Former Kentucky Wildcat Michael Kidd-Gilchrist said in a recent interview that he believes the Wizards will be a playoff team if they draft him:

“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.

One thing that Kidd-Gilchrist does not lack is heart. We have all seen him throughout the year, showing off his talent, and his willingness to work hard to help his team. He plays hard no matter what. Another side of Kidd-Gilchrist is now being revealed, he is a pretty confident kid. He may even come off as arrogant at times. Especially during his pre-draft interview, when he replied "I think I'm one of a kind" , when asked what NBA player he thought had a similar game to his.
