The Michael Kidd-Gilchrist thread

Glad to see mkg getting some recognition. Cause as a huge UK fan I have to say he was over-shadowed by davis. which is understandable when you look at davis's resume'. But I knew mkg would be a major impact where ever he landed. Just glad it was in N.C. Hopefully they can build up some talent around him and our pro teams success might be equal to our college teams success. Personally i don't care to much for the nba but he could bring enthusiasm to the state and recapture my interest.

Maybe he was overshadowed in the state of Kentucky or as a UK fan by Davis. But being an outsider looking into the team, no smart person doubted the skills and talents the KIDD had. He's playin very well in the first 3gms of his career and we're very fortunate to build a franchise with him.

And we're, we'll myself am not done yet with any UK players. I love UNC, Duke, State and Wake but how is Nerlens Noel coming along? Have college preseason started yet? I'd love to add another UK player in Noel since we got screwed by David Stern and loss out on Davis.

maybe if youre just a simpleton that only look at points per game...he just makes the team better. Only player to have a positive +/- in all 3 games

his per 36 numbers are nuts 9.5 rebounds 2.4 steals 2.8 blocks.

FYI many years ago...one of our own Gerald Wallaces greatest career accomplishments was that he averaged 2blks and 2stls per game and he was the only noncenter to ever do it (and iirc the only 2 who had were Olajuwon and Robinson). MKG is almost doing that now in 25minutes per game as a damn barely 19 year old rookie. Extrapolated to starter minutes, let alone the 40+ those guys played, MKG gets that easily.

MKG is pretty much as good as prime Gerald Wallace right now. As the weeks go by and Dunlap increases him to 30+ minutes youll see

No gerald wallace was a much better shooter than mgk is right now. And thats part of the problem. Hes just a hustle/ effort player adding to a team that already had a 2 defensive minded starters at the time(hendo and biz). As attractive as he may have been there is no way in the hell mj should have made that pick,when clearly this team needed a scoring theat and a superstar type player.The team was clearly scoring on the lower end of the nba ppg last season and people like u were like, hey lets draft a defensive guy.

People like u need take off the homer goggles before charlotte no longer has a franchise.

Yea, okay.

Wallace was a really good player for us, but it took him until his 4th season to start producing anything.

    • Just another reminder the guy you voted for and the party you affiliate with is failing to govern and is going to get impeached in the near future. Your gonna need a lot of creativity to make your life bearable in the coming future. Down with Trump Down with Russia  
    • I finally was able to watch it last night.

      I thought it was a good episode.

      The trouble is that it has only been about the second or third good episode out of the second half 8 of this season.

      I like show Negan almost as much as the comic one, and I know that probably puts me in a minority, but I think JDM does a fantastic job.

      Also, show Eugene is easily one of my favorite characters at this point. Comic Eugene was/is kind of boring at times.

      This episode showed what I've been saying all along though, that Rick and Negan are rooted in the same character. Rick is more supported by the individuals in his group, while Negan is more the totalitarian. Rick is more moral-majority and Negan is more "I make the rules, and you better follow them." But at their base, they are exactly the same. They are just dudes trying to survive a zombie apocalypse the best way they know how, and they are trying to make the world work again.

      I can go ahead and spoil most of the finale, I think, if you want to be spoiled. It sounds pretty epic and intense.

    • I also haven't finished it yet and that's mainly because the guy playing Danny sucks. If they had gotten a better actor I think this show would have been so much better. As it stands now I have two episodes left to watch and no desire to do so, and I am one of those people who finishes everything once I start it.
