Arguably the best decision Michael Jordan has ever made in an executive position, was drafting Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The former Kentucky Wildcat is now proving his worth in the NBA. The league released a statement today declairing MKG as Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month. Here are his stats through October/November:
MKG was the only rookie to rank in the Top-1o in scoring (10.9 ppg, fifth), rebounding (6.5 rpg, sixth), assists (1.5 apg. eighth), steals (1.2 spg, fourth) and blocks (1.3 bpg, second). In November against the Mavericks, he posted career highs in points (25) and rebounds (12), and lead his Bobcats to the victory.
Congrats to MKG on the award, there are much more to come. The kid is a winner! #WeAreUK
