With his 17 points on 8-13 shooting, future North Carolina Tar Heel James McAdoo shared co-MVP honors of the McDonald’s All-American Game with Kentucky recruit Michael Gilchrist.

“Just a dream come true, first and foremost just to be in the game, but I just went out there with the mindset to make shots and grab some rebounds,” McAdoo said.

From the looks of it, McAdoo will be a perfect fit at UNC. Especially, if he gets invited to UNC Chi Omega sorority formals, like current Heels Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall.

NBA Draft Stock Report: McDonald’s All-American Game Edition

Am I really doing a NBA Draft Stock Report on kids that have not even graduated from high school and will not be eligible for the draft for another year? Yup.

The McDonald’s All-American Game is like the Super Bowl for high school basketball players with NBA scouts flooding the United Center to get a look at some of the potential top prospects for the 2012 NBA Draft.  Even though it is a lot like the NBA All-Star Game– nothing more than a glorified pick-up game where defense is usually non-existent, it’s still a great venue to see how some of the top recruits stack up against equally talented players.

Besides, when I went to the 2008 game in Milwaukee, I fell love with Tyreke Evans’ game and started praising his pro potential.  And well, that turned out okay didn’t it?  Here are some players who really stood out and should be top prospects in the 2012 draft.
