It was back in July 2015 that Miles Bridges made an appearance of SBNation during Nike Global Challenge held in Chicago. Back then, Bridges had just started as a high school player and flourished into one 5-star recruit on ground circuit previously during summer. He shuffled between playing with Cassius Winston and 2 other top-fifty recruits at Michigan State or Malik Monk and De Aaron Fox at Kentucky.
Bridges eventually chose Michigan State and played next to just one man as a freshman. However, he returned to school after Spartans didn’t like his performance during the first week of NCAA tournament. Later, Hornets picked him as the No. 12 overall where he played really well during his first years. However, five years down the line, Bridges still couldn’t feel optimized as a basketball player. But finally, that has begun changing this season as Bridges now gets to play with LaMelo Ball.
Ball is a great player and has injected life in the Hornets team. Not even midway through the rookie season, the player has developed many memorable plays along with Bridges and created their own distinct package. Hornets have discovered their cornerstone of a prosperous future in Ball. Meanwhile, Bridges is showing this season that he has the power to play as a supporting player in whatever challenge comes next. He has turned to a player from a prospect and finally finding the correct way to leverage his skills has helped him certainly. So has including a strong playmaker such as Ball.
