Miles Bridges has long developed a reputation as one of the league’s most athletic high-flyers in his two seasons with the Hornets. It’s not a shock, then, that the moment LaMelo Ball stepped onto the practice court in Charlotte, he pin-pointed Bridges as his lob target.

The pairing has already produced a number of highlights this preseason. No player has assisted Bridges more than Ball at four times. Three of those have been alley-oops and the one that wasn’t was perhaps Ball’s best pass of the preseason, a behind-the-back one in transition.

“The connection with me and Melo, it just clicked right away,” Bridges said. “As soon as he came here and it was our first practice, he just told me he’s going throw it up to me wherever. It’s been great.”

Ball and Bridges’ impact on the court together hasn’t simply been through alley-oops. Through the first three preseason games, the two have played together for 35 minutes, accounting for over half of each of Ball (62) and Bridges (60) total minutes.

Albeit in a small sample size, when sharing the court this preseason, Ball and Bridges have a 113.3 offensive rating, a 92.8 defensive rating and a net rating of 20.5. Compared to Ball’s -50.0 net rating with Bridges not alongside him and Bridges -3.7 net rating in the same scenario, it’s a noteworthy stat and one head coach James Borrego has taken notice of.

“I like those two and pick and roll,” he said. “I really do. That’s on me to get them involved more and pick and roll, especially in transition. You know, when Melo comes off and transition and Miles is flying into that early drag pick and roll and he just slips out of there and gets to the rim, that’s a tough cover in transition. It’s a lot of pressure on the rim with Melo getting downhill, Miles rolling to the rim. That’s on me to get that more apart of our offense moving forward.”

Borrego’s decision not to move Bridges into the starting lineup to replace the injured Gordon Hayward in the team’s third preseason game could be at least partially tied to keeping Bridges in his current role alongside Ball.

As a player who has operated heavily in the pick and roll in his brief professional career, having a teammate like Bridges as a running mate in those scenarios is a huge bonus for Ball. His versatility as a roller to the rim or pick-and-pop threat is unlike any big Ball has played with before.

It very well could be a big part of the team and their personal futures. But for now, at the very least, it will continue to provide plenty of highlight-reel alley-oops and dunks.

As Miles Bridges enters his third year in the league, his role on the Charlotte Hornets has never been more precarious. Questions abound as the signing of Gordon Hayward and the evolving Hornets offense may be signs that Bridges style doesn’t fit the new look squad. However, Miles has also shown an affinity to destroy rims like they insulted his mother. So, as we preview the 2020-21 season and what it might hold for Miles Bridges, let’s take a drive down memory lane and remember the dunks that got us here and what they might say about the future.

The Problem Dunk

The Problem Dunk may be the best Miles Bridges dunk of all time. The baseline move, the transition from catch to liftoff, the cock-back with gravitational pull, then finally the knockout slam that tilts the earth off its axis. The reason it’s called The Problem Dunk is two fold. The first reason being that this is during Miles’ rookie season and, as the Hawk’s Dwayne Dedmon found out first hand, his dunks were going to be a problem for opposing teams.

However, the other reason this is The Problem Dunk is what preceded it. A wide open look from the corner that bricks off the rim. In his first two seasons, Miles has averaged 32.8% from beyond the arc. In order for Borrego’s style of pace and space offense to run with efficiency, the Hornet’s forwards have to be a threat from deep. Bridges, to continue to be a problem in the air, must be able to pull his defender to the 3-point line to guard him. The good news is that his 3-point attempts doubled from his first to second years, the bad news is that his accuracy never improved about 33%.

Quarantine Dunk

Call this the quarantine dunk because all the Pistons around Miles are standing a socially distant 6 feet away from him as he demolishes the rim. The Hornets ranked 21st in the league in transition points in 2019. In an offense that puts an emphasis on increasing pace and scoring that number has to go up. If Miles wants to keep his starting spot and role on this team, it is these types of plays that will keep him there.

The Hornets spent 120 million dollars on Gordon Hayward during the offs-season. Hayward plays the small forward position, and his acquisition can be seen as a direct threat to Bridges’ playing time and development. However, Hayward plays the position very differently. Miles averages about two assists per game, while Gordon averages four. Hayward is more of an offensive facilitator while Bridges is more of a finisher. There’s a way for both to exist on the same court and thrive.

