Jrue Holiday participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit during Game Two of the NBA Finals. These are often good opportunities for players to engage with fans in an easy and fun manner.

The New Orleans Pelicans guard was asked by one user who the toughest competitor in the league is. Holiday had an interesting answer: Derrick Rose and Damian Lillard. The thread is here, but you can see the screenshot of the question and answer below.

After this year’s postseason, I don’t think many people would question Lillard.

However, it is interesting to see Rose’s name. It’s easy to forget how much pressure Rose puts on his opponents, as he really hasn’t consistently stayed on the floor in a long time. Plenty of people have questioned Rose over the past few seasons, as he never returned to the team after leaving the door open.

Holiday’s Pelicans had a lot of injury problems this season, but it’s a young roster with a lot of talent. Hopefully we can see them make some moves in a tough Western Conference next season.
