I dont care if he leaves, he isnt a good fit for this team.

I said as much last year- Mcadoo would have been maybe the least accomplished top 10 pick of all time. He was hyped as a pro prospect after 3 solid games filling in for an injured John Henson. NBA teams do not spend top 10 picks on guys with so little production unless they are over 7 feet- Mcadoo doesnt even have good size for a PF

I'll say it again- there is no way Mcadoo would have gone top 10 last year

Dude McAdoo was absolutely a lottery pick last year, the scouts loved him because of his size and athletic ability. He cost himself a ton of money coming back and showing how soft he plays and how he can't consistently hit a jumper.

Marvin williams is close enough. 10 points, 6 rebs. And he was # 2 overall.

Find me a player under 7 ft and averaged around 6 pts 4 rebs, who was drafted top 10

Hint: you wont

Enes Kanter, Jan Vesely, Bismack Biyombo.

I dont see it. People get hyped up all the time as potential lottery picks just to fall on draft day

Let me put it this way: Andre Drummond was in that same draft. He is at least 2 inches taller (lets just say the NBA isnt overly excited at PF prospects that might be 6'8), probably more athletic, is capable of blocking shots, and was SIGNIFICANTLY more productive as a freshman in college. He went 9th. A player who by any objective measure is a significantly better prospect, fell to 9th in the draft, yet you're telling me Mcadoo was a guaranteed top 14 pick?

Yes, that is exactly what I'm telling you. He would've been drafted before Marshall, Zeller, and Henson, Lamb.

Andre Drummond is also 7`0 tall and a C, not PF.

Marvin was not only significantly more productive, he also won a title and had a 3 pt shot.

And rounding correctly would give him 11 pts 7 rebs

Enes Kanter, Jan Vesely, Bismack Biyombo.

Eddy Curry, Kwame Brown, Diop

So high school guys and Euros.

Though if we are going on stats those high school guys were very productive

College production is the easiest to translate to the NBA, which is why you wont find college guys that were less productive

Whatever you think. I guess you're an NBA scout?? Only point that matters is by coming back this year, he blew some serious potential money. No chance he does it again.

Even if he comes back next year, Duke will still own you.

Andre Drummond is 6'10, which is one more reason he was a significantly better prospect than Mcadoo.

What are you telling me? NBA teams dont take undersized PFs who cant produce in college with lottery picks. Period

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
