Good story here.

Mikal Bridges and the Astros’ Chas McCormick played basketball against each other in high school (Great Valley vs. Henderson) and Bridges totally clamped up the future World Series champion:

Bridges quoted the video clip on Twitter, saying “Funny thing is i still tell this story to people til this day… coach told us in the lockerroom we are not lettin him get his 1000 point today lol.”

McCormick, who was a multi-sport athlete at Henderson, went on to play baseball at Millersville and was drafted by the @stros in 2017. We won’t talk about the 2022 World Series.

Bridges, of course, won it all with Nova and then the Sixers drafted him and traded him to the Suns for Zhaire Smith and a 1st round draft pick that went to LA in the Tobias Harris trade. We’ve relitigated that trade a bazillion jillion times.
