Personally, I wanted Harrison Barnes to be drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats; however, I am not mad about Michael Kidd-Gilchrist aka “MKG.” In my opinion, MKG was one of the top 5 college basketball players during the 2012 season. You could argue that he was one of the top three players in the nation. Heck, he was the second pick in this year’s draft.
Some people knock his lack of a shot, but MKG’s strengths are his work ethic, his defense, and his versatility. To be honest, MKG isn’t that bad of a shooter. He may not be a Ray Allen or Reggie Miller, but he can guard and play several positions like Gerald Wallace and Shawn Marion. I actually think MKG is the Matrix 2.0. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is playing the power forward position sometimes.
All in all, kudos to MJ for drafting MKG and trading for Ben Gordon. Power moves, baby!
