It is not wrong for Miles to come in and try rapping. However, with the owner of Hornets being Jordan, he may have to have a talk with him. As a player, Jordan worshipped practices and hard work. He gave his all to the game and never branched out from it. Hence, that may become a matter of discussion between the two. It may not be a problem because Bridges hasn’t let it affect his game.

Miles is putting up career numbers this season. He is averaging nearly 20 points per game for the Hornets and is a legitimate candidate for Most Improved Player. His increased scoring average has allowed Hornets to be a much more dominating team on most occasions. He has even earned himself Player of the Week honors once this season.
