Michael Gilchrist (HS)

6'7" 210
Small Forward
2011 High School (Kentucky is the most likely destination)

Only a junior, but the best prospect in the country. 6'7" and still growing with astounding athletic ability and a 7 foot wingspan give him unreal potential. Already fairly polished, but still has a ways to go. Can put it on the deck, hit the jumper, dunk on you, defend, block shots, he does it all. Kid is very competitive and very well coached. Look for him to play at Kentucky for a year before being selected #1 in 2012.

This thread was pretty buried. Anyway...

The things Kidd-Gilchrist has now (ultimate motor, toughness, the ability to defend multiple positions, leadership) are harder to duplicate. He just might be a Gerald Wallace clone, or he might be a saner version of Ron Artest. But if we are talking ceilings, I think his is Scottie Pippen. Pair him with an elite scorer, and I think he'll have a few rings by the time he retires.
Those are incredibly strong words. Ford thinks that MKG could be the second best player on a multiple championship team if paired with the right "elite scorer". Wow.

But that's just me.
