Rapid Reaction: James Michael McAdoo Heading to NBA

Earlier this afternoon, star UNC forward declared himself eligible for the NBA Draft later this spring. McAdoo will not be returning to Chapel Hill next year for what would have been his senior season. The forward from Norfolk, Virginia averaged 14 points and seven rebounds in his Junior season and left Carolina having played over 2500 minutes in his career.

Here are some of the reactions from around the Twitterverse to the news of James Michael McAdoo’s early departure.








It will be interesting to see what type of player McAdoo in the NBA.  Years ago he may have been compared to potential candidate for MVP Blake Griffin, but now he will most likely need a few years of development to even have a chance to be a regular NBA starter.
