UNC's McAdoo to enter 2014 NBA Draft

Posted April 3, 2014

University of North Carolina junior forward James Michael McAdoo will forgo his senior year of college basketball eligibility and enter the 2014 NBA Draft, university officials said Thursday.

McAdoo said he’s grateful for the opportunities he’s had at Carolina and plans to return to finish his bachelor’s degree.

“I just feel I am ready to play at the next level and excited about that challenge. I had chances to go after my freshman and sophomore years but was more excited about coming back to school then,” he said. “Right now, I am excited about fulfilling my dream to play in the NBA and do what I have to do to take that next step.”

The Norfolk, Va., native scored 1,232 points and pulled down 640 rebounds in 108 games as a Tar Heel. He averaged 11.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in his three seasons, including 14.3 points and 7.0 rebounds the last two years as a starter.

He earned second-team All-ACC honors as a sophomore and junior.

This season, McAdoo averaged 14.2 points and 6.8 boards in leading UNC to a 24-10 record, a tie for third place in the ACC regular-season standings and the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

    It's very conceivable to get your degree in 3 years if you are on a full basketball scholarship. You have 2 summer sessions each summer and you can start working on it before freshman year and end the summer after junior year. That's 4 summers of 2 sessions each in addition to the 6 regular semesters. Very conceivable to finish an undergraduate degree since all your college expenses are covered.

    Must have run out of classes to take....and not have to attend to get "grades."

    It took me four for my degree, but I actually had to attend class....and I learned the correct spelling of "yours".

    Nope, that is correct. UNC has never had an impact athlete flunk out. Not going to happen over there. And in fact, drive thru that campus roll your windows down and they'll toss a degree in your backseat.

    One thing is definitely a fact: He did not "flunk" out. He could not do this if he tried.

    I wish him the best. Hope he can improve. He seemed to be going backwards each year. His freshman year I thought he was the future of the Heels program. Each year after he seemed to slowly trend worse. I'm sure he'll get the proper coaching to make him a better NBA player.

    If he hasn't hired an agent, he still has the option of returning to school next season.

    As a dedicated UNC fan, this is GREAT news. He couldn't leave fast enough! Yes, for his own good he is leaving too soon, but be probably knows his odds will be even worse next year because he really isn't NBA material - he can't shoot basic free throws! Leaving UNC early will make room for much better player to fill his lack-luster play. Sorry to be harsh, but the truth is the truth.

  • littleriver69 Apr 4, 2014

    Why?? He's not good enough. Must be broke and needs the money.

  • Whistling Dixie Apr 3, 2014

    This makes sense with his playing time next year. he was OK, but not the cream.
