It's only a passing mention, most of the article is about Tristan Thompson.

Wall Street Journal: Bobcats rookie Michael Kiidd-Golchrist's shot is blocked 15.7% of the time, most in the NBA.
In Cho I Trust
I'll take it to mean what I see on the court. Rookie goes up hard for basket, gets clobbered, no call. Block in the stat book.
Into the crevasse!

im not even a MKG homer by any stretch but the refs treat him like shit. this doesnt surprise me. I bet Kembas up there as well
Stands to reason that a wing gets blocked at the rim more often than a big man simply because he's smaller. Also stands to reason that a wing with no jumper is going to take a higher percentage of his shots at the rim. So this shouldn't be a surprise
Not surprised his game is all about taking it to the rim regardless of who's down there...and he doesn't get too much help from the refs...which hopefully will change next season
I would be curious to know what percentage of those blocks were jump shots outside the lane. Why doesn't someone get on that.
He does get a fair amount of his jumpers blocked because he takes to long to get it off. Between his wind up and that hitch, there is just more time for the opposing defender to get their hand up.
needs to use the jump hook a little more, he will figure it out. We need to spread the floor a little more for him too.
