Does Cade Cunningham deserve Rookie of the Year?

Does Pistons guard Cade Cunningham deserve the Rookie of the Year after a very good rookie campaign?

The Pistons have clearly been bad this year. Weather you're like me and watch every game and follow the team closely, or your just a fan of the team and only follow the record, you know there bad. There has however been many highlights for such a sad year, the main one being Cade Cunningham. Cade was a very clear star out of High School. A top player in the country and had an offer from everyone. Cade chose to attend OSU. [Oklahoma State University] Where he dominated. And when the Pistons won the lottery, I instantly knew he was the guy. And damnit he has been just that. Lets look at why Cade Cunninham should be heavily considered for the rookie of the year award.

First it should be said, the current two front runners are Evan Mobley and Scottie Barnes and that Cade is considered 3rd place as of now.

Against the Cavs this year the Pistons and Cade played solid going 2-1. Losing by 4 just a few nights ago. But in all the games Cade, outplayed Mobley. Cade in the second game carried the Pistons to a victory when Mobley didn't step up. If Cade was on a better team he would probably be the MVP frontrunner. I say that because of the playmaking ability he brings to the table. He is just sadly surrounded by a terrible basketball team.

In the Pistons and Cavs final meeting last night Cade and Evan Mobley both posted double doubles.

From Cade that was 15 points and 10 rebounds.

In prior meetings Cade was simply better, and he showed it outscoring Mobley in those meetings. This season cade has stayed pretty healthy.

Cade Cunningham season stats:

17.1 Points

5.8 Rebounds

5.4 Assists

40.8% from the field

32.3% from three

Regardless of the results of the award is that Cade has had a very good year and seems to be the absolute of this city's basketball team. He is a good locker room guy as far as we know, and he makes me and hopefully you feel optimistic about the Pistons future. To close things I have to ask you?
