Dennis Schröder has awkward reaction to Lakers trade for Rui Hachimura

Now that seemingly every NBA player has a podcast, Dennis Schröder has recognized a market inefficiency: Sure, we could listen to an hour-long recording of him talking with a co-host about the fun he’s having. this season, but wouldn’t. Wouldn’t it be more fascinating to see him react in real time to sending Kendrick Nunn to Washington DC with two second-round picks and a trade of second-round picks in exchange for Rui Hachimura?

If the latest clip from his stream is any indication, it’s a commendable effort, as it’s absolutely mesmerizing and must-see footage:

For those who can’t watch with sound, the clip begins with Dennis finding out the specifics of the trade from the comments section, which for the less Gen-Z leaning amongst us I understand is basically just the Woj or False alerts from Twitch streams.

“What business? Rui? Oh no. Surely not. Rui for Kendrick Nunn? Oh my God. I need to text Rui. I need to text Kendrick Nunn.

After Dennis gets up from his desk setup, we get a seamless jump cut of him already sitting in his chair, after which he says the following:

“He’s crazy. The NBA is a business. Crazy.”

Who needs post-game press conferences or player-hosted podcasts when you can get that kind of candid, unfiltered reaction to an exiled Washington Wizards colleague in real-time on Schröder’s stream? Not me, that’s for sure. I will only visit DennisSchroder on Twitch for all my future NBA news and analysis needs.

The only other thing I know? I will definitely help Dennis with a subscriber from his daily goal of 100. At least as soon as I understand how Twitch works.