The TKO dunk

The TKO dunk has happened a few times in Bridges’ career. Firstly, this particular dunk was his third of the night; three knockouts equal a TKO. But most importantly, what it illustrates is the passion and ferocity with which Miles plays. My JV basketball coach used to call it, “The Want To.” He seems to bring energy to every play he’s involved in. There are echoes of this, kindred spirits in the league who play on that level: Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, PJ Tucker just to name a few. They bring the emotion of the game up; the best bring their team along with them. If Miles Bridges can unlock that, where he can transfer his passion, his “want to” to his teammates, then he can unlock another part of his potential

Maybe more than anyone else on the Hornets, Miles Bridges needs to pick a path in the 2020-21 season. Will he be the highlight reel forward who comes off the bench to ignite a second unit on the floor> Or will he increase his three-point accuracy, become a more aware passer, and ascend to that next level of player. That level where it doesn’t matter what Butler alum the team decides to overpay, the Hornets would be foolish to leave him on the bench.

Let me leave you with one last dunk, one against the defending champs; one to grow on:

While it may be just two days into the preseason, LaMelo Ball is certainly leaving a mark on his new head coach. James Borrego was asked on Saturday which players have left good impressions through the first practices of the year. Though Ball’s name was mentioned last, he was one of four names brought up.

“…LaMelo, boy, I mean, if you’re not watching him when he has the ball, you better get your eyes up because that ball’s coming,” Ball said. “He’s got elite playmaking ability. Get your hands ready, because he’s going to find you.”

None of the other three names Borrego mentioned as standout performers should come as a surprise: incumbents Devonte Graham and Terry Rozier and marquee addition Gordon Hayward.

“I’m really encouraged by the development that I’ve seen in Terry and (Devonte),” he said. “I see their leadership. They understand our system and they’ve really grown in their playmaking abilities. I’m really proud of them. They’ve really worked hard. They’ve got synergy. It’s like they’ve hit the ground running. It feels like we were just in Miami, and they’re ready to play again together.

“And Gordon’s just been a real calming presence for us. Just having his professionalism, just his spirit out there on the floor has been a great addition to our group.”

With practice not open to the media, even in the limited periods that typically would be allowed, the only access available to the public is the video posted to social media from the Hornets. While Ball has featured in some of those videos, it provides little context.

The first time the public will see the Hornets will be Saturday, the first preseason game against the Raptors.

While it has only been two practices, LaMelo Ball is making an impact on the Hornets coaching staff and players. Head coach James Borrego has spoken multiple times about Ball through the opening two days of practice, and teammate Cody Martin added insight to his rookie teammate’s performance while speaking to the media on Saturday.

“It’s hard to do comparisons, but he’s a really willing passer,” Martin said. “His first instinct is to facilitate. Obviously, it’s fun for guys like us on the wings who will run the floor and just constantly looking up and able to keep your head on the ball because you never know what’s gonna come toward you.

“He gets it. He likes to play. He’s active when he gets a break up up the floor. He’s fast-paced. We’re always looking for a pass from him. It’s been fun so far.”

Ball’s playmaking reputation preceded him as his new teammates have come into training camp with expectations on what to expect. Still, Martin and others have been impressed by his mindset and approach to the game each day so far.

“I just think that you kind of already get a sense from him that he’s the type of player who’s comfortable in a lot of different settings and environments,” Martin said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s the first day or the hundredth day, he’s going to come in and be Melo. He’s going to come in, and, you know, just have fun with it. Obviously, there’s a lot of things he’s still trying to learn, and he asks a lot of questions. He’s a willing learner as well because people forget that he’s young.

“He’s really, really young still. So, it’s pretty cool to see that he comes in and he’s willing to learn, just still trying to have fun with it.”

As much as Ball is known for his ability to pass the ball at an elite level, he’s also quickly gaining a reputation for his strong work ethic and as a gym rat. Those that were around him with Illawarra last season spoke as much but his first impression on Charlotte president Mitch Kupchak and Borrego likely made a lasting impact as well.
