While Khris Middleton has only featured in seven games in the 2022-23 season, Jrue Holiday has undoubtedly been the No. 2 scoring option for the Milwaukee Bucks this season. Being one of the best two-way players in the league, Holiday's hard-fought efforts always get out shadowed by the heroics of Giannis Antetokounmpo. However, that is not the case for NBA Analyst - Justin Termine, who recognizes the 'game' of Jrue in the truest form.

Termine picked Jrue Holiday as a better player for any team over Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Jalen Brunson, as he brings more to the table in terms of overall contribution.

The NBA Analyst said, "I'd rather have Jrue Holiday than guys like Harden, Kyrie, and Brunson… he's a guy that you can't take advantage of defensively."

Moreover, Holiday has a natural ability to fit into the culture and style of any team alongside any set of players.

Jrue Holiday is currently averaging 19.4 points, 7.4 assists, 1.4 steals, and more than 4.5 rebounds per game for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2022-23 season.

The Slovenian International said, "Jrue is one of the best if not the best guard defender for me. He doesn't get a lot of praise for how he can guard."

Having already stamped himself as the X-Factor in the Bucks' championship triumph, will Jrue Holiday be able to inspire the Bucks in the 2022-23 season as well? Remains to be seen.
