NBA Draft 2012: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Never Saw Michael Jordan Play For Chicago

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, formerly of the Kentucky Wildcats and soon to star for some lucky NBA team in the very near future, was born on September 26, 1993. If you didn't fail elementary school math, you know that would make Kidd-Gilchrist 18 years old.

Michael Jordan announced his retirement from the NBA for a second time on January 13, 1999. Again, if you didn't fail elementary school math, you would know that Gilchrist was five years old when this momentous event occurred.

Kidd-Gilchrist worked out for the Wizards on Friday, which gave Michael Lee of The Washington Post the opportunity to reminisce about a conversation he'd had last week at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.

Enjoy your Father's Day weekend, everyone. We're off to soak our teeth.
