By now, you’re probably well aware of the online bullying campaign targeting newly-minted Boston Celtics guard Dennis Schröder for spinning the wheel of fortune and landing on a sack of marbles, a few baseball cards, and a dead parakeet.

The 27-year-old point guard walked away from an $84 million deal to play with LeBron James and his Band of Veteran Egos to accept a paltry one-year, $5.9 million deal with the Boston Celtics.

NBA Twitter is reacting to Schröder’s current situation as if he’s been banished to play handball in Kazakhstan rather than joining one of the best franchises in sports who are having themselves a plump little offseason.

Still, sports are made for overreacting and meme-making, so let’s aggregate the best Schröder content created by people who probably received stimulus checks.

When the Celtics win a title next season and Schröder signs a multi-year extension, I want to NBA Twitter to repent for its sins.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
