Is Jrue Holiday ready to bust out?
To start with, Holiday appears to be way ahead of where he was at any point in time during his short career. He is shooting the ball with tremendous accuracy and has transformed his game into one in which he seems to see the game much more slowly than he used to. He is in total control and is the biggest scoring threat on this team. He totally schooled Jameer Nelson in the team's first preseason game, with 27 points in a little more than 19 minutes.
No one was hurt more by the lockout than Holiday. His game can slip to street ball in a hurry when he doesn't have the likes of Collins on him. This is a big upgrade at the point.
