Mikal Bridges has been sorely missed by Phoenix Suns fans everywhere ever since the trade to send him, Cam Johnson, and Jae Crowder to the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Durant and T.J. Warren was taken place back in February. However, that hasn’t stopped the former Sun from staying in contact with former players from the Suns.
Chris Paul sent teammate Bridges a custom Brooklyn Nets helmet as a gift via Mikal Bridges Instagram earlier Tuesday morning.

Bridges have been balling this season for the Nets. In 16 games, he’s averaging 25.9 PPG, 4.5 RPG, and 2.6 APG. He’s also shooting 50% from the floor and 44% from three-point range to go along with a steal and a block a game.
It’s really amazing that the Suns’ players still keep in contact with Bridges and Johnson. It proves more and more about the culture that they brought here and that’s something that Devin Booker alluded to when discussing both of them at practice about a month ago.
The Suns will very much miss the twins still as their impact on the court and off was contagious but it helps to have a future hall-of-fame player in Kevin Durant joining at the opportune time in hopes of winning a championship.
