Hornets’ Miles Bridges agrees with All-Rookie omission: ‘I played like a–’
Miles Bridges is keeping things real about missing out on All-Rookie honors.
The Charlotte Hornets forward was one of the most notable omissions from the NBA’s 2018-19 All-Rookie Teams, which were announced on Tuesday.

Many believed that the 21-year-old was snubbed, but he had other thoughts.
“I didn’t get snubbed. I played like a– all year,” Bridges tweeted shortly after. “I don’t deserve to be on any team. Next year will be different.”
Bridges, the No. 12 overall pick in last year’s draft, finished his rookie season with averages of 7.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in 80 contests for the Hornets. He also made an appearance (albeit a forgettable one) in this year’s Slam Dunk Contest, giving him plenty to build on for his sophomore season.
