The problem with Mcadoo is that when his jumper is falling, it makes his entire offensive game better because his man has to respect the shot, and his quick first step makes him very effective as a face up threat. Put that with his great size and looks the part of an NBA player, which is why everyone started proclaiming him to be the next top 10 pick from UNC after he put together a few quality games.starting for an injured Henson last year

The trouble is that Mcadoo's entire offensive game falls apart when his shot isnt falling- his defender starts sagging off and Mcadoo, trying to be the go to scorer he is not, tries to force a drive anyway and throws up an off balance shot in traffic. He doesnt have a go to move when that jumper isnt falling- he isnt a good ball handler and his post moves are limited. Which makes him a poor option for a go to player, as others in this thread pointed out

I can agree with that. He can't nail that jumper consistently though. So either work on your ball handling and post moves or your jumper. To the Duke fan. We almost won in Cameron if we didn't shoot 30 some odd% in the 2nd half and miss 5 straight free throws. Yeah i think we can take Duke at the Dean Dome.

Was hoping Zeller and Henson would teach him a thing or two about putting his back to the basket and teaching him that hook shot (and to not flop when playing defense)... Unfortunately we have a PF/C that wants to play like a SF
