James Michael McAdoo Could Continue To Hurt North Carolina

This hasn't been a banner season of North Carolina basketball.  From the PJ Hairston thing to the losing in the Round of 32 thing and the Rashad McCants thing, the Carolina brand has taken huge hits. James Michael McAdoo may actually hurt the Tar Heels harder, however.The Hairston thing was his fault.  Losing to Iowa State to end the Heels season did place hope for a 2014-15...

James Michael McAdoo declares for NBA Draft; joke about his Draft stock (PHOTO)

(UPDATE: James Michael McAdoo declares for the NBA Draft. Kind of surprisingly) North Carolina big man James Michael McAdoo was as blue chip a recruit  as blue chip can be. He was MVP of the 2011 McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago before he came to Chapel Hill. Back then he was known as James McAdoo, not James Michael McAdoo.

Which is more important for the Browns, the right coach or quarterback?

Why Hondo's near triple-double seasons were better than Oscar's

Guest post By Cort Reynolds It has become common knowledge that Oscar Robertson once averaged a triple-double for an NBA season back in 1961-62. This impressive feat has long been trotted out as evidence that the Big O was the greatest all-around player of the pre-1980 era.   Robertson, in just his second season, averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and a league-best 11.4...

McAdoo still developing into UNC's go-to guy

James Michael McAdoo is still learning how to be North Carolina's go-to guy, from facing high expectations as an NBA prospect to overcoming defenses aiming to frustrate him. At times, he's been an athletic big man who beats defenders to the rim, flies into the paint to crash the boards and reliably knocks down a face-up jumper. At others, he looked tentative and content...

Ernie DiGregorio Celebrates 39th Anniversary of Setting NBA Rookie Record With 25 Assists in Single Game (Video)

Ernie DiGregorio burst onto the scene in the NBA in 1973, and he was gone almost as fast. For basketball fans outside of New England, DiGregorio’s rise to immediate stardom as a rookie with the Buffalo Braves came as a shock. The diminutive point guard out of Providence College led the NBA in assists and free throw percentage in 1973-74, justifying the Braves’ decision to draft...

James not first to join stars in search of title

MIAMI -- When LeBron James arrived in Miami before last season, Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo had a presentation of show and tell. McAdoo is one of the few guys on the planet who at least has somewhat walked in similar shoes as James. Likes James, he has won an NBA MVP and a scoring title (actually, three). Like James, he had toiled for many years without winning a title. And...

2011-12 Los Angeles Clippers Preview

The team's first head coach was Hall of Famer Dolph Schayes and its initial "star" players were forgettable names like Bob Kauffman and Don May until the greatest Brave of them all laced them up -- Bob McAdoo. A scoring machine, McAdoo led the Braves to their first playoff appearance in 1973-74 when he averaged 30.6 points per game and 15.1 rebounds.
