James Michael McAdoo Life

James Michael Ray McAdoo (born January 4, 1993) is an American professional basketball player for Besiktas Sompo Japan of the Turkish Basketball Super League (BSL) and the Basketball Champions League.

He played college basketball for the North Carolina Tar Heels and twice received second-team all-conference awards in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).

With the Golden State Warriors, he has won two NBA championships.

Personal life

McAdoo is an Evangelical Christian. "I just want people to know that I don't play basketball for myself," he said of his faith. No matter what adversities I face, how bad a season is, or even how well a season goes, at the end of the day, I'm playing for a bigger cause, and that's to glorify my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

Ronnie and Janet, McAdoo's parents, played basketball at Old Dominion in the late 1970s and 1980s and moved to Europe, while his older sister Kelsey played basketball at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte.

McAdoo's father was the second cousin of Hall of Fame basketball player Bob McAdoo, who competed in North Carolina and in the NBA. Though McAdoo said he's nicknamed Bob "uncle" and that "my dad's great-great grandfather and [Bob's] great-grandfather are like brothers."

Lauren Elizabeth Adkins, a UNC volleyball player, was married on April 2, 2014.
