Daivd Thorpe on MKG (and other things)

It's an ESPN insider story mostly about why Kentucky would get crushed by the Bobcats. But it has some interesting insights about Kentucky's players. Here's what he has to say about Kidd-Gilchrist: I like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist a great deal; he has a great motor and is terrific in transition. But he's a poor perimeter shooter. He's a top-five NBA draft prospect because he projects to be someone who can make a good portion of his jump shots someday (and the draft is not considered to be that strong on immediate help). Someday. Kidd-Gilchrist is very comparable to New Jersey Nets forward Gerald Wallace, who did not average more than 4.7 ppg until his fourth season in the league. He also has some similarities to Julian Wright, a talented forward who never figured out the NBA game.
