The 1-8 Detroit Pistons, the Eastern Conference’s lone team without at least three wins, are one of the worst teams in the league right now. But this is Year 2 of their “restoring,” and they’re preaching growth with their young players. It has been a bumpy ride but one with bright spots, too.
Cade Parker Cunningham is an American professional basketball player for the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association. He’s currently in his rookie year with the Detroit Pistons. Pistons nine-game review: Cade Cunningham looks like he belongs (though he’s struggled to shoot, like the rest of the team). And we’re starting to see a different Killian Hayes emerge.
Watching Cade Cunningham’s game in slow motion helps you appreciate how polished it already is. The Pistons’ No. 1 pick knows when the ball is in his hands, anything is possible. Cunningham, 20, isn’t the fastest player on the floor, but it doesn’t prevent him from being a step ahead. Cade processes the game and has the Pistons in what seams like a good rhythm based upon Fridays game at Little Caesars Arena.
The Pistons’ first No. 1 pick in half a century will be just fine. More than fine. And likely even more than that.
