Additionally, the German point guard is the leader of the ideal five-man unit for the World Cup.
After the game against Latvia in the quarterfinals of the FIBA World Cup, Dennis Schroder stated that it was the worst game he had ever played in his life.
A couple of days later, on the same stage at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, the German ’17’ group stole the show.
After leading his team to an 83-77 victory over Serbia as the captain, he has won the title of World Champion and been named the Most Valuable Player (MVP), which is awarded to the player deemed to be the greatest during the World Cup.
Schroder has been, and always will be, an exceptional player in every sense of the word.
After the terrible game against Latvia, he went on to deliver two fantastic games against the United States (24 points, nine assists, and three three-pointers), and against Serbia (28 points, 53% shooting, two three-pointers, and a ‘crossover’ to Avramovic that sealed the result).
Because getting back up is an essential part of his daily routine.
His father, Axel, passed away when he was 16 years old, and he honored a commitment he had made some weeks before.
He would put all he had into basketball, and if anything terrible were to happen to his family, they would be rescued thanks to his skills on the court.
Because of his tournament record of 19.1 points, two rebounds, and 6.1 assists on average, he has been elevated to the pantheon of the best players in accordance with the regulations of FIBA.
He was the leader of a Germany team that did not suffer a loss.
Naturally, Schroder was also chosen to serve as the captain of the tournament’s ideal squad, which won the competition.
Next to him was Luka Doncic, the captain of Slovenia, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a key player in Canada’s bronze medal-winning team, Anthony Edwards, the best player for a United States team that had lost its edge, and Bojan Bogdanovic, who disappeared while Serbia was playing for the World Cup in the second half of the final in Manila.
Only one award will be missing from the collection of the new point guard for the Toronto Raptors, and that is the Most Valuable Player award for the championship game.
Franz Wagner, who finished with 19 points against Serbia and is another of the mainstays of a Germany team that has enough quality in the present and potential for future to be a candidate to reign for years to come, was selected as Germany’s representative by FIBA.
