If there's a problem, it'd be trying to deal with 3 players who want the ball in their hands; but for instance the Mo/Delonte back-court worked well with LeBron because they carried some of the playmaking load, could get LeBron easy scores, and could play off of James.
Cade Cunningham is not an elite finisher , athlete or ball handler even though he is above avg as a playmaker , There is no chance he impacts the game like Lebron EVER. But he can out smart most opponents and would be a nice addition at the point.
Maybe I should actually watch Cade play ... but it just seems premature to slot a 6'8" college player with all around skills averaging 3.6 apg with 4.2 turnovers as our primary point guard unless the goal is to try to force feed another player in to becoming what we want rather than what they're ready to be.
for starters if he is actually 6'8 then he grew 3 inches since last year which is possible but probably not. I think he might be close to that in shoes.But he aint 6'8 on the scale
regardless the sell on him to me is his impressive basketball iq for his age to the point that hs and college defenses dont even phase him to the point of orchestrating the offense BUT that is with him being a first option scorer on every team he has been on too.
If he is a sf in the NBA great, I think he might be a little more athletic than given credit, so it could work.
