WATCH: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist goes coast-to-coast…with one shoe!

I have been aboard the Michael Kidd-Gilchrist train for a while now, to the extent that I picked him to be the rookie of the year over his former Wildcat teammate, Anthony “The Brow” Davis, before the season. That proclamation may be premature, and may not come to fruition, but that doesn’t mean the kid won’t be special.

Special players make special plays, and this possession may be the epitome of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. With his team struggling in the 4th quarter, Kidd-Gilchrist grabs the rebound and takes the ball coast-to-coast for an and-1 lay-in to get his team within a reasonable deficit. That’s not all. If you watch the play closely, you will see that Kidd-Gilchrist loses his shoe at mid-court, and STILL makes the play happen.

Watch:

Kidd-Gilchrist finished the game with 23 points and 12 rebounds, and helped the Bobcats defeat the Dallas Mavericks in overtime, their first win over the Mavericks in franchise history.
