LOS ANGELES (dpa) – Nationals player Dennis Schroeder wants to stay connected to professional basketball in order to become an athlete.
“I definitely want to play until 40, at a good level,” the NBA professional Los Angeles Lakers player tells Kai Pflaum’s YouTube channel.
“I want to play again for FC Braunschweig,” added the main shareholder of the Bundesliga club, Basketball Löwen Braunschweig. The 29-year-old, who was born in Braunschweig, would also like to play for a non-German club beforehand: “Maybe in Madrid or Barcelona.” Regarding his commitment in the United States, Rule estimated: “I probably have another good three, four, five years here. And then I want to go to Europe and I want to win a championship with Braunschweig.”
At the age of 40, he should have finished at the latest, and then he wants to focus on entrepreneurial activities.
Schroeder’s career plans also depend on fellow teammate and NBA star LeBron James. “I talked to LeBron about how long he wanted to play. And LeBron actually said he wanted to play five, six, seven more years. And he’s going to be 38 now.”
Schroeder trained in Braunschweig and matured there into a Bundesliga player. At the age of 19 he achieved success and moved to the United States in the NBA to join the Atlanta Hawks.
