Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 18 Points/3 Jumpshots Full Highlights (12/13/2017)

Are jumpshots a part of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s game now? I’m looking at his shot chart and comparing it to previous years, and the results are inconclusive. Maybe he’s shooting a few more this year? It’s easy to think of him as an around-the-rim-only player, but players his size are basically forced to take at least…

The Hornets finally got another win after winning only one of the previous eight games, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist did his best to shed the fairly-applied “bust” label by going 8-of-9 from the field and achieving the not-so-coveted “4×4” (reaching a total of four in four different stats, much easier than a 5×5). I totally didn’t…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 22 Points/5 Jumpshots Full Highlights (11/15/2017)

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s jumpshot form is still totally borked. I think it’s as borked as it was when he came into the league, maybe a little better. Remember when Mark Price fixed it? I bet as soon as he left the gym Kidd-Gilchrist automatically reverted to his old ways. Nothing to be done about it now….

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you like layups? Use this handy reference to figure out your layup-enjoyment-rating: 1: I’d rather die than watch a layup in an NBA game 2: Maybe death is taking it a little far, but layups really suck 3: Only if a short person is performing…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 17 Points/3 Dunks Full Highlights (1/21/2017)

Before I go all out and call Michael Kidd-Gilchrist a bust (one of my absolute most favorite pastimes), let’s clear something up: MKG is a good role player. Maybe even a great role player. The Hornets are significantly better when he is on the court. He might not ever score fifteen points per game, and…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 16 Points Full Highlights (12/9/2016)

We’re just going to have to face facts here: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will never be a primary offensive threat for any team. Ever. To be such a thing would require having either a go-to post game or a go-to jumpshot; MKG has neither. He will be relegated to scoring garbage baskets near the rim for his…

Last time I was at the gym, just shooting buckets, I decided I would conduct some scientific research. Scientific research in the form of trying to replicate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s borked shooting motion. I’d watched enough clips of it in action to know how to do it: instead of keeping my right elbow nice and straight,…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 19 Points Full Highlights (1/31/2016)

It’s confirmed. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s jumpshot is still utterly broken. You can see it on his first made three. We’ve got a good angle almost directly behind MKG, so it’s easy to see how both of his elbows kind of curve to the outside when he’s setting up the shot. We’re also treated to plenty of…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 13 Points Full Highlights (1/29/2016)

I was getting all ready to resume my mockery of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s jumpshot form as soon as he came back from injury. I had like two whole paragraphs of material written where I basically just rip him and his ugly elbows-every-which-way jumper a new one. Well, now he’s officially back from injury, and he did…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 18 Points Full Highlights (3/22/2015)

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist walked aimlessly through the foggy landscape. All around him he could hear metallic clanking sounds, but they seemed to have no source other than his ears. The only discrete objects he could discern were large numbers of lone bricks scattered upon the ground, some of them broken nearly to dust, others large and…
