McCaw had the national stage to himself last Saturday. Kerr rested all his main guys in San Antonio and McCaw was left as one of the few primary playmakers in the ABC showcase game. He was aggressive. But he played poorly, missing all 12 of his shots. After the game, he was distraught in the locker room, staring at the floor in his jersey for 30-plus minutes as teammates and coaches tried to console him. “That was probably the worst basketball game I’ve played in my life,” McCaw said. “Knowing that the whole world is watching you, it’s a totally different atmosphere. If I would have done that in college, no one would’ve known except for the local media. It was hard.”
Now, with McCaw starting in place of Kevin Durant, some of Golden State’s elder statesmen have encouraged him to be more aggressive. This advice helped spark a memorable performance in Thursday’s loss to Chicago, when McCaw scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting, nabbed two steals and corralled a career-high-tying four rebounds in 29 minutes. “My teammates are telling me to be a little bit more assertive on both ends of the floor,” said McCaw, who is averaging 10 points on 54.3 percent shooting in five career starts. “Just be a little more vocal, and bring energy because we’re missing a lot without KD. Guys have to step up to fill that void.”
