What is you talking about jrue holiday is the MVP the pelicans haven't been surrounding him with the talent he deserves in the past few years and he's been in the shadow of Anthony Davis who gave up on the pelicans because he wasn't playing his role correctly as the MVP for the pelicans he was focused on creating a dynasty on a whole different team now jrue has quality talent like zion, favors, Ingram, Reddick,Hayes, ect. He is now in position to play that role he is an amazing two way player and a awesome defender he is a perimeter shooter when he has to be and can get to the rim with ease you don't have to be able to shoot from half court or have godly handles to be considered an MVP he just needs to focus on putting on amazing numbers which he can do now that Anthony Davis is not catching every single alley and the game can be played better

Nobody even gonna talk about the disrespectful comparison. 😂 Nash was one of the best ever to never win a chip. Clutch too.

Holy fuck how do people so inexplicably stupid get on tv? The Nets didn't want a first round pick? Seriously? This was about vanity as opposed to business? Seriously? How the hell does this idiot keep his job? The Jarret Jack of sports talk. Lucky he's buds with Bomani.

A lot of you so-called fans are speaking from emotions and most of y'all are fans of these other high-profile players but make no mistake about it jrue holiday plays defense every damn game this guy really is first team all-defense even though they gave him second teamm if you watch that Portland series when they won that is jrue Holiday playing defense n yes he plays way every game not to mention averaging 23 points per game this year I'm pretty sure that number is going to get a lot more high so how can he not be a MVP candidate being on the all-defensive team and averaging probably right about 26 points per game he will be a MVP candidate

What position is Jrue even gonna play? PG or SG? like him lonzo or jj reddick are gonna have to be on the bench who is taking that cut, jrue is the vet, and they have alot invested in Lonzo & JJ

The initial argument doesn’t make any sense. If KD was simply concerned with the idea that he is worth more than Russell then the Warriors would’ve gotten the draft pick not traded it.

Jrue is nice...seeing how the Alexander-Walker kid plays what a great Vet/Rook pairing for them...If Pelicans get to a 6th seed as constructed why not look hard at Jrue? Can't wait to see them play...Still hate the Pelicans name...terrible to have a monumental talent come to a team and you are selling merchandise with 'Pelicans' on it...tough

I am a pelicans fan, he is a good player and always have been, but Holiday won't win a MVP in the western conference... Too many pgs over there that can get you 30 a night.. He never seen a all star game since he's been in the west. Though that could very well change this year being he's NOW the best player there since he's been there and probably now has all the green light in the world such as the other high usage western conference PGs

????? Durant was asking for the Warriors to send MORE assets in order for the to Nets get a better deal. This is not about his value. Durant could have just signed straight up. If he had balked about his value, the Nets would have had to send MORE to the Warriors, not the other way around.

This is the same guy that gave Tristan Thompson and JR Smith 30 million a year because LeBron said they're his friends. Just because he won the lottery this dude thinks he's HOT fuckin shit. David is among the worst GMs in the league.

What is with everybody being on the pelicans bandwagon. This team is not winning team yet. You got team full of guys that hasn't been on a sub .500 team. But now there suppose to break threw. Btw not one of these guy are on AD skill level period. But Zion Williamson fat ass suppose to come in dominate the league. No shot to speak of in a conference stacked with all-star. And really good players battle to be a all-star.

A lot of people on here showing how little they know about Jrue. It’s understandable because pelicans games don’t get a lot of exposure but let me say this. I have watched Jrue Holiday absolutely annihilate some of the best players to play the game. He is WAY more talented than the people in this comment section are giving him credit for.

It’s sad that the media climate is such that, “because he is Jrue Holiday and he plays for the Pelicans” is an acceptable answer. Now I hope Jrue does get MVP.
