Just a few days after Michael Kidd-Gilchrist said that he lost a one-on-one game with Michael Jordan he pulls out one of the more impressive dunks of the NBA season. Check him out in the video below Posterizing Greg Monroe of the Detroit Pistons.
The Pistons would get the last laugh and beat the Bobcats 105-99 behind the 19 points of Monroe. I would personally go with the dunk though.

While the Feb. 21 NBA trade deadline was very dull for any professional basketball fan, it was even more bland if you’re a fan of the Detroit Pistons.

Tweet When the Charlotte Bobcats selected Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the second-overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, they knew they were getting a kid with a ton of athleticism and energy. He put his athletic ability on display on Wednesday night against the Pistons with this dunk: Greg Monroe probably had to call somebody and [...]
The Bobcats lost their 41st game of the year, but Michael Kidd-Gilchrist gave fans something to cheer about in the 4th quarter with a mean throw down on Pistons’ Greg Monroe:
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist plays for the Bobcats, meaning he has to do something amazingly good or amazingly bad to get people’s attention.
Last week, he did something amazingly bad when his 19-year-old body couldn’t take down just-about-50-year-old Michael Jordan. But this week, the rookie has redeemed himself somewhat with a stellar dunk.
Kidd-Gilchrist, who is averaging 9.1 points...
“One day you might look up and see me playing the game at 50. (Crowd Laughs) Oh don’t laugh. Never say never. Because limits, like fears are often just an illusion.”

He had all the physical gifts in the world and...
