Video: Miles Bridges hits head on rim during dunk

miles bridges

Playing above the rim is supposed to be just a cliche. It’s something we say because it sounds cool and is mostly helpful in describing a player’s athleticism and game.

Five-star recruit and incoming Michigan State freshman Miles Bridges, then, would appear to have an at-the-rim game.

The 6-foot-6 wing player hit his head on the rim this week while dunking at the Moneyball Pro-Am.

The novelty - and, probably, pain - of hitting your head on the bucket on a dunk is a pretty good exhibit of the type of athlete Bridges is and is one example of why many consider him a potential one-and-done candidate. He, along with Joshua Langford, Cassius Winston and Nick Ward, are a big reason why the Spartans are again the favorite to win the Big Ten and compete for a national title despite losing the likes of National Player of the Year Denzel Valentine.
