Bob McAdoo '75
Written by johnnykazz4l
Bought for: 100,000 MT
Strengths: — Elite inside scorer — Incredible all-around defender, all areas of the court. — 98/98/98 dunking with 95 vertical & HOF Posterizer badge allows him to destroy the rim and anyone attempting to stop him — I used a diamond shoe that has +5 Post Fadeaway, so he is remarkable in the post and moves quickly and fluidly with up-and-under moves, and also has the option to hit — Hits open mid-range shots consistently in pick-and-pop scenarios.
Weaknesses: — Does not hit the three-point shot with enough regularity to use him as a stretch big. However, I have found that I make about 2 of every 10 attempts with this card. He is not as useless as others at this task, but naturally, there are much better options if you need a stretch big for five-out offense.
Recommended Strategy: — Traditional inside-scoring, paint-protecting big man. His lateral quickness, espescially with a shoe upgrade, allows him to defend extremely well against stretch bigs. Due to his height and excellent perimeter defense, he is extremely well-suited for playing the 4 against 5-out offenses, and 9 times out of 10 will use his 95 strength to destroy these stretch bigs in the post.
Use if: You want an elite traditional big
Don't use if: You are trying to compete with a 5-out offense
Bottom Line: We finally got a McAdoo legend card. You really can't go wrong, just be aware of the type of offense you are trying to run before putting him out there.
