The GSoM community is ranking theplayers, but we're doing it "Survivor" style, eliminating one player per poll, until we've decided who is the most valuable to the Warriors in 2017 and beyond.
We're referring to the players as "assets." As such, voters are reminded to consider age, salary, injuries, production, potential and overall value to the team (as either a player or trade piece) when making their selections. Basically, you're part of the front office, and it's time to cut the next player.
This positional competition for minutes might seem like bad news for a player who already has struggled to lock down consistent playing time, but a variety of injuries and rehabilitation from surgery have affected those two draft picks, meaning McAdoo has the perfect opportunity to demonstrate to Kerr and Co. that he can be relied upon as a consistent contributor in the 2016-17 season.
fronting his taller, wider, or stronger matchups in the post leaves him exposed to being boxed-out and outmuscled for the board. Sullinger and Jonas Valanciunas easily dislodged him from the post on battles for defensive boards, but against two of the bigger bodies in the league, McAdoo did enough other things well to be a small positive.
. Despite hours of practice with Ron Adams and the collective prayers of Warrior fans, McAdoo’s jumper has not progressed into a reliable part of his repertoire. He is at his best when he can play above the rim and be rewarded for his cuts to the basket. While scoring may not be his strong suit, McAdoo contributes to the offense in other ways, such as by using his large frame to set picks on and off the ball, a major trademark of the motion offense.(70.5 percent in 2015 and 64.3 percent in 2016)
