Biography

Patrick McCaw was born on the 25th of October, 1995 in St Louis, a city in Missouri, USA. His father has been identified as Jeffrey McCaw and his mother’s name has been given as Teresa McCaw. His parents are on record to have been very supportive of his basketball career, often being in attendance to watch him play games.

Growing up, Patrick always loved the game of basketball and it is not surprising at all that he eventually ventured into playing it professionally. He started his career right from his high school days when he joined the Christian Brothers College High School based in St. Louis. He was admired for his athleticism and speed on the court. He, however, did not stay at Christian Brothers College High School for the entirety of his high school education as he soon transferred to the Montrose Christian School where he was also part of the basketball team. In fact, in his senior year with Montrose Christian School, the athlete recorded an average of 13 points in all the games he played and went on to lead the school to win the National Christian School Athletic Association Division I title.

When he graduated from high school, the young athlete’s records helped him get ranked as the 38th best shooting guard in the entire US. He promptly gained admission to the University of Nevada in Las Vegas where he joined the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels. Patrick played for 2 seasons with the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels and averaged 12.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.0 steals over 65 games.

NBA Career

Patrick began playing professionally in 2016 when he declared for the NBA draft on the 4th of April and got selected by the Milwaukee Bucks as the 38th overall pick. However, for cash considerations, he was soon traded to the Golden State Warriors. During his 1st season with the Golden State Warriors (2016-2017), Patrick demonstrated his prowess and abilities on the court and averaged 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists after appearing in as many as 71 games for the team.

However, even though he was in very high spirits to continue stunning fans with his skills on the court, his 2017-2018 season with the Golden State Warriors was cut short when he suffered a horrific injury during a match against Sacramento Kings. The injury ultimately made him miss the remaining days in the season.

Injury Update

Following Patrick’s terrible injury many fans and players expressed great concern over his health because of the horrific way it happened. Their fear was worsened when it was revealed that his injury had affected his spine and that his movement had been very limited.

For months, Patrick McCaw was off the court, nursing his injury and praying to be back to the game. Having missed the remainder of the 2017-2018 season, Patrick became a restricted free agent, refusing to accept the Golden State Warriors’ $1.71 million qualifying offer and allowing it to expire. He also refused to accept a two-year, $5.2 million offer from the club.

On the 30th of December, 2018, having fully recovered from his injuries and having been in the free-agent market for as many as six months, Patrick finally signed a contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, he played in just 3 games for the Cavaliers before he left and signed with the Toronto Raptors on January 10, 2019.

How He Got Injured

Patrick McCaw was injured on Saturday, the 31st of March, 2018, during a game against Sacramento Kings. As the game progressed into the third quarter, Patrick’s teammate, Jordan Bell, threw a pass to Patrick who caught the ball and made a layup. However, in the process, he was undercut by Vince Carter, a Sacramento Kings’ player and landed very hard on his back.

Patrick’s father was around to watch the match that day and rushed to his son’s side. The young athlete’s fall on his back was so bad that he had to be carried away on a stretcher.
