Familiar Territory for Jrue Holiday
This is not Jrue Holiday’s first time being recognized by the NBA for his personality and selflessness. Holiday was the recipient of the Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award last season. The Twyman-Stokes Award recognizes an NBA player’s selfless play, on-and-off the court leadership, and commitment to the team. Furthermore, Holiday was a co-winner of the January NBA Cares Community Assist Award. Holiday was given this award due to his efforts in communities around the United States. Specifically, providing aid to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only has Holiday proven his worth in his play, but he has also proven his worth in the respect he gives to other NBA players and the communities he supports. A teammate such as Jrue Holiday is hard to come by. However, the Milwaukee Bucks have him on their championship-contending roster.
Jrue Holiday was one of the six finalists named for the award. The other finalists were Kemba Walker, Josh Okogie, Bam Adebayo, Derrick White, and Harrison Barnes. Jrue earned 130 out of 343 first-place votes. In addition, he earned a total of 2,752 ballot points. The full results can be seen below.

Jrue Holiday has been a fantastic addition to the Milwaukee Bucks. His play has given the Bucks an opportunity to make a run at an NBA championship. His effort on the court speaks volumes, but so does his sportsmanship and respect. Congratulations Jrue!
