I really don't think I'd say he has a "great" handle for his size. By that same token, I dont think he's going to measure out as tall as some people expect.
MKD has been growing on me more and more each day.
Why Pepperz? just curious as i know that sometimes a prospect will grow on me for no reason, I wont read anything or see him play but he just...does lol

Let the CHOsen one get to work!
So many people here practically worshipped Crash for the type of player he was for Charlotte. When people compare Kidd-Gilchrist to an NBA player, it is Crash. So there is an automatic endearing of him to Bobcat fans. Now Crash took a few years to become the player we loved, but then he became accident/injury prone, got a bit older, and was traded. Kidd-Gilchrist has a higher ceiling in my estimation. Younger, less expensive, not injury prone and someone who can become Crash Plus for Charlotte. So if we dont get Davis, I'd be very happy with MKG.
I am really liking MKG's toughness. He takes the ball to the rim over and over and doesn't seem to mind the contact. If a defender plays him rough he plays rough back, but never stops going to the rim. This guy would be Larry Browns wet dream. Oh yeah, plus he makes his free throws.
He is an excellent at rebounding for his position. His foot speed on defense is so good he usually guards the opposing teams pg. If he develops a shot. If he can make the type of improvement Hendo has made, this kid is going to be great.
If we don't get the first pick and end up taking MKG, I'd still be pretty happy. I just get the feeling that he'll get a jump shot in the NBA and become very very good. Thats about all he needs to take off.
at this point he is a cross between a very young crash and tony allen. not for me with a top 3 pick.
