Jared Cunningham Breakout Year?
This kid is from Oakland like Damien Lillard and has the potential to be a great slasher/defender for the Mavs. He was hurt most of the season is this his chance to get some run next season?
Breakout year in the D League.
He's got gifts, he's crazy athletic. He should ask for a trade or something, he could be good in a different situation.
What's wrong with his situation? It's not like Dallas has a loaded backcourt
hmm kind of a random player to have a breakout season...i would be shocked if he overachieves next year
I could see him bouncing around the league/ D-League and possibly finding a fit on a playoff team a la Shannon Brown. If he's going to have a breakout year he's going to need minutes and the only way he's going to get those is if he becomes a ball-hawk on defense.
I love his tools.. I would be shocked though of he finds much playing time next season.
I like Cunninghan as a prospect, but I don't see him getting much PT next year. Give him 2 or 3 years and he will be ready to breakout.
If he tries to adjust into an Avery Bradley type roll, I could see him getting some burn.
He hasn't been doing well in the D-league , even Dominique Jones has done well in the D-league
So it depends on your definition of break out ,does it means he can really improve? well he is one of the worst (if not the worst ) drafted players in last year draft ,so yes there a lot of room to improve
But if you think he is suddenly gonna be a player that every body notice?I doubt it
And I doubt it is the situation ,yes Mavs are awful place for young prospects ,but to be bad in our d-league team hasn't happened b4 him ,and he was getting playing time there
He'd probably have a nice season coming off the bench for the bobcats or the magic but really no one else
Hard to say, considering he didnt make much impact last year and Vince Carter is still there too.
confidence is key with all young players. If he can get a good opportunity, and plays with confidence, he could breakout
