Last we heard from Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, he was coming clean about losing to a certain middle-aged hoops icon in a one-on-one game. On Wednesday night, the Charlotte Bobcats' rookie threw down an absolute filthy, one-handed slam dunk over Greg Monroe.

Catching the ball at the elbow with the shot clock running down, the 19-year-old swingman took matters into his own hands, scaling the Piston's pivot, and throwing down a dunk worthy of the Costacos Brothers.


This emphatic hoop pulled the Bobcats within 96-95 but the Pistons escaped with a 105-99 win, thanks in large part to Monroe's 10 fourth-quarter points.
