The Los Angeles Lakers did not enjoy a great post-season last year as they lost to Phoenix in the first round. Much of the blame went on their new signings’ poor performances. Notably, Dennis Schroder faced the heat for his poor showing against Phoenix.
Previously, Schroder was looking for a $100 million-plus contract with the Lakers. However, the Lakers did not offer him that. Now, as he has signed a one-year deal with the Celtics for a much lower sum, former Laker, Shaquille O’Neal, did not wait to speak his mind.
Well, we all know that if there is any drama, Shaq is the perfect marketer for it. He took to Instagram to highlight how Dennis rejected an $84 million offer from the Lakers and signed a $5.9 million deal with the Celtics. Moreover, the Lakers deal would have kept him for 4 years, potentially adding a couple of championships to his resume.
