With the departure of Jeff Teague via a trade, former backup point guard Dennis Schröder is now the man for the Atlanta Hawks. Known for the single blond streak in his hair and his speed and length on the court, the German-born Schröder is preparing for the 2016-2017 season, which promises to be his most challenging yet.

To boost his self confidence as he takes over starting point guard duties, Schröder flew back to Germany, donned a terrible disguise and signed up to play in a 3-on-3 outdoor basketball tournament without disclosing his identity or background. Calling himself “Afro-Man,” Schröder did exactly what most NBA players would do against mere mortals: he dunked all over them.
We hope Schröder apologized to that man after extracting his soul from his body, or at least gave him a couple tickets to see the Hawks play next season. No need to ruin a countryman’s life like that, Dennis.
