The majority of us here at Philadunkia were big Jrue Holiday supporters. In addition to his excellent on-the-court play as a member of the 76ers, Jrue was very good to this site and granted our staff a number of exclusive interviews during his years in Philadelphia.
So needless to say, we were shocked and disappointed when Holiday was dealt to New Orleans in Sam Hinkie’s Draft night blockbuster deal. Obviously we understood why Hinkie made the move and after the shock wore off, a few of us even agreed with the trade. Still, for the second straight year the face of the 76ers franchise was shipped out and it hurt a little.
However, in just three games rookie Michael Carter-Williams has eased our suffering greatly.
After the jump, a statistical look at how MCW is helping us cope with the loss of “The Jruth”.
