    This guy, if he keeps his stats consistent, is definitely a top 5 pick in this coming nba draft. He has all the tools to be a good player. He is a good athlete, he can knock down shots,  he hustles and shows leadership. But what i really appreciate about the guy is his character and body language on the court. whenever he’s on the court, I notice he’s very active at the offensive and defensive end. If this guy goes back to kentucky next year, He has a good chance to be the National POY. He’s ceiling could be a Grant Hill (at the peak of his career, not the old and injury prone grant hill)

    about a month ago and it lasted for about and hour lol. I said MKG would be taken in the draft infront of his teammate Terrance Jones. With the way MKG has been playing I think it’s safe to say I won that one. He does have a broke J, but there has been so many recent players who got to the league THEN worked on there shooting: D Rose, Westbrook, and Turner to name a few; so he should be good.

     DX already has him 3rd i would take him in 3-5 too..he is just a sure thing to be good..he might not has Andre’s or Anthony’s ceiling but im  much more guaranteed that i will see Mike reaching it..

     

    he is great defender rebounder all around player has crazy motor(sometimes he screams louder after good play even more than the teammate who made that play lol) he is athletic fast handles really well for a sf is agressive slasher and he is improving his jump shot and overall he is scoring 13 a game on probably the deepest team in the country and he is going to be the youngest draftee in this draft so i wonder why he can’t become a good scorer on the next level plus if you watch UK games you know he has very nice court vision, so his all around offense is there already..

     his biggest plus IMO is that he’ll change the culture of the team he goes to. Those teams picking in the top 5 usually aren’t use to winning and aren’t use to winning. Gilchrist brings all the intangibles to change the culture of his new team.

     Michael is the best basketball player in the draft. He understands the game very well and he steps up his game in big games, he hustles and has a knack for getting rebounds, and is a solid playmaker.

     

    To me not taking this guy in the top 3 is a big mistake.

    Plays a great all around game. Will not fail in the L. Leadership skills are strong and desire to win even stronger. Will have no weakness once the J is efficient.

     I hope the Wizards get this guy.  He would be perfect for their team in terms of attitude change/adjustment.  Also a winning mentality to go along with John Wall.  He may not be the perfect fit as far as basketball skills to play next to John Wall as he can’t shoot that well.  But this kid can really change the dynamics of this team if they scoop him and get rid of Blatche.

     I think he is good, but he is a lil overrated. He needs weight to be able to compete in the league. I think allot of people are seein the great things he does and not looking at the things he needs to work on, like shooting and shooting off the dribble, yeah he is a hustler and a great athelete, but i will throw a name out there that everyone should remember…. COREY BREWER. do you guys remember how good he was at Florida?? so many people were saying the same things about him and i see allot of similarities between him and MKG. i think Kidd can become a Gerald Wallace type player (glue guy), but i see Corey Brewer 2.0.

    The corey brewer comparison isnt the same. Brewer was more thin and had less heart than Kidd Gilchrist and people seem to forget that Brewer was projected to be a mid to late first round pick in a weakl draft and ended up rising up the board with a strong NCAA tournament.

    I really believe that Kidd Gilchrist will be a strong player in this league. He has a good foundation of skills and he has the hard work to improve them.

    The team he ends up on is always important. The teams that i think would be good for him: Nets, Wizards(if he starts), Toronto, Detroit(if he starts).

    I also think he is a lil overrated espically if you think his ceiling is Grant Hill….Hill came into the league as a guy who would become the face of the NBA ,he won the all star voting over Shaq as a roookie ,he also won his secnd year over MJ and led the league in tripple doubles in his second year.

