There is a good chance that Cade Cunningham will have a good NBA career, but it seems though he has higher goals than just "good" for his career. In a recent episode of The Old Man And The Three podcast, Cade Cunningham told JJ Redick about his goals for his first season and his career, and it seems as though he wants to become the greatest at his position, which would suggest that he

Cunningham's position is listed as PG/SG, but as he is 6'8, he will likely be a SG. Being the greatest at his position would mean he has to surpass legends such as Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. While those are lofty goals, it is good to see Cade Cunningham confident in his abilities. There's no doubt that Cade Cunningham could develop to be special, and hopefully, he is put in the position to do so.
