Blogcat's Take, 2/13

Feb 13 2016 12:40 PM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

This has got to be the most tragic week in Charlotte sports since…geez, are we in Rae Carruth territory here? Even losing the Anthony Davis draft pick never hurt me this badly. First, on the biggest stage, the Panthers can suddenly no longer hold on to...

Blogcat's Take, 1/30

Jan 29 2016 06:07 PM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Full disclosure: I tend to write this column on a Saturday morning. It works out well for me, because on the off-chance that I ever make any friends, they definitely won’t want to hang out at that time. So there’s usually a nice window of opportunity f...

Blogcat's Charlotte Hornets Season Preview...

Oct 10 2015 10:21 AM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Sorry I haven’t written in a while, but I’ve been too busy pulling my kicked-in testicles out of my groin. The news that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is lost for the season with a torn labrum made me physically ill; it’s tragic on more levels than the Republ...

Blogcat's Take, 3/14

Mar 14 2015 12:56 PM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Haters, be warned: last night’s Hornets victory over the Chicago Bulls provides the excuse I need to write my annual lover letter to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Longtime readers will know that my outpourings of MKG devotion get borderline homoerotic; such...

MKG: Is this his make or break season?

Sep 11 2014 09:41 PM | InProblematique in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

With a new shot, a skill set that makes any fan in the NBA's mouths water, and lockdown defense at the hardest position in the NBA, there's no doubt MKG is a player who will spend a long time being a valuable player in the NBA. But as MKG begins to ro...

Blogcat’s Season Preview, Part 2: The Wings

Oct 19 2013 11:15 PM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Okay, we’ve gotten the bigs out of the way, and now it’s time to tackle the wings—preferably with JJ Watt, because I’ve seen a more promising group of wings being peed on by a stray dog in a KFC parking lot. With the exception of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist...

Bobcats Obviously Need To Cut Kidd-Gilchrist

Jan 01 2013 10:41 AM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

There was little reason to tune in to yesterday’s Bobcats-Bulls game. First, there would be no Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who was out with a scratched cornea. Second, when they showed Kidd-Gilchrist sidelined on the bench, he was annoyingly not wearing a...

Analyzing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's 2012 Fantasy...

Oct 16 2012 01:52 AM | Kevin in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

I've already profiled Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as an NBA player. I've come to a fluid conclusion; that he's not going to be the savior for the Charlotte Bobcats, but that he will eventually be a huge part of a turnaround. It may take some time, but I fir...

Is Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Charlotte's Savior?

Sep 24 2012 11:00 PM | Kevin in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Kemba Walker might be the answer, but I doubt it. He was sensational at UConn and won a NCAA title, but he was extremely under-whelming as a rookie last year. After all, he's an under-sized combo guard with "barely there" point guard skills. If you...

Will MKG be the 2013 NBA rookie of the year?

Sep 22 2012 07:31 AM | ziggy in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

What are the chances that at the end of this season Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is the player that is awarded the 2013 NBA rookie of the year award. I think it is much, much better than people realize for a number of reasons. His energetic style of play...
