Dennis Schröder does not seem even remotely interested in signing the four-year, $84 million extension that the Los Angeles Lakers reportedly offered him before the trade deadline. But after an underwhelming stretch that has seen the team struggle even more to score than was expected without both LeBron James and Anthony Davis, should the team still feel comfortable paying him that much?

On today’s episode of “Lakers, Explained” — a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll — co-hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin dove into that question (after first quickly discussing Paul Pierce getting fired for broadcasting a pandemic poker and twerking party).

But then, on a more serious note: Has this brutal few games without James and Davis changed how they see the value of any of the Lakers? They debated that, and then dug in on the Schröder situation. On one hand, this can just be viewed as Schröder trying to get the most money he can, something it’s hard to fault anyone for. On the other, it’s not certain that he can get more than the Lakers offered him this summer, and the team’s recent struggles certainly haven’t helped his case.

After diving into all the complicated dynamics in this situation that could work for or against Schröder, Harrison and Anthony ended the show on a lighter note by discussing the important debate on everyone’s minds right now: How old is too old for an adult to participate in an Easter Egg hunt?
