How to describe the way Michael Kidd-Gilchrist looks in his sharp new Charlotte Bobcats duds?
I'd say it looks like he wishes he was wearing a different jersey.
But, maybe I'm just projecting. It would be strangely satisfying to watch winners like Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist do some winning at the NBA level too, turning around a franchise that's reached embarrassing lows and seems long overdue for some achievements that are at least respectable.
If I had to start rebuilding with a rookie, though, I'd be pretty excited about doing so with Kidd-Gilchrist. I don't even care if he lives up to all his potential, because I know he's going to work hard and do a great job no matter what.
And, he'll put on a good show in the process.
Of course, if he does live up to his potential, he could become the biggest superstar in his draft class. But, seriously, no pressure.
That's the other nice thing about MKG. He's cool under pressure, and I think his casual smile to the camera suggests as much. He looks like he's been there before.
