The story of Miles Bridges’ decision to return to Michigan State for his sophomore year, it turns out, is quite simple. He’s just a kid who wants to be in college right now. Somewhere that gets lost. That he’s a kid. Less than a month past his 19th birthday. We see the NBA money he’s delaying and the risk of injury. We see the basketball player — a 6-foot-7, 230-pound man child. It’s easy to forget the teenager who likes his life. Because, well, he is more than that at MSU. For sure now.
