MKG attended today’s shootaround, and it looks like Cal is trying to use him as an example of what the current team should play like. Sounds good to me, we could use a guy or two with his spirit and motor. Show them how it’s done, Michael!
Big thanks, as always, to Kentucky Wildcats TV on YouTube for all their awesome UK videos.
EDIT: Kentucky Wildcats TV has added another video showing snippets of the shootaround plus more or less the same video as above.
As many of you know, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist broke his hand on December 3rd and will reportedly be out for 4-6 weeks, so he will most likely not play again until the beginning of next year. So far this year, MKG has been averaging 9.1 points per game, 5.3 rebounds, shooting at a 50% clip from the field, and averaging over 26 minutes per game. Most of his numbers are slightly up from what he averaged last year. He’s one of the hardest workers out there, so I am sure his numbers will continue to grow throughout what is bound to be a long NBA career.
