You don’t need me to tell you about Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s heart and determination. You see it on the court every time UK plays, and a lot of us even try to mimic his attitude by following the motto, “What Would Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Do?” in our every day lives.
It turns out, Darius Miller and Anthony Davis do the same. They know MKG better than anyone, and even they are still amazed by his motor. Take for instance, Miller, who has been around more NBA talent than a Kardashian, said today that MKG is unlike any teammate he’s had before.
“Out of all the players I’ve played with, he’s at the top. He’s like the engine to the team,” Miller said. “What makes Mike so special is the passion he plays with. He’s a great teammate.”
Anthony Davis agrees. He doesn’t even know how his fellow freshman phenom brings it the way he does, every single day.
“He never gets tired, ” Davis said. “He always stays after practice and works out. The rest of us don’t see how he does it. He’s always in overdrive.”
Davis and his teammates feed off that energy in the games, too.
“He brings it every game. He is always pumping up the crowd and pumping up the team.”
So, what fuels Kidd-Gilchrist’s continuous motor? Anthony Davis thinks he might have the answer:
“He loves the Lion King,” Davis said. “He tries to watch it every night.”
