Bridgeman was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1975 NBA draft with the eight overall pick. Almost three weeks after the draft, Bridgeman was involved in a landmark trade. Bridgeman was traded by the Los Angeles Lakers with David Meyers, Elmore Smith and Brian Winters to the Milwaukee Bucks for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Walt Wesley.
In his 12-year NBA career, he scored 11,517 total points. He was a sixth man for most of his career, averaging double figures in scoring for nine consecutive seasons.

During the off-seasons of his playing career, Bridgeman worked and learned the business model of Wendy's fast food restaurant franchise. After retiring from the NBA, he invested in the franchise and eventually owned over 100 various Wendy's and Chili's restaurants, before selling in 2016.
