Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored a career-high 25 points Saturday night during the Bobcats overtime win over the Mavericks. The most notable points came on this coast-to-coast basket where he lost his shoe, jumped off his sock-foot and scored with the foul. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. MKG was one of the best picks coming out of this past year’s draft. It’s early on in the season and the dude is going for 12 and 7 with a bunch of other stats sprinkled in there. Awesome that he jumped off his sock foot….
