We're back with a look at another one of the key returning players from our 'Cats, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Weight: 232 lbs
Years Pro: 1
2012 Per Game Stats: 9.0 points, 1.5 assists, 5.8 rebounds, .7 steals, .9 blocks, 1.3 turnovers
If you ask anybody what the next step in developing MKG's game is, they would say that he needs to become a more consistent jump shooter, and new shooting coach Mark Price has his work cut out for him. On shots outside the paint (midrange jumpers and three pointers), MKG shot an awful 28.9%! That number is really going to need to increase this coming year if the Bobcats plan to play Al Jefferson and Bismack Biyombo at the same time, because neither of them have an outside jump shot and opposing defense can pack the paint due to the lack of shooters on the floor, which will lead to contested lay-ups, forced midrange shots, and a stagnant offense overall.....
