I cant be the only person who finds the announcers saying 'James Michael Mcadoo' irritating. I'm fully convinced he would be a better player if he went by 'Jim Mcadoo' or perhaps 'J.M. Mcadoo' since the team alrady has a PJ and JP

Just to note, per UNC it's official that Hairston has a concussion. Not sure how severe it is though.

Simmons doesnt play because he isnt particularly good at basketball. Being slightly better than Hubert doesnt make him starter material

He's the best rebounder on the team, he doesn't take unnecessary shots, he can make free-throws. The guy is a good basketball player for his position

He is not a fluid basketball player, but he is a solid basketball player and has a good jump shot.

He isnt a good defender and he doesnt shoot because he isnt good at it. I'm fine with him playing the minutes that he does because he is a competent player, but if any big guy needs more pt its Brice Johnson, the best post scorer on the team

But Johnson doesn't have that good of a defense either... and can't rebound that well. I believe he does have way more potential than Simmons but neither should be starting

McAdoo starting to come on strong, if he just drives and posts up 3 feet from the basket he is a solid basketball player lol.

This 5hr energy commercial is extremely gay and one of the worst commercials I've ever seen. It makes me want to never buy one of those things again. I want to superkick that guy.

P.J. will most likely miss the game Saturday, but I think Les will be back on Saturday.

Difference is Johnson has room to grow on defense, he's already the 2nd best shot blocker on the team (yeah thats sad) and he is good at staying in front of his man even if he cant stop him in the post. Simmons is a better rebounder, but this team already rebounds well (when PJ and Reggie hit the glass like they have lately).

But the biggest difference is Johnson adds a whole new dimension to the half court offense- the ability to throw it in the post, which is how Roy traditionally runs the offense. Sure he probably doesnt deserve to start yet, but neither do any of the other big men, so fug it I think he should start. The team next year will be better if he gets more pt now

Very solid win. Good to see the team play more consistently, no giving up big runs and going cold for long stretches

sometimes JMM reminds me of Sean May, and then sometimes he reminds me of Ed Geth.
