Back in 2015, Jordan joined France’s L’Equipe for an interview, and at the time, Jordan claimed that he could still beat the Charlotte players in one-on-one but didn’t want to hurt their confidence. Jordan was 52 years old at the time of the interview, and the Hornets’ roster included Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum. As far as we know, those games never took place.
Jackson Jr.’s college roommate and current Charlotte Hornets forward, Miles Bridges got him hooked on writing. According to Jackson Jr, he gets his inspiration from his everyday life. “You know music relates to basketball,” Jackson Jr. said. “It gets us ready for everything. Stuff I like to listen to is like the stuff I like to make so I want to make stuff that I think is my favorite stuff.”
Marc Stein: Nine who secured these all-you-can-get deals, which pay out 90-plus percent of their 2019-20 salaries by April 1, are represented by Klutch Sports on contracts structured and negotiated by agent Rich Paul and attorney Mark Termini. The nine Klutch players are naturally led by LeBron James and include John Wall, Kentavious-Caldwell Pope, Dejounte Murray, Miles Bridges, Darius Bazley, Darius Garland, Terrance Ferguson and Trey Lyles. Next season it will be 10 when Draymond Green’s contract extension kicks in.
Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2020 NBA Rising Stars after leading the U.S. Team to a 151-131 victory over the World Team. Bridges (20 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists) received four of seven possible votes from a six-member media panel and the fans, who counted as one vote in tonight’s Rising Stars Game in Chicago, IL. The second-year forward became the first player in franchise history to take home MVP Honors of the Rising Stars game.
The Charlotte Hornets today unveiled the limited-edition bobbleheads of Miles Bridges, Dwayne Bacon and PJ Washington that will be distributed at three upcoming games in February and March. On Saturday, February 22, the first 7,500 fans entering Spectrum Center for the game against the Brooklyn Nets will receive a fighter pilot-themed Bridges bobblehead, playing off his ability to take flight on the court. Bridges is wearing a flight suit and aviator sunglasses, and holding a teal and purple helmet with a classic Hornets logo. When the Hornets host the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, March 1, the first 7,500 fans will take home a “Dwayne” Bacon bobblehead. Playing off his last name, the bobblehead depicts Bacon as a strip of bacon standing on a frying pan and includes audio featuring unique play-by-play calls from FOX Sports Southeast’s Eric Collins.
Understanding the significance of the time in between his rookie and second season in the league, Bridges is fully aware of the added responsibilities thrust on him with Kemba Walker’s departure. He’s not shying from it, either, and it’s one of the reasons he’s been hitting the weight room and the gym floor so frequently this offseason. “I knew this summer was going to be a big one for me, coming off last year,” Bridges said. “I’m definitely coming in hungrier than I was last year because Kemba isn’t here first of all. And I just want to be a better player for myself, too. I know the young guys are going to have to lead the team a little bit. We still have some veteran leadership in Marvin (Williams), Nic Batum and we just added Terry (Rozier). But we have to step up in a big way. I know that I’ve got to grind.”
“I know how not to force things now and coach, he’s giving me the green light to shoot,” Bridges said. “So anytime I’m open I’m going to shoot the ball because that’s what coach wants me to do and that’s the best shot available in the NBA — a three or a layup. So I’m still learning, but I know when to take the right shots.” Getting the ball to him in positions where he can flourish is now partly the responsibility of Rozier and Bridges has enjoyed interacting with him. Given the talk surrounding his acquisition, Bridges expects a seamless transition of Rozier meshing with the Hornets’ younger cast of returnees.
He would get in Miles Bridges’ face for missing a defensive assignment. He would show Devonte Graham the open teammates he overlooked. He would point out the spots on the floor Malik Monk should have reached faster. Parker didn’t do this to be a know-it-all. He did it because coach James Borrego installed him as the Hornets’ savant-in-residence before training camp began in Chapel Hill last September.
Although Rice didn’t speak to Bridges directly after draft night, he certainly watched him fulfill his lifelong dream by entering the league and even offered advice from afar. “I’m first of all glad he made his dream come true, he is a special talent and will look real good in the Charlotte uniform,” Rice told the Deseret News on draft night via text message. “The only advice I can give him is that now your work really starts because everyone in the league is good and every year there are guys coming in to take your job or playing time so be ready.
With first-round pick Miles Bridges added to a growing arsenal of Hornets wings that already includes Lamb, Nicolas Batum, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Malik Monk, Bacon will have plenty of competition for minutes in the team’s rotation. Battling for spots is not a bad thing, especially if it brings out the best for those involved. “Every guy wants to play, but it’s getting something out of each other and competing at the hardest level each and every day,” Bacon stated. “Coach is going to make the decision to put the best guy out there in any situation and we just go from there. There’s not too much worrying about, ‘Oh, this guy’s going to play over this guy.’ All of us are competing and we want to win. Once we win, everybody gets a great accomplishment out of that.”
