not go back into the game immediately after this incident but returned to the court later. He finished with a team-best 24 points and 10 assists as Germany beat Luka Doncic and Slovenia 100-71.
After the game, Schroder spoke to Basketnews about the incident.
“I mean, basketball is an emotional sport,” Schroder told BasketNews. “It’s a running game, and you have to stay cool. Me and Daniel go way back, I’ve known him since I was 12 or 13. We had moments like that when we were young too, but he always helped us. up our game.”
“That’s what happened today. We went in there, and I said to him, ‘Listen, that’s what you have to do, and you can tell me the same thing.’ Of course, he’ll be hurt a little bit. He’ll come back a little bit, but he’ll give it his all. I think that’s what happened.”
Germany will face Latvia in the quarter-finals on Tuesday. The winner of that game will take on the winner of USA vs. Italy.
