Why Jrue Should Be An All Star

 

As the All Star balloting ends, my guess is that Jrue Holiday will not be announced as an Eastern Conference starter. Holiday is a having an All Star caliber season averaging 19 points and 9 assists a game this season. His numbers are comparable with all the talented point guards in the Eastern Conference and he has become the leader of his team. Only Kyrie Irving averages more points than him and only Rajon Rondo averages more assists per game. He has struggled with turnovers at points this season but has been much better lately. With the Sixers having a 16-22 record and being 3 games out of a playoff spot it could affect Holiday. If you want the best players from the Eastern Conference in Houston for the All Star game, then Jrue deserves to play in this game.
