Suns Trade. The Phoenix Suns just dealt away the future of the franchise in both players and draft picks for a run at a title with Kevin Durant. On twitter this morning, Mikal and Cam are trending as Phoenix Suns faithful give heartfelt good byes.
Emotional to say the Least…
Fans showed their love for Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson through tweets. Some expressing that they will be the most missed players in franchise history.

Others claim that if the young core of Ayton, Booker, Bridges, and Johnson do not win together, They are not interested.
The fact some of y'all are willing to split up Mikal and Cam for a shot at KD in hopes of a ring is why you don't deserve a ring.
If these 4 aren't getting the ring together, I'm not interested. 💯 pic.twitter.com/0fPZho4kWu

Then there was the emotional crowd of fans who admit Bridges and Johnson were their favorite players. A sentiment I believe we all can agree with on some level.
This trade is difficult to deal with emotionally. Mikal and Cam J are two of my favorite Suns players ever.

As incredible as it is to have KD, I am a bit emotional about losing Mikal and Cam

Some fans were almost confused and depressed learning that they just watched the duo’s last game in a Suns uniform.
