MKG named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month

Congrats to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who has been named the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month.

MKG was the only NBA rookie who ranked in the top 10 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). On November 10 against the Dallas Mavericks, he posted career highs in points (25) and rebounds (12) while leading the Bobcats to a 101-97 victory. Here are his highlights from that game:

Miss you, MKG.

    This team is missing the MKG smile. All these guys look like they are mad all the time.

    This should’ve been posted well before all the UofL and UT nonsense. Congrats to MKG! Much deserved. I watched him last night in the Knicks game and he kept it close with his hustle and leadership.

    #4 – ???? Kept it close?? They were up 10 at once, up 6 most of the fourth…. It took 5 straight Bobcats Turnovers for the knicks to Tie it up, Only to lose to a heart breaking JR Smith last second shot!!! Arghhh……. and I gave up my season tickets to the game!!

    Happy for MKG; wish he were a WILDCAT this year and not a BOBCAT! Looks just as he did last season only with a different uniform.

    I’m almost certain he has found the Bobcat’s gym.

    The BBN e-card about MKG perfectly sums it up: I miss him so much!! It is great to see him shining in the NBA, though.

    I think I have a new favorite player. In fact, he may even be enough to make me give a sh*t about the NBA again.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. I miss him and his smile too.
    Love that he’s having success.

    #9, 10, Hope you’re not complaining after all the FSU hoe pictures postd today. Fair’s fair.

    How cool is it that it says “Cats” across his chest still? That’s a rhetorical question.
