UNC Basketball: My Tar Heel Christmas Wish List Part I

Christmas Day, remember being a kid and having the butterflies all night on the eve of the big day?  Waiting for Santa to shimmy down the chimney and deliver you the toys of your dreams from his bottomless sack.

Now we’re all grown up and Christmas Day isn’t about toys and Santa Claus but that doesn’t mean we don’t all have a Christmas wish in our hearts, I know I do, in fact, I have several, here’s my Tar Heels Christmas Wish List for the North Carolina Tar Heels.

A consistent rotation that makes sense

We’re too close to ACC play for head coach Roy Williams to be tinkering with his rotation still, it’s time to find some stability.  It’s time to stop playing everybody on the roster as Roy used to say because you like them, it’s time for the best players to get the minutes they deserve.  The team needs to jell and that time is now.

James Michael McAdoo to get the opportunity to make this team his own

This team does not play inside out because the team doesn’t fully trust it’s post players yet McAdoo is the best player on the roster.  He needs the ball and he needs it on the majority of the trips down the floor in the half court.  Feeding McAdoo early and often will open up things on the perimeter and it will allow him to become the player many expected him to be in the preseason.

Marcus Paige to continue playing the way he did against McNeese State

Paige has had some ups and downs as a freshman but looks like he might have turned a corner with his nine assists-zero turnover performance in the Tar Heels last contest.  Paige still has a ton of room to grow and he won’t realize his potential this season, if he can play like he did against McNeese State this team can get to where they want to go.
