After watching this dude I’m literally dumbfounded at why people want us to rack up a pointless .500 record and miss out on this dude. There is no 1 in a million Kawhi trade waiting on us if we choose to tread mill.

Better for us honestly. Just in case we get the 2nd, or 3rd pick. If he falls to us I'll gladly take him. lol

I don’t think it’ll affect his stock much. Simmons didn’t play in the tourney for a worse reason (his team had a weak record) and still went 1st overall

For real. Our best chance in getting a player of this caliber is through tanking and drafting him. He’s impressive on both ends of the floor

At times I've been a little skeptical of Cade cause he looks kinda slow and far too unathletic to me. But I think he just moves at his own pace and surveys the court similar to Luka.
He isn't on his lvl but his shooting off the dribble will be the main factor on whether or not he can be on that same trajectory as doncic

That left hand pass on the fastbreak at 3:07 was niceee. His shot looks good too. He’s pretty well rounded and I love that he actually plays on both ends of the floor. Kids a stud

I LOVE Jalen's game but I just worry he's too skinny.

edit: And he gives me Zach Lavine vibes.


he seems a lot longer than lavine, he also seems bigger but i'd have to see the measurements. Lavine didnt have this game when he was greens age, i honestly feel like green is so talented its a cant miss.

also look at what morant is doing and hes a toothpick

Greens measurables will leave a lot to desire IMO. Last I saw he was 6'5 about 180 atm. He can't still grow so I'm not too concerned. I just need to see him in the g league win Kuminga. I need to see them against real competition compared to highschool. With that said Green plays the way you'd want your prototypical two. Also like to add greens athleticism is off the charts.

Based on the limited videos I've watched of him, Cunningham looks really good.

Cunningham's combination of size, shooting, playmaking is basically what every NBA team wants in a prospect. Teams won't be able to target him on defence because of his size and mobility. Teams won't be able to sag off him because of his shooting. Most importantly, he's a primary playmaker type of player that the Raptors are dying for. His game will probably look better at the next level too with more spacing and better players next to him.

I can understand the Ben Simmons comparison with the size and playmaking but the shooting is a massive difference especially in the playoffs.

Outside of Kuminga, Mobley is a really talented C prospect that would thrive in the modern NBA.

Suggs has started to cool off.
I think his team being so good is almost a negative for his stats.

Didn’t seem to effect Simmons too much,

Cade is taking it easy. He’s not gonna put his body on the line for a 1 and done season.

Dude is built in that Brandon Roy mold where he can get to any spot on the court and score with ease.

Cade seems to be turning the ball over too much. Maybe he can get to an A/T of 2 in the pros like Ben Simmons?

I think Brandon Roy’s game was much more refined and tighter but I can see the comparison. Cunningham lacks the explosiveness that many stars have but in exchange, he shows craftiness and patience that Roy had.
