Nike loyalist Mikal Bridges calls out YouTuber and digital marketer Ronnie 2k for making him wear Adidas shoes on the video game NBA 2K.
Bridges had a great season with the Phoenix Suns this year. Though the Suns lost to the Bucks in the NBA Finals, it was a landmark year for the Bridges.
The Suns’ shooting guard stepped up in a big way during the 2021 playoffs, especially during Chris Paul’s absence due to the health and safety protocols of the league in the WCF.
Coming off the bench, Bridges averaged 11.1 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 1.0 SPG on a 48.4% shooting from the field and 89.3% shooting from the free-throw line.
The 24-year old had a career-high 27-points in Game Two of the NBA Finals. Bridges shot 53.3% from the field during the game and shot 100% from the foul line.
Bridges, who has been wearing Nike since his college days in Villanova, was surprised to see himself in wearing arch-rivals Adidas in NBA 2K.
Mikal Bridges takes offense to wearing Adidas sneakers in NBA 2K
It looks like Bridges takes his sneakers very seriously. Recently the Suns’ guard tweeted about a major glitch NBA 2K had made regarding his footwear.
My boy can we get these adidas off my feet in the K ?!!! @Ronnie2K

Former Villanova star wore Kobe AD Mid shoes on the court during his junior year for the Wildcats. Lately, however, Bridges had shown his affection for the KD 13s in his NBA career.

There is no doubt that NBA players take their footwear seriously and Bridges is no exception to it.
