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?

I dont see it

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
