Default Re: Bobcats roll the dice, draft Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Associated Press:


Kidd-Gilchrist, a Somerdale, N.J., native selected No. 2 overall, is expected to be a big part of that future.

"I just want to win basketball games," Kidd-Gilchrist, who lost just four games last season while helping the Wildcats to a national championship. "The past is the past around here."

Added Taylor: "I couldn't have said it better myself."

Kidd-Gilchrist and Taylor both play small forward, although they have different strengths.

Taylor is a better shooter, while Kidd-Gilchrist is known as a very solid defender who can cover any position on the floor and is effective in transition, which should bode well for playing in Dunlap's up-tempo offense.

Kidd-Gilchrist comes into the NBA as the youngest player in the league at a ripe age of 18. "He's just a kid," said his mother, Cynthia Richardson. "In reality, he should be going into his senior year of high school."
