Nike EYBL All-Atlanta MVP: Cade Cunningham

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/03/19, 5:15PM EDT


Cade Cunningham entered the EYBL's first session with two lofty goals in mind: go 4-0 and earn Most Valuable Player.

Not only did Cunningham pull off both feats.

He made it look easy.

Cunningham dazzled for the Titans in Atlanta resulting in some impressive four-game averages: 25.5 points, 62.1 FG%, 5.6 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 2.0 blocks, 1.8 steals, and 2.0 turnovers. He made good decisions. He was efficient. He was entertaining. Best of all, he makes everyone else better.

"Cade is a different type of player than most players," said Texas Titans head coach Greg Gober. "It's because he always helps make everyone better without sacrificing his individual play."

Cunningham formed a deadly duo with Second Team All-Atlanta performer Greg Brown III, and Gober loves what the duo brings to the table.

"They both complement each other and play really well with others," Gober added.

As far as Cunningham goes, he is objectively one of the most versatile players in the EYBL. He can break you down with the ball, on the block or in transition, and his ability to facilitate is amongst the elite.

Gober added one last comment on Cunningham and wanted it to be capitalized. It'something that he already knew, and the basketball world is now certain of.

"Cade is SPECIAL."
