Dennis Schroder was named the MVP of the tournament which was rightfully deserved of him. The Toronto Raptors star averaged 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game in the tournament. He also managed a game-high 28 points in the final against Serbia.

“The German Rondo” has added a prestigious award to his collection which seems very likely to grow a lot bigger in the future. Schroder is one of the most talented players in the NBA and already shows signs of great success. His passing skills and shooting ability are exceptional, which make him a key asset for both the Raptors and his national team.

Now as the World Cup ends, not much time is left before the new season of NBA kicks off.
