How?

The fake brother of Miles Bridges. He's been in the league three seasons, played 227 games and started 160, surprised you've never come across him, lol


tbh just an exaggeration on my part lol I thought this bridges was a bust. He wasn't making any noise and I never took interest in him. The other bridge is a diff story.


This should be reversed. This Bridges is the much higher impact player overall, the other one is an elite dunker and can score.

I know I'm a homer but I think the Nuggets need to give Nnaji some pt.

I always lowkey hated how Mikal never gets love from the media while everyone knows who Miles is even though he's not nearly as good as Mikal but gets that love because he dunks hard :evil:

A bust? He was impactful from day one with his defense. I mean I get it that you haven't heard much because you don't watch the Suns but thinking he's a bust it's pretty ridiculous. Not like he was a top pick

Suns played two great games. We'll see how Nuggets respond in Game 3. Guards are going to have to make some shots though. Not winning WC playoff games scoring under 100 points IMO.

The difference between Denver and other almost-contenders (say Portland) is that you're just starting out with Jokic (and not have enough playoff failures yet). Denver has a bright future but should be wary with sticking with the core if it's not good enough, and pull the trigger sooner than later.

Too bad we won't know how much of a good team their team is this year because of the Murray injury. Jokic is playing godly still but can't do it alone.

This is the Suns first playoff appearance in like a decade and literally the first postseason for every player on the team besides Cp3, Crowder and Saric and Dario has only been in one himself

I do wonder what people actually know about either Bridges. No one knows about Mikal and people only know about Miles' dunks.

Don't worry. Anyone who plays fantasy basketball should know who Mikal is.

Jokic and Gordon are as good as they'll ever be. Murray and MPJ have room for improvement.

The Nuggets will be fine.

Why can't I hear anything from all the people that picked Denver to win this series? Crickets.

Please keep doubting the Phoenix Suns.

I thought he was a top pick and was another Thybull with all D and no offence. Boy am I wrong.

tbh the reason he can't be exploited because of his size is he knows he can foul the hell out of bigger players that try to back him down. Knowing what he's allowed to get away with is one of the many things he's a master of.

The reason he succeeds so much with his "pull the chair move" is he pulls the player :D

Hes always been an elite 3+D guy. Ever since he was drafted his ideal role was a 3rd/4th option on a contender.
Unfortunately the Suns have been so bad before this season that he hasnt been able to play to his strengths.

Wouldve been ideal for the Philly team, funnily enough.
