    Social media explodes with reactions about Mikal Bridges and his mom

    This got really awkward, really fast (see video of Mikal Bridges talking about playing for the Sixers even after he was traded away).

    After the city of Philadelphia, the campus of Villanova and generally everyone on the internet was celebrating the local product Bridges being drafted by the Sixers, the team dished him to Phoenix (see story).

    The news especially hit home for the Bridges family, as his mom, Tyneeha Rivers, works for the organization as the vice president of human resources at Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, which includes the Sixers.

    This tweet just about sums it up.

    Upon being drafted, there was tremendous joy for a hometown kid playing for his hometown team.

    Josh Hart, Bridges' former Villanova teammate, had the tweet of the night, too.

    Then everything changed after about 46 minutes.

    The reactions started pouring in.

    All of them, Arch, all of them. At least he found the silver lining for his former teammate.
