Video Podcast: Mikal Bridges opens up on his basketball journey from HS, redshirting at Villanova, becoming a star, then going to the NBA
This came out in late October, but it is timeless. Found it in the YouTube rabbit hole in case anyone missed it. Bridges was a guest on UNC alum’s Theo Pinson’s podcast, Run Your Race, and he opens up on everything — from high school, redshirt year struggles, finding his identity, unfiltered chatter on the both national championship runs and his overall time at ‘Nova, to getting traded on Draft Night and finding his niche with the Phoenix Suns. (73 minutes)

Video Podcast (9 minute clip): Mikal Bridges on the national championship runs
If you’re not interested in the full 73-minute video podcast, at least get this 10-minute segment from Mikal Bridges’ appearance on UNC alum’s Theo Pinson’s podcast, where they talk about the 2016 and 2018 national championship runs, getting spanked by Oklahoma then getting revenge on the Sooners in the Final Four — how important the scout team was to that Final Four win — and of course, a nice walk down memory lane from the UNC-’Nova game.
