On Cade Cunningham, a Luka Garza comp and other observations – The Athletic


Here are some thoughts and observations after the Pistons’ 111-91 loss to the Rockets in their second game of the Las Vegas NBA Summer League …

Cade Cunningham gets it

They tried to hype it up like a prizefight. The No. 1 vs. the No. 2 pick. ESPN had promos like it was Mike Tyson vs. Lennox Lewis.

Jalen Green trolled playing Detroit rap music on Instagram Live heading to the arena. Every time there’s been a microphone placed in front of him, he’s mentioned how he felt he should have been a Piston, not Cade Cunningham.

Cunningham, on the other hand, has sat quiet. He never once fed into the hype.
