Shea is back hot off OTE opening weekend and just in time to welcome Tyneeha's son, Western Conference Champion with the Phoenix Suns, Mikal Bridges. More than an insight into his basketball journey, Mikal reflects with the ladies on the behind-the-scenes story of how he grew up and what situations off the court shaped him into the player he is today.

Mikal discusses how he mentally prepared to play ball at Villanova, only to be red shirted, and how that year formed him. The laughs, the tears, those who inspired him through grace, and those who motivated him through struggle; We hear about his championship seasons at Villanova, the blessing that was being traded to the Suns on Draft Night, having a career high game during the NBA Finals and the feeling that came with signing a 4-year $90 million rookie extension.

This episode is full of basketball, no doubt, but more importantly it is a testament to a mother’s love, to the power of positivity and to the meaning of a balanced and fulfilled life.
