It was a bittersweet feeling after the Suns traded away a couple of Valley favorites, including Mikal Bridges, to acquire 13-time All-Star Kevin Durant.

On one hand, well, the Suns got one of the greatest players of all time, and on the other, Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson would no longer be repping a Suns’ jersey on the court.

Bridges had been a centerpiece on the Suns since his career began in 2018. Known for never missing a game, fans quickly fell in love with his on-court performance, along with his off-court personality.

Ever since Bridges departed for Brooklyn, it has been well documented that his love for Phoenix has not wavered.

Whether it be his strong relationship with Devin Booker or the connection that he built with the city itself, Bridges is not afraid to admit that he still cheers on the Suns when he is not on the opposing bench.

Now, for the first time since he was traded away, Mikal Bridges will play again inside the Footprint Center as the Suns take on the Nets tonight at 7 p.m.

Ahead of the game, Bridges explained the length of his fandom for the Suns, remarking, “I’d catch myself in the playoffs watching rooting for them.”
