Former Villanova standout Mikal Bridges is once again showing his Philly pride while playing for the Phoenix Suns.
The 26-year-old Philadelphia-born forward has never shied away from his Philly fandom. Although he had to relocate to Phoenix in 2018 after the NBA Draft, Bridges has stayed true to his home teams.
Bridges has been thrilled to root for the Philadelphia Phillies as they’ve had a remarkable postseason run, which resulted in a trip to the 2022 World Series.
On Friday night, Bridges and the Suns faced the New Orleans Pelicans at home. While that game was going on, the Phillies and the Houston Astros participated in Game 1 of the World Series.
Bridges had a dominant showing against the Pelicans, scoring 27 points off of 13 shots in 31 minutes, the Suns veteran had the opportunity to go back to the locker room and catch the rest of Game 1 between the Phillies and the Astros, which went an extra inning.
