New Orleans Pelicans’ point guard Jrue Holiday will make his season debut on Friday, Nov. 18 against the Portland Trail Blazers, Pelicans general manager Dell Dempa announced.
Holiday took an indefinite leave of absence to support his pregnant wife, former soccer star Lauren Holiday, as she battled a brain tumor. The fact that Jrue Holiday is close to returning to action signals that Lauren Holiday’s Pete Maravich Authentic Womens Jersey recovery has progressed well enough for him to feel comfortable returning to work.
Lauren Holiday was diagnosed with a brain tumor early in September, while she was pregnant. She gave birth to a healthy baby girl later that month. After that, she was cleared to have brain surgery, which she underwent in October. The tumor was successfully removed and she was expected to make a full recovery.
Besides the extra finger bling, there are changes with the Cavaliers this season. LeBron James is making a concerted effort to let Kyrie Irving shoot more — you’ll frequently see him immediately give it back to Irving after a kickout pass, in a position where he might take in himself in year’s past. Kevin Love didn’t shoot too well on Tuesday (5-of-16 from the floor), but his shots feel more in the flow of the offense than they ever have. The team is showing tremendous courage to keep playing without Delly on the roster, and this is only mostly a joke. It’s probably easier to see these things knowing Cleveland is the NBA’s reigning champions, but they still seem poignant.
The win moves the Cavaliers to 9-1 on the season, and it looks like they’ll be the inevitable No. 1 seed who is likely destined for the Finals. So far, the Raptors look like their most likely challenger. We thoroughly enjoyed last year’s Cavaliers vs. Raptors matchup, so what’s wrong with one more? But you also can’t watch Tuesday’s game and not feel even a little sympathy for the Raptors.
Whatever it is, and for however long it’ll last at this peak, take a second and Rodney Hood Authentic Womens Jersey appreciate it. You may not get many more chances to watch a player dominate in quite this way.
