UNCERTAIN PATH: Early-entry ex-UNC star McAdoo in NBA playoffs

North Carolina forward J.P. Tokoto’s recent decision to forego his senior season and enter the NBA Draft surprised a lot of people. Not James Michael McAdoo. McAdoo faced the exact same choice last year — come back to UNC for his senior season or embark on an uncertain path. Even after being undrafted and spending most of his rookie year in the D-League, McAdoo said recently he was happy with his decision to go pro. Of course, it helps that he was speaking from the locker room at Golden State, the No. 1 seed in the West, which enters the playoffs at home today (3:30 p.m., WTVD) against the No. 8 seed New Orleans Pelicans.
