121205_mkg_main Somewhat lost in the career years being had by UK's starting All-Star players is the fact that many other Wildcats have greatly improved their pro games, too. 1. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 9.9 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game. And he now has his own burger. MKG It's the appropriately named Motor Keeps Going burger, sold at The Cowfish restaurant in Charlotte. From the company Facebook page: "When you order Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's Motor Keeps Going (a half-pound turkey burger, on a sesame bun, made with raclette, spinach and fried leek with hot pepper jelly with a half a vegetarian sushi roll and sweet potato fries) through the end of April, The Cowfish will donate $5 from every sale to A Child's Place, one of Kidd-Gilchrist’s favorite charities."   2. Nerlens Noel is averaging 8.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, 1.6 steals, and 1.5 assists per game. Former All-Star Grant Hill sat down with Nerlens to see how his year was going. Remember - G. Hill used to sport the high-top fade, too. 3. Patrick Patterson is averaging 8.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and is shooting nearly 42 percent from three-point range. And while his team is in a slide, Patterson has taken it on himself to shoulder more of the rebounding load. The Raptors are 2-1 in the last three games, and Patterson has upped his average to 11 rebounds per game.
