Magic Johnson Calls Out Lakers PG Dennis Schroder

Los Angeles Lakers great Magic Johnson is never shy to voice his opinion and this time the NBA Hall of Famer chose Lakers PG Dennis Schroder as his target. Magic blasted Schroder for his performance in the playoffs and called him out for his lack of a winning mentality and attitude. 

Johnson met with the media on Friday via a Radio Show and had this to say about what he saw from Schroder this season:

Schroder, I don't think he's a Laker. That's just my opinion. I don't know if they're gonna sign him back or not. I don't think he brings the winning mentality and attitude that we need, and he had a chance to show that in this series, and to me, he failed in this series. But again, if he comes back a Laker, I'm gonna support him, I'm gonna cheer for him and all that, but I just don't think he's a Laker.

Schroder was hard to watch at times this postseason and especially in Games 4 and 5, where he combined to shoot 3-of-22. The native of Germany is slated to become a free agent this offseason and has voiced his interest in staying in LA. He reportedly rejected a four-year $80-million contract extension from the Lakers earlier this season and now you can bet the price has gone down. Regardless of what Schroder makes, it's likely Magic Johnson thinks it's too much.
