A three-time NBA scoring leader, McAdoo was the 1973 Rookie of the Year and the 1975 NBA MVP when he averaged 34.5 points per game. The sweet-shooting big man took his offensive repertoire to the Los Angeles Lakers and became a key member of two championship teams in 1982 and 1985. During his14-year NBA career with seven different teams, McAdoo scored 18,787 points and averaged 20 points or more in seven seasons. After his NBA years, McAdoo played in Italy for seven productive seasons including six in which he averaged better than 20 points per game.
