NBA : Schroeder: “I want to start as a key player in the ace – What … does LeBron say?

LeBron even averaged 10.2 assists and became a top NBA passer for the first time in his career!

“I played two seasons for the Thunder as a substitute. I think I want to move on and I think with Anthony and LeBron I can be useful as the Lakers’ main point guard. “, Schroeder said in an online presentation to reporters on Monday.

The second “sixth player of the year” behind Montreal Harrell averaged 18.9 points and 4.0 assists, coming off the bench as “typically” a substitute for Chris Paul. And we say typically, because he played 31 minutes, so he often duet in the guards with his experienced teammate.

Something that is probably destined to do the same for the Lakers, unless Frank Vogel changes his mind and passes LeBron again as a small forward. But how will this be done since the “King” always plays with the ball in his hands? And why should the coach of the champions change anything, when with this team (LeBron in the “ace”) he won the championship?

Schroeder also said that he spoke with Frank Vogel, expressing his desire to start as a key player, and his representatives from Octagon, Alex Saratsis (agent of Giannis Antetokounbo) and Jeff Austin had a discussion with the “front office” of the Lakers before the exchange with Danny Green and the No. 28 in the draft.

Schroeder was a key point guard of the Hawks in 2016-18 with almost 6.5 assists average (plus 18.5 points). LeBron last year was the “starter” in the “ace” with 10.2 assists and 25.3 points, falling from the 27.4 he had in his first season with the Lakers.

“LeBron will not need to have so many things on his mind with me. I will be able to put him in a position to score. “I think that’s why they got me,” added Schroeder.

It may eventually happen, but consider that the Lakers do not have a substitute playmaker since Razon Rondo, who played this role, moved to the Hawks.

There is no other point guard and analysts of the Lakers’ “depth chart” believe that only Alex Caruso could take on this role if Schroeder starts on the “ace” or next to LeBron in the “backcourt” of the team.
