Video: Paige getting used to new goals

North Carolina has some new goals inside the Dean Dome. Some fresh backboards, rims, and nets for the 2015-2016 season. Check out the videos below from GoHeelsTV of Marcus Paige both christening the new baskets and nailing threes. (Carolina Blue)

Marcus Paige Named Third Team All-American By CBS Sports

Marcus Paige, North Carolina Tar Heels, Senior Guard: Paige was hampered by injuries last season and watched his points-per-game average and field-goal percentage drop. Still, the 6-foot-1 guard is the top returning scorer on a possible No. 1 team. He averaged 14.1 points and 4.5 assists per game last season. (CBS Sports)

Video: 1-on-1 with NBA Champion Harrison Barnes

Predicting the top 20 big men for the 2015-16 college basketball season

As his once rail-thin frame continues to fill out, a big senior campaign could be in order for Brice Johnson, particularly if his offensive game diversifies some. Kennedy Meeks can certainly be fun to watch with his penchant for long outlet passes, post skills and touch in the paint. As he continues to reshape his body, it should be another strong year for UNC’s leading shot-blocker. (Sports Illustrated)

Vince Carter reminds us that Father Time is undefeated

During Tuesday night’s game against the Houston Rockets, Vince Carter reminded us that one day; after all of the many hopes we’ve crushed with corner threes, the countless bodies we’ve left in our wakes with devastating pick and roll alley oops, and the many more lives we’ve ruined with debilitating posters; the inevitable will happen.

Bob McAdoo is the forgotten superstar in the city of Buffalo

When discussing the greatest athletes in Buffalo history, Bob McAdoo has to be on the list. At the zenith of his career, he was the best player in the NBA not named Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. And even then, McAdoo’s play was good enough to earn him an MVP in 1974-75 even with Abdul-Jabbar hunting for the same title. McAdoo was an offensive nightmare. (The Spectrum)

Warriors’ James Michael McAdoo positioned for more playing time

One of the untold stories from the Warriors’ 2015 championship run was long coaches’ meetings about James Michael McAdoo. The rookie forward ended up playing only 10 postseason minutes, but McAdoo thrived so often in practices that the coaching staff probably spent more than 100 times his actual minutes logged trying to figure out ways to get him on the floor.

Video: Wayne Ellington talks UNC

Wayne Ellington starred at UNC for three season, finishing his Tar Heel career by helping Carolina win the 2009 National Championship. As a three-year starting shooting guard in Chapel Hill, Ellington averaged 14.7 points for his career while shooting 46.3% from the field and 39.7% from three. Ellington, the 2009 Final Four Most Outstanding player, is now the newest member of the Brooklyn Nets. (Carolina Blue)

Three Larry Brown stories

Larry Brown is one of the most interesting, frustrating, entertaining and infuriating figures in the history of the sport. He’s a basketball savant. And he’s entirely unreliable. His selfishness is self-evident, but he’s also one of the great teachers of the game. He’s perpetually anxious, uncommonly detailed, overwhelmingly successful and unceasingly unhappy. Three Larry Brown stories come to mind. (NBC Sports)

Predicting the top 20 wings for the 2015-16 college basketball season

Justin Jackson arrived in Chapel Hill last season as a consensus top-15 recruit in the class of 2014, but he didn’t garner as much attention as some of his freshman peers. That’s likely to change this season, because Jackson—a possible first-round pick in this year’s draft had he declared—should be one of the top scorers on a national championship contender.

2015-2016 Charlotte Hornets Player Previews: P.J. Hairston

Coming into the 2014-'15 season, I was incredibly high on P.J. Hairston. Sure, he had gotten into some trouble at the University of North Carolina, but he played well in the D-League, and seemed to fill a team need. Well, sometimes we make...miscalculations. Let's take a look back at Hairston's rookie season, and where he fits in this season. (At The Hive)

Dean Smith's chair to be used by chemotheraphy patients

Legendary North Carolina coach Dean Smith’s old office chair is going to be repurposed in an awesome way. Dr. Mark Graham, who runs a hematology and oncology clinic in North Carolina, purchased the chair for $15,000 at Roy Williams' annual breakfast benefiting cancer charities and will use it for his chemotherapy patients. (NCAA.com)
