Mikal Bridges reacts to the Nets-Knicks trade finally becoming official

Recently, the New York Knicks shocked the entire NBA when it was announced that they would be trading for Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Mikal Bridges for a sizable sum that included the equivalent of five future first-round picks shift. While it was a lot to give up for a player who never made an All-Star team, the Knicks are seemingly putting all their chips in the middle of the table and, in doing so, have teamed up with Bridges and some of his former teammates Villanova varsity team, namely Jalen Brunson, Josh Hart and Donte DiVincenzo.

A possible Bridges trade to the Knicks has been rumored for some time, considering the connection to Villanova and the fact that the Knicks were clearly far from truly competing in the Eastern Conference; Now that the trade has actually come to fruition, it seems no one is happier about it than Bridges himself.

First, Bridges used his account on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, to respond to the Knicks’ post welcoming him, simply writing “Thank you” with orange and blue hearts. Then, it was discovered that the former Phoenix Suns star had changed his profile picture on the platform to a shot of him and Brunson at what appeared to be a Team USA practice game, according to Erik Slater of ClutchPoints.

Needless to say, it appears Bridges is more than happy to move across the bridge to Manhattan to join a Knicks team that has great potential to do some real damage.
