3 facts you weren’t aware of: Jrue Holiday’s married to former US women’s national soccer team all timer Lauren Holiday. They’re having a kid together. She’s got a tumor on her brain that requires serious surgery.
Oh, and one more, Jrue Holiday will be taking off a long period of the NBA season to be by her side through the surgery and pregnancy.
Next time someone says all athletes are the worst, and care about nothing but money and random women, come back to this one. Jrue Holiday’s in a contract year, about to hit the best season of his life. 20 points per game is in sniffing distance if he stays healthy, and increase his percentages a little bit. He’s willing to risk that to be with his wife, which is clearly the more important thing.
Not all athletes are the same, remember that.
