Jared Cunningham made the right choice.
There were quite a few OSU fans that thought he was making a bad move when he announced that he was going to skip his senior season and enter the NBA draft.
Few thought Cunningham would go in the first round. He did. He was picked at No. 24 by Cleveland but was part of a trade to Dallas. The Mavericks are an interesting team because they could lose guards Jason Kidd and Jason Terry to free agency.
That would require some fast learning for Cunningham, but judging by the improvements he made between his sophomore and junior years, he should be up to it.
