McAdoo being first team and Burke being 3rd team are both jokes.
Online, on facebook,twitter and a few other sites, i read that alot of people are upset with McAdoo being on the 1st team..But i think people that have him on their 1st team,is basing it on the potential he has....Not his stats from last season..Mc Adoo is my personal favorite for player of the year...
I didnt think Adonis Thomas should be on the All American list...I like Adonis as a player,and he has alot of potential..I see him in the lottery of some mocks,but he has yet to put it all 2gether..He doesnt have a defined position...He's a jack of all trades and a master of none...
Alot of the players that are on these teams right now might not be on those teams at the end of the season...
4 Seniors made the All American list..When was the last time that happened?
I am not digging on McAdoo showing up on the 1st team and having two "true" freshmen (Muhammad/Poytress) on the 2nd team. Sure by season end, they could earn spots on the All American teams, but Muhammad/Poytress haven't played a second on the D1 court yet. They should give those two spots to players that have earned and played some D1 ball already.
Im not too fund of McAdoo being 1st team, he ahs the potential, but he hasn't done enough for 1st team. I think I might've put Isaiah Canaan on 1st team. He's a flat out baller...
Michael Dixon on the pre season 2nd team?
