That funky blond patch of hair on the left side of his head is there because his mother, Fatou – a hairdresser from Gambia – encouraged him to get it in order to stand out in his first season in the German league. He has no desire to be ignored. “I think every time I step on the court, I try to get better. Try to help my teammates win the game or make the best decision I can make,” Schroder told The Vertical. “It’s tough. You’ve just got to stick with it. Coaches, they’re telling me, ‘You’ve got to keep doing it. Now, maybe you’re tired a little bit. You’ve got to do the same thing that you did.’ ”
Schroder had pushed for an opportunity anywhere but it meant more that the franchise that drafted him, the one with the longest active streak of postseason appearances in the Eastern Conference, chose to place him in charge over a more established player. “I was really surprised. But it was my dream and you know, I worked hard for it,” Schroder told The Vertical. “That’s why I made it clear to everybody that’s my goal, to run a team and I’m ready for it. They trusted me, you know — my teammates, coaching staff, organization. Put the keys in my hand, for this team…I didn’t have no fear.”
