Las Vegas Aces center A’ja Wilson is not here for any distractions. The two-time WNBA MVP made that clear when she responded to a tweet from Brooklyn Nets forward Mikal Bridges, who seemed to be flirting with her.

Bridges tweeted, “Whens the next game ??? @_ajawilson22” to which wilson replied, “pls leave me alone we cool over here” To which then bridges replied, “Ill just go on google

The exchange went viral on Twitter, as fans roasted Bridges for his awkward attempt to get Wilson’s attention. Some wondered why he didn’t just google the Aces’ schedule himself, instead of asking Wilson directly.

Wilson, who is one of the best players in the WNBA, was not impressed by Bridges’ advances. She showed that she was focused on her game and her team, which is currently the best in the league with a 12-1 record.

Wilson is averaging 19.3 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.2 blocks per game this season. She is also shooting a career-high 53.5 percent from the field. She is a strong candidate for her third MVP award, and she is leading the Aces to their second straight title.

Bridges is on the rise as one of the NBA’s elite two-way players. The former Phoenix Suns forward, who was traded to the Brooklyn Nets in the blockbuster deal that sent Kevin Durant to the desert, has thrived in his new role with the Eastern Conference contenders.

The 26-year-old finished the season strong, averaging 20.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game while shooting 46.8% from the field and 38.2% from beyond the arc. His versatility and defensive prowess have made him a valuable asset for the Nets, who have shown their commitment to building around him.

The Nets resisted any trade offers for Bridges ahead of the NBA Draft, opting to keep their young core intact. With Bridges, Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen and Spencer Dinwiddie, the Nets have a solid foundation for the future without sacrificing their cap flexibility.

The Nets are wise to stick with Bridges and their young talent, rather than chasing a superstar that may not fit their culture or system. Bridges has proven himself as a star in the making, and the Nets are ready to reap the benefits.
