Just like he did in college at Villanova, Cunningham is playing center again. Yep, he's Marc Gasol's backup in Memphis.
The Grizzlies even think well enough of Cunningham at the backup 5 to have waived a fellow former Blazer, Brian Skinner, who's older than dirt.
Anyhow, I never understood why many folks thought he should be a 3. Cunningham's natural position is the 4, while he went through college playing the 5. Never, however, did he show an ability to effectively play the 3, particularly on offense.
I'm now starting to see this with people commenting on Nicolas Batum, who is not, was not, nor ever will be capable of competently playing the 2. Like with Cunningham and the 3, Batum's offensive skill set doesn't fit the positional requirements needed to play the 2.
