Q&A with Jrue Holiday- SLAM ONLINE



LINK
quote:

SLAM: Jrue, how much of a challenge is it to move on to a new team in the offseason and be leader in the backcourt, with new coaches and new teammates?

Jrue Holiday: I have had a lot of different coaches in my life already, and I have faith that the coaching staff will help in making the transition easy.


quote:

SLAM: How do you see yourself fitting into the Pelicans’ offense?

JH: I think it’s gonna be easy. Need to study their game, watch them play, and I’ll take what they have, that’s my style of game. I think everyone’s gonna be happy in the system. We’ll use many screen-and-rolls, a lot of pick and rolls, [and] I can hit the threes going around the big men and going around the guards.

quote:

SLAM: Personally, how do you plan to improve your own game this offseason to get to the next level?

JH: I’d like to see myself in the All-Star Game again and hopefully make it to the Playoffs. I think that’s the ultimate goal: to get to the Playoffs and win championships.

SLAM also interviewed Ricky Rubio, Damian Lillard, and John Wall. Some quotes on Jrue from RR and Lillard:
quote:

SLAM: And who in the group is the toughest for you to defend?

DL: John is pretty good, but Jrue Holiday is probably the toughest, because he’s the biggest.
RR: All three are tough. I can’t pick one, but if I had to say, I’ll say… Jrue.

...been my favorite Pelican since the second he signed, closely followed by AD.

I think I mentioned him a while back saying I would love to get Holiday, even though I thought it would be impossible.

...big fan of his game. very likable too, which is a plus, especially after our experience with shithead.

You have to narrow that down... you mean Gordon, CP3, or B-Diddy?

All three of them were either our marquee player, or supposed to be, and all of them sulked for a good chunk of their time here.

It is a fair question but I'm pretty sure he's referring to All In Eric.

And Holiday has me excited beyond belief. He's just an all around stud. Good on defense, good at running the offense but also good at playing off ball. We've gone from not being able to buy a bucket when we needed it to teams are going to have a hard time shutting the Pelicans down.
