After starring at Villanova and winning an NCAA Championship along the way, the stage was set for Mikal Bridges to enter the NBA and keep the Philly dream going as he was picked by the 76’ers. But life doesn’t always work out the way we want or expect, and Mikal found himself involved in a draft night trade and the key piece of rebuilding Phoenix Suns team. From that point on, it’s been steady rise in both play and stardom as Bridges continues to forge his name among the league's most exciting players. And the best part? He’s only just begun. Teaming with CP3, he’s led the Phoenix Suns to a scorching hot start to this season as they ride a 13 game winning streak. JJ and Tommy talk to Mikal about that, as well as his crazy draft night, his years at 'Nova, the closeness of this Suns’ team, the influence Jay Wright and Monty Williams have had on his career, and so much more.
