The Sixers Sense Season Preview: Player Profiles: Jrue Holiday


Holiday is the leader on the floor for the Sixers.

The point guard of the Sixers is one of the most talented players on the court, but also one of the most inconsistent. Jrue Holiday has the potential to be a perennial all-star at his position, but must cut down on the turnovers. He is going into his 4th NBA season where he has averaged 10 points and 4 assists per game. Last season he had career highs in points, assists and field goal percentage, shooting an impressive 63 percent. One of his issues is working together with his back court mate Evan Turner. Turner who plays better with the ball in his hands, poses a problem to Holiday on many possessions. The new addition of Jason Richardson should give Holiday another option to find on the offensive end and increase his assist total. Holiday is on the cusp of being an elite point guard in this league. Once he cuts down the turnovers and find some consistency in his offensive game, he will be one tough match up.