    I dont MKG will ever be able to do that

     yeah people are overrating this kid, MKG is really just a glue guy at best. i see Corey Brewer, maybe Iggy but i think Gerald Wallace is what his peak will be

     first of all, there is nothing wrong with Gerald Wallace, if the draft were re-done, he would be worthy of a top 5 pick, as the poster suggests MKG could be.  2001 draft, Brown, Chandler, Gasol, Curry, and Richardson.  Wallace has had a better career than all of them except Gasol.  In fact, out of the 24 players that were picked before Wallace (who incidentally only played one year in college), only 3 have had better careers.  Gasol, Z-Bo, and Joe Johnson.  So if the draft were re-done….Wallace would be the 4th pick based on what he has become in the NBA.

    To say MKG’s ceiling is Grant Hill is a stretch, but the fact of the matter is, we really dont know once he is given time to mature mentally and physically.  If a GM thought his ceiling was that high, he would go no less than #2.  Hill was a 4 year college player, like Brandon Roy…..he was NBA ready from day one.  MKG is not on that level, but in about 3 years in the league, he could be.  Expecting him to come into the league and be an all-star is far fetching.  Expectations of him being a perennial all-star is not.

    @Surve I agree with your logic 100% but Jason Richardson during his Warriors days was really good and Wallace has had some injury issues. Remenber Charlotte brought in Richardson that one year to be the scorer and go to guy Wallace wasnt. I’m just throwing it out their it’s not neccessarily clear cut between Wallace and Richardson.

    So what does that translate too? It will be the same thing with Barnes and MKG. Some GM”s will value the scorer while other GM”s will value the Gerber (Multi-Tool) While other GM”s will still think a guy like Tyson Chandler is more valuable because of the defense and offensive efficiency he is on offense.

    But I think MKG is a better scorer then Wallace ever was because he shows the ability to take lesser defenders off the dribble and hit a spot up shot. Remenber G Wallace could of been a top 10 pick out of high school had he been able to hit a barn door on his jumper. And the only reason he fell after one year at Alabama was because he could finally hit the backboard but not the rim. It took him awhile for that to come along. Whereas MKG already has the ability to atleast keep the defense somewhat honest.

    Time to copypasta what I said in the other thread, Taylor Gang.

    FAIL SO HARD UNIVERSITY SON.

    You could throw MKG in a wheelchair and he’d still offer superior strength, rebounding, heart, and motor to Brewer.

    How can you compare the two? They have absolutely nothing (besides defensive prowess) in common besides being tall individuals who play basketball. Usually when making comparisons, you aim to have the two players be somewhat similar, y’know?

    If I were drafting for the Cavs and I had the 3rd or 4th pick I would look at MKG if Davis and Drummond were gone.  I think he would do very well with a great young point guard with a solid young power forward inside (Tristan Thompson).  He would be a better fit than Jared Sullinger. 

    It looks like the draft is coming down to the top two picks (Drummond vs. Davis) then 3 wing players in the top 5 or so (Harrison Barnes, MKG, and Jeremy Lamb).  After that you have Perry Jones who could go anywhere from top 5 to 15 then a bunch of solid players such as Jared Sullinger and Austin Rivers who could really go anywhere after that, based on team need and workouts.

     yeah, I know its not clear cut between Richardson and Wallace, was just making an argument.  You can argue that Richardson and Jefferson have been better, that puts Wallace at #6 if the draft were redone.  I am just saying to Taylor Gang that if MKG turns out to be Wallace, thats not a bad thing and how is he overated if his ceiling is Wallace??? Do people see another Scottie Pippen in him?  I have compared him to Wallace before and if thats his ceiling, I think that warrants a top 6 pick…..particularly if people are saying Harrison Barnes’ ceiling is Deng and PJIII’s is Lamar Odom, then how is MKG overated? lol

     you are right and MKG is one of those guys who is bigger than he looks.  on one of the last games they played, cant remember, maybe Vitale or somebody…but one of the commentators were saying that during pregame workout they were with him and he is a big guy, much bigger than he looks on tv.   he’s got a pretty good frame on him and a nice set of shoulders.  I dont think he needs to put on much more weight at all.
