I thought it was a mouthful. James Michael McAdoo, not just James McAdoo. And honestly, I couldn’t figure out why the newest Tar Heel would want the announcer to include his middle name every time he dunked or made a jumper. Maybe he wanted to stand out? As a highly touted recruit headed to UNC, maybe he wanted to be remembered as more than just another James. But the story behind the name is much more interesting and highly emotional. It wasn’t himself James Michael McAdoo wanted to be remembered.
