Amazing news for the NBA community. We reported on it a little while ago, that Jrue Holiday left the sport to be with his wife Lauren, who was both pregnant and suffering from brain tumors.
Today Jrue announced he’s coming back, “Because his wife said he can”.
All-time great move by Jrue. If you’re going to talk about athletes setting strong examples for the youth of our nation, you now have to put Jrue at the top of the list. And I hope when he comes back tonight in New Orleans, against the Trail Blazers, the fans do the right thing and give him a standing ovation for at least 10 minutes. Because even though that’s not even close to the reason he did this, he deserves praise, as does his wife. Shoutout to you Jrue.
