Kentucky Freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Excelling in All Areas for Wildcats

21

Excellent article on why, I'm beginning to believe Kidd-Glilchrist is the #2 prospect in the draft. Add the fact he's really young, and considered most coachable player, a gym rat, and a leader. I really think his true upside is closer to a SF version of Wade or Westbrook than Wallace/Marion. His off ball play goes without saying, his defense goes without saying (holding opponents to 2-18 shooting inside the 3 point line?!). The iso-situational scoring numbers really surprised me. 1.33 points per possession!? He's getting to line nearly 6 times per 36 (excellent for an 18 year old). Not a bad passer. With so many raw tools, already productive play as a young freshman, and all the intangibles scouts and coaches croon over, I think he's a great prospect. and added- Could Michael Kidd Gilchrist Be the Next Derrick Rose?
