The One Thing Jrue Holiday Wishes the Bucks Did Before Trading Him

Jrue Holiday

Jrue Holiday has made peace with the Bucks’ decision to include him in the Damian Lillard trade, but he wishes they did one thing differently.

The now-Celtics point guard admitted on Wednesday before playing his old team that some warning about his departure would have been nice.

“I think that they got what they wanted, so I can’t be mad at that,” Holiday told ESPN when asked if he had any hard feelings toward the Bucks. “A warning would’ve been cool. But other than that, I’m in the best place that I can be to compete against them, which is for the top team in the East and, hopefully, the top team in the league.”

The two-time All-Star also spoke about whether the amount of time that’s passed has changed his perspective on the trade.

“I think it’s been about the same (as) once I got traded,” he stated. “We do know that this is a business, and from a business standpoint, I’m in a very good position to be where I want to be, and that’s win a championship. So again, (I’m) still happy to be here. None of that has ever changed. So, yeah, I wouldn’t say anything’s changed.”

Holiday spent three seasons in Milwaukee and was a big factor in helping them win the 2021 NBA championship, alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez.

Boston are one of the top best scoring defenses teams in the league right now, alongside the Knicks and Timberwolves.

The Bucks however, aren’t doing so well consistency-wise and are giving up the eighth-most points per game in the NBA.

Safe to say, Holiday is definitely in the “best place” to compete against his old team.
