PIstons fans rejoice on social media after winning Cade Cunningham contest

Detroit Pistons fans were thrilled when the team received the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and the right to sign Cade Cunningham.

Represented by the legendary Ben Wallace in the 2021 NBA Draft Lottery, the Detroit Pistons won the biggest prize of the night: the right to first pick the 2021 NBA Draft.

As one of the three worst teams in the NBA last season, Detroit had a 14% chance of landing the No. 1 pick, which many assume will be Oklahoma State Cowboys star Cade Cunningham. Needless to say, Pistons fans finally have a reason to be excited about their team’s play this year, as it has resulted in the team earning the right to draft Cunningham, who will only work for the PIstons.
