Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Says He’ll Cry If Loses in the NBA, Says Wizards Playoff Team With Him

Some interesting quotes from MKG.

To be young and naive is a beautiful thing.

“I want to win games,” Kidd-Gilchrist said last week in Chicago. “That’s what I’m about.”

The prospect of joining a losing NBA team made Kidd-Gilchrist visibly ill, and he admitted that he would probably “cry some nights” if his team is consistently adding notches to the loss column. Unless a non-playoff team moves up to get him at No. 2, Kidd-Gilchrist is almost assured some rough times – but he doesn’t necessarily believe that is the case if the Wizards select him third overall.

“I mean, with John [Wall] and Nene? I think it’s a playoff team,” Kidd-Gilchrist said, matter-of-factly, when asked how he would fit in Washington.

Next season? “I mean, I guess. I think it’s a playoff team,” Kidd-Gilchrist said.

He has the right attitude, but he won’t be crying because the NBA is a grind, can’t get too high or too low. The Wizards do need someone like him.

Don’t know if it will make them a playoff team, but it would make them a better team.
