Jrue Holiday Reveals Why He Loves Being Teammates With Jaylen Brown

Holiday Brown

Jrue Holiday has given Jaylen Brown his flowers and admits he has a newfound appreciation since becoming teammates with JB.

Brown has copped his fair share of criticism, particularly around his left-hand game.

But Holiday has seen how the C’s guard takes it all in his stride and uses the hate to better himself.

“I think coming into this season and throughout the season, he has shown that when people doubt him, he really takes that to heart, bro,” Holiday said on The Draymond Green Show. “Oh, he don’t have a left hand? If y’all really look at JB’s game this year, he’s been finishing crazy with his left hand. I don’t know if he was practicing that in the offseason or whatever it is, but literally everything they’ve talked about him — ‘he’s not that good of a shooter.’ He’s shooting the 3 very well. One of our go-to three-point shooters. I feel like whenever somebody doubts him, he’s like, ‘OK, I’m going to prove you wrong.’

“And that’s a dawg. That’s a dawg to me. He got that bark in him, he got that tough in him that’s like, ‘I really want to win.’ I saw it before, playing against him, that he really wanted to win. But it’s even more now because you hear the doubts people had about him, and can JB and (Jayson Tatum) do it together. And you see how they play together, bro, they play well together, they work on their game.”

Holiday went on to explain how he has been in awe of JB’s skilfulness.

“JB’s midrange is going crazy. His finishes at the rim are going crazy. His 3-point is going crazy. JB is a complete player to me,” Holiday said.

“And here’s the thing, we got him in the corner at times coming off down screens and making moves that way. And then we’ll have him run it down and play point guard, and run off screen-and-rolls, making plays and diming people. He has such a complete game to me and that’s why I love playing with JB.”
