Boston Celtics star Jrue Holiday shares honest quote ahead of NBA Finals

On June 6, the Boston Celtics will host the Dallas Mavericks for Game 1 of the 2024 NBA Finals.

The Celtics acquired Jrue Holiday during the offseason for this exact moment.

He was an excellent role player alongside superstars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Recently, the 2021 NBA champion met with the media and shared an honest quote about winning a title that was widely viewed on social media.

Holidays: “It takes everything. I literally say it takes everything. It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Mentally, physically you’re exhausted. Teams know each other so well that it’s a bit of a turn at the moment about playing. It’s about executing, but I think the biggest thing for me was how exhausted I was because I left everything out there.”

Holiday won the 2021 title with the Milwaukee Bucks (they defeated the Phoenix Suns in six games).

He finished his first season in Boston with averages of 12.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game while shooting 48.0% from the field and 42.9% from three-point range in 69 games.

The Celtics had the best record in the NBA (64-18) and are the first seed in the Eastern Conference.

They defeated the Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers in the first three rounds of the playoffs.
