REPORT: Anthony Davis ‘Felt Frustration’ With Dennis Schroder Last Season

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis was reportedly unhappy with one Lakers player last season.

According to Bleacher Report’s Eric Pincus, Davis was frustrated with former Lakers point guard Dennis Schroder throughout last season. Schroder signed with the Boston Celtics during the offseason.

Per an NBA source familiar with some of the Lakers’ struggles through the 2020-21 campaign, Davis felt some frustration that he wasn’t getting the kind of looks in the post with Dennis Schroder running the point compared to those he received with Rondo a year earlier.

While Davis may have been frustrated with Schroder, he did have a decent season with the Lakers last year. In 61 games, Schroder averaged 15.4 points and 5.8 assists per game. Notably, Schroder’s 5.8 assists per game were the second-highest average on the team behind only LeBron James.

However, the Lakers did have a down season with Schroder on the roster, finishing only seventh in the Western Conference and getting bounced from the first round of the NBA Playoffs by the Phoenix Suns.
