MKG is Vitale’s ‘Diaper Dandy of the Week’


(Not Michael Kidd-Gilchrist)

Last week it was Kyle Wiltjer. This week it is Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

In his weekly awards on ESPN.com, Dick Vitale named MKG his Diaper Dandy of the Week. Thomas Robinson was Vitale’s Player of the Week, with 30 points and 21 rebounds against North Dakota.

Vitale also tweeted about your favorite UK player after the game:

The kid is unreal. No one in the country brings it like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist does to every game. All heart, all the time.

    Good post, good for MKG getting his recognition. The photo is offensive though.

    Seriously Drew, I don’t know if I can check KSR as long as that photo is still up.
    But getting back to Vitale’s comments — it’s a little premature to say that before conference play has even begun. At the end of the year, Wall/Cousins were better than Davis and MKG right now…

    Dear #1. There’s a thing on Teh Innernets called “Adblock” if you use Firefox. You can move
    any picture you want, yourself.

    Has Raphael Andrades signed to UK yet? I just met a guy in the grocery star parking lot who
    claimed to be his Uncle (I was wearing UK gear,) who said Andrades has “just signed up
    to play for Kentucky”. Hmmmmm. Whoever the guy was, he was excited about Kentucky
    football. Pretty cool comin’ from a guy in Tigers country who had LSU stuff all over
    his SUV.

    I think you have offended more than your fair share of people with that image, Drew.

    Yeah, gotta go with Wall/Cousins here. Or Oden/Conley, maybe even
    Carmelo and McNamara.

    I don’t like to speak in absolutes, so I won’t. I usually don’t comment, but I will. That is one of if not THE funniest picture I have ever seen posted on this site. Well done, Drew Franklin.

    The person in that photo is obviously suffering from a handicap. Terrible photo. Terrible taste. Repulsive and insulting. Worse pic ever in the history of ksr.

    Take it down please!

    17. How do you know? You’d be surprised at how different people can look at an instant.

    I personally know someone who came down with M.S. and she is now incontinent and sliding into total disability, uncontrollably. Doctors cant fix it…it is out of control.

    It has been enormously traumatic for her and her family. She was a really great person, and this thing just happened to her. This person is a major fan of UK, has been for decades.

    I hope to God that she does not open up KSR today…

    Drew Franklin has taken it beyond offensive. The person in this picture is obviously handicapped. It is no “joke” to this person or his family. It is despicable.

    Let’s say best freshman duo since wall and cuz…. They were both 1st team all American I know that doesn’t happen every year….. but you can’t say too much about Davis and MKG. We’re witnessing greatness every game and I hope everyone is taking it in and enjoying them while we have them cause their stint here is gonna be short.

    I agree with majority here, that picture must go.Do you know how bad it would be if the parents of this kid were to see this picture on here? Or any parent that has a kid with a disability for that matter. I have enjoyed your work on here for a while but now I think you’re just another pathetic ass hole.Anyone on here that thinks this is funny are also ass holes.

    Come on Drew, do the right thing and take that down. I love you man, but we’re really supposed to be laughing at a handicapped guy in a diaper? Really?

    I agree with 24. It’s this stuff that makes me lose respect for this site every time I visit it.
