Bobcats Select Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Jun 01 2012 02:41 PM carolina-chuck Charlotte Hornets
I'm jumping on this bandwagon now! Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, imo will be a STAR in the NBA. Probably the safest pick for us at no.2 also. Many believes MKG will make an immediate NBA impact. Gilchrist is an NBA ready player whose skills should help him start from day one. Some have think that he is an All-star waiting to happen. His work ethic is also tremendous. Someone who will do all the dirty work and clean up the mess.

MKG is not a great range shooter, but one who will drives hard to the basket and earn those hard points. He will only improve his shooting in the pros. A great defender and rebounder forward who would be a huge upgrade for us over guys like Derrick Brown, Thomas, Moon, Najera, and White. He will be someone who could defend guys like Lebron and Wade in the future. Many people think we need a big man or so, but HELL! every position is a need for us. We need help at every position. Can't go wrong taking a guy like MKG. Gilchrist should be our first priority to building a championship team for the future. He shows up every game with his intensity and never give up mentality. Will only help Kemba and Biyombo grows.

Gilchrist has been compared to guys like Gerald Wallace, Andre Iguodala, and Scottie Pippen.

DRAFT PROFILE:

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
Kentucky - Freshman (Born 1993)
Small Forward
6'8" 228lbs


The Good:

-
great size for the small forward position
- 6'10" wingspan
- elite defender who is good/big/long/athletic enough to guard multiple positions in the NBA
- relentless driver who is terrific at getting to the hoop and finishing
- extremely hardworking, intense player
- always gives 100% effort on both ends of the floor
- big game experience
- terrific rebounder for his position
- is a great scorer in transition which should translate well to the pros



The Bad:

- poor outside shooter - will need to improve his shooting range to keep NBA defenders honest
- still extremely young (won't turn 19 until September) so might not be ready to contribute immediately
- needs to work on his ball-handling
- probably doesn't project to be a "superstar"


NBA Comparison:

*Andrei Iguodala/Gerald Wallace* - both in terms of playing style (do-it-all) and level of play (All-Star)


The Skinny:

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is probably the player who did the most to improve his draft stock this season (at least among the elite prospects). He now has a legitimate shot at being the second name called by David Stern in June. While he might not project to be a NBA superstar, he does look like an All-Star level player and a mainstay on the NBA's All-Defensive Team.

This is our guy. Good Call Chuck.
Hes not a good shooter but damn its not like he is amnemic like some of you people are making him out to be.
MKG's per 40's are pretty good in my opinion

MKG Per 40
15.3 points per game
9.5 rebounds per game
2.4 assists per game
1.3 assists per game
1.2 blocks per game
Still boarding?

Those are solid numbers.
The only professional teams that exist in the state of NC now as far as I'm concerned are the Hurricanes and Panthers.

Don't care how you feel about it.
He plays defense, one thing we didn't do at all last year.

I also feel like people are underrating Gerald Henderson/Ben Gordon, and are forgetting/selling short Kemba Walker.
MKG is a good passer as well, it will ease the transition for kemba to start at point

Thanks for putting public feelings on the internet, then letting everyone know you don't care if we care about said feelings.
Maybe The Oracle will just go away now...

bust


Why'd you get rid of the Pacers avatar? Cuz Bird got let go?
no, cause nba season is over.
I laugh at people who say MKG is a bust and he hasnt even stepped foot on the NBA court yet. Going into the draft, their wasnt a clear #2. Their wasnt a franchise player. MKG's jumper can and will improve. If it does, WATCH THE FUG OUT!

...again, coming from someone who didnt want him, but for selfish reasons.

GREAT PICK BOBCATS

Well, the Bobcats no longer exist, but the Panthers do.
gerald wallace with a s-s-s-s-tutter! good job cho.
"The Oracle" will be sporting a MKG jersey in a season.

He doesn't do anything athletic to wear any of that stuff.
Back to Kidd-Gilchrist. Thats two straight years in a row we took THE leader of a national championship team.
Congrats Cho you've just took a big fat poo in Dunlaps cheerios by selecting this offensively inept gerald-fuging-wallace redux.

I seriously don't understand why we've just drafted this guy. We were soooo much better of going with friggin' Barnes at least he brings outside shooting WHICH DUNLAP OUTRIGHT WANTS.

Jesus christ this team kills me.
this wasnt dunlaps choice. this had the scrub cho/mj written all over it. bad bad pick
