Bridges is currently averaging 20.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game—all career highs by a considerable margin. For good measure, he is also posting career bests in steals (1.0) and blocks (0.9). The only other players putting up those numbers in every category? LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns. “Sometimes I’ll sit down and just think, Wow, this really is my dream,” Bridges says. “My first three years, I knew I could play better and help the team more. I’m glad the work is finally paying off.”
