Miles Bridges would have been an NBA lottery pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
Bridges chose to come back to Michigan State for his sophomore season for what he is calling “unfinished business.”
Tuesday afternoon, the day of the NBA Draft lottery, Bridges tweeted,”Make the money don’t let the money make you.”
One Michigan fan responded saying, “us Michigan fans would have preferred you made the money.” Which is actually really cool to see from a Wolverine. Usually you would see them say something snarky.
Bridges followed that up by saying, “I know.”
And that’s when the snarky comment made its way to Twitter … but only it came from Bridge’s rival, former Michigan guard Derrick Walton.
Walton tweeted, “Our last meeting in Crisler must have really stung to make you wanna stay!😉😂 #GoBlue @MilesBridges01.” Michigan State fell to the Wolverines 86-57 after previously beating Michigan 70-62.
Bridges didn’t let that comment go unnoticed, saying, “😒 yeah we 1-1 but yo young boys in trouble next year I promise you that.”
In Walton’s four years at Michigan, his Wolverine teams were 3-5 against Michigan State. Should Walton have maybe just minded his own business?
