I tried to find it for you, but there was a video, maybe posted by the Bucks twitter account (or maybe they retweeted it?) that had guys like Durant and a couple of others talking about how they thought Jrue was the best defender and super underrated. I'll dig a bit for it later, but sure seems like the league thinks extremely highly of Jrue.


Read on Twitter


That's the video I was talking about when I said that "they all seem to say very good things about Jrue." That doesn't answer the question about Jrue v Lowry, though - that's what I was wondering about.

That look on Jrue's face when Giannis called him "Big Money" had me dying.

Let me go ahead and present the impact analytics.
Note: some of Jrue's numbers are lower given this season isn't a full season of data and while these numbers are not supposed to be simply added on top of one another, they illustrate just how sizable the gaps are.

Lowry 13-18
BPM: 24.8
VORP: 22.7
RPM: 27.24
LEBRON: 21.24
RAPTOR: 26.2

Holiday 16-21
BPM: 11.5
VORP: 11.4
RPM: 19.07
LEBRON: 10.61
RAPTOR: 20.3

Haven't followed the whole thing here. But I'd guess many people's opinion of Lowry is lower than it should be due to the playoff choking before 2019. He was a really really good player for that stretch of years leading up to that point. Definitely an underrated guy who got ripped on for losing to LBJ, as if everyone didn't.

It's not like we had the choice here of one or the other so I don't get all the angst and drama.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

personal side of the Holidays. These aren't new but I hadn't read them before.

https://www.jsonline.com/story/sports/nba/bucks/2021/01/18/jrue-and-lauren-holiday-pledge-make-profound-impact-milwaukee/4174576001/
Jrue and Lauren Holiday were relaxing in bed at home in California when Jrue heard from New Orleans Pelicans general manager David Griffin: Jrue was headed to Milwaukee as part of what turned out to be a multi-team trade.

A short while later, the news hit the public with reports filling the Internet at about 10:30 p.m. Central Time on Nov. 16.

Shortly thereafter is when Lauren received a message, which included an article that Milwaukee was one of the worst places in America to live if you are African-American. Her friend added, I think you’re going there for a reason.

The next day, Lauren was on the phone.

On the other end was Arvind Gopalratnam, the Milwaukee Bucks’ vice president of corporate social responsibility and executive director of the team’s foundation. He was caught off guard. Usually, when a new player comes to the team there’s a scheduled sit down (or, currently, a Zoom meeting) where community outreach goals are talked about, plans developed, contacts shared.


The Holidays were already on the move, and Gopalratnam didn’t know he was trying to catch up.

“There’s no sugar coating it, without question it’s impressive,” he said. “Because they’re impressive people.”


It's exciting to see they plan to do a lot for the community. You couldn't ask for a better family to be coming here and getting involved over the next several years.

That wasn’t lost on Horst, either.

“It certainly fits into the calculus,” Horst said about the man they traded for. “If you kind of go back to the beginning, every decision that we’ve made we’ve really tried to run it through the same type of filtering process and Bucks DNA and character fit and culture fit is a massive part of what we make every decision based on. Talent obviously always matters, but someone’s toughness, their grit, their basketball IQ, the way that they treat people, the teammate that they are – those things matter.”




Here is Lauren Holiday's player tribune article. I didn't know they met in college at UCLA.

https://www.theplayerstribune.com/articles/lauren-jrue-holiday-nba-racial-injustice

(I don't want it to get political, so just posting the article she wrote, not interested in the comments).


Overall I'm really happy with landing Jrue and what he brings on the court and off the court as well. Horst says it all with the BUCKS DNA comment. :)
