    Jalen Rose lauds Cade Cunningham, celebrates academy’s 10th anniversary

    Detroit — Jalen Rose never got to play for the Pistons himself, but he’s been a fan from his years at Detroit Southwestern and playing days at Michigan through his NBA career.

    His fandom may have reached a high when the Pistons got the No. 1 pick and selected Cade Cunningham in the draft last month. At his annual golf outing Monday at Detroit Golf Club for the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy, he spoke of the excitement he had when the pick was announced. 

    “We finally got the No. 1 pick, and the reason why I was happy was because of (Cunningham),” Rose said. “It’s one thing to have the No. 1 pick; it’s another thing to have a consensus No. 1 player.

    “On the floor, (he can) dribble, pass and shoot. He’s competitive defensively, and smooth. I haven’t been this excited for a Pistons draft pick since Grant Hill — and to show you how much I’m a Pistons fan, he got picked before me (in the 1994 draft).”
