The lightning-quick Schroder is undoubtedly the future of German basketball and luckily, the guard has repeatedly expressed his desire to represent Germany whenever possible. He showed in a qualification campaign that was far from smooth that he can already be a leader at the tender age of 20 as he led the team in scoring and assists in 2014. He was a bit turnover-prone but finished with great precision inside and outside the arc. What followed was a break-out NBA season that saw the youngster claw his way into Atlanta's rotation, playing nearly 20 minutes-a-night and scoring in double figures to go with his 4.1 assists. He also proved doubters wrong about his shot, sinking 35%, a respectable percentage in the NBA. The prospect of seeing him play alongside Dirk Nowitzki is what makes German fans reminisce of times when Germany was a regular contender at EuroBasket.
