From Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com: “The first time I read about Michael Gilchrist was in a Philadelphia newspaper. It was July 2007. He was 13 and talking about his desire to one day play for John Calipari at Memphis. Few days later, I was hanging around late on the first day of the LeBron James Skills Academy, talking to Chris Douglas-Roberts, who played for Calipari at Memphis.”
