Most of you might not know this, but I actually grew up a huge fan of the Detroit Pistons. In fact, I grew up such a huge fan that I have a Ben Wallace and Darko Milicic jersey.

However, the Pistons have been really bad over the past few seasons. They’re one of the worst teams in the league, which is why they were in a position to draft Cade Cunningham.

Will he turn the team around? I have no idea, but he’s definitely a very solid basketball player. He’s a hell of a star.

He’s not a guaranteed hall of fame caliber of player like LeBron James was coming out of high school, but he can still play with the best of them.

Cunningham has all the talent in the world, and he’ll now be tasked with bringing Detroit back to the promised land.
