Hawks' Dennis Schroder combines soccer, basketball for trick shot

Wednesday June 24th, 2015

Dennis Schroder may be a professional basketball player, but growing up in Germany, he also knows a thing or two about soccer.

The Hawks guard showed off some fancy footwork and a few headers to score a very unconventional basket.

Schroder posted the shot to his Instagram account and in the caption he challenged Bayern Munich and German national team star Jerome Boateng to try and top his hybrid soccer/basketball trick shot.

Perhaps the NBA rules committee can look at adjusting the kicked ball rule this offseason so that Schroder can try some of this out in an actual game.
