The Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Lakers could not be further apart when it comes to the current form. While the Nets are ruling the Eastern Conference with their dream team, the Lakers are languishing with their stalwarts absent. However, Dennis Schroder believes that they can still compete with the Nets to the best of their abilities.
In a recent video that emerged on Instagram, Schroder can be heard saying, “Nets in four, my a**”. He was responding to a comment made on the internet that the Brooklyn Nets will win the series in four games if they meet the defending champions in the playoffs.

The Nets and Lakers have had a couple of run-ins this season. There has been animosity in the air whenever these two sides have faced off against each other. Recently, a fight broke out between Schroder and Kyrie Irving, a testament to the intensity of the games.
With star players like LeBron and AD sidelined due to injury, the LA Lakers have found it difficult to cope with the fast-paced game of other teams. However, players like Schroder and Drummond have held the fort and not let their team slip down the standings.
Even the Nets have had their share of mishaps during the season, LaMarcus Aldridge had to retire due to unforeseen circumstances and James Harden is sidelined for a few weeks. Moreover, players like Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant are yet to find the top gear after returning from their respective injuries.
There is no denying that both teams, on their day, are enough to strike fear into their opponents’ hearts. There is abundant talent and individual brilliance on display. If these two sides meet in the playoffs, it is certain to become one of the modern classics.
