Before he was Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the 2012 NCAA champion, second pick in the NBA draft, and Big Blue Nation’s man-crush; he was Michael Gilchrist, the skinny kid with braces in the school yearbook.

    Best in the business, right there. MKG is the man, even when he was a boy.

    He is a once in a generation player. We were just lucky to have him a year. I 100% believe that his recruiting class was the best ever. The only freshman dominated team to ever win a title.

    I remember way back when MKG was a boy…. now that he’s 18, he’s an old man.

    You know his momma had a hard time paying for those braces but I sure am glad she made the investment.

    MKG and Davis combo may never happen again. But I’m damn glad it happened here.
