After being traded to the Rockets in February, he injured his shoulder and was ruled out for the remainder of the season. But when the Celtics won the East, Schroder had nothing but respect for his former squad as he got himself a Celtics tattoo on his leg. Fans on Twitter reacted to Dennis’ tattoo.

Schroder had spent most of his career in Atlanta where he played the best seasons. Dennis is still a great backup scorer. He would’ve been part of this championship team, had he not been traded. The Rockets are his fifth NBA team that he’s played for. His former team has finally been crowned the kings of the East, but it would be much more exciting to see them win it all.
