Holliday’s wife’s “nail” on the Bucks trade: “It’s not just business – We’re people”


THE Jrue Holiday he declared last Tuesday that he wants to stay with the Bucks forever and a day later he was traded to Portland. Finally, the 33-year-old ace ended up in Celticswith his wife, Lauren, to express her displeasure with how teams handle their athletes. She herself knows this well, having been a great soccer player and member of the US national team.

I share these words so that the world can see behind the moves that are made because of business. Contrary to the prevailing cliché, it is personal, because people’s lives are affected. It’s never ‘just business’. On Wednesday my husband went to sleep and woke up to the news that he had been given an exchange. No warning, no information, not even a discussion that such a thing was a possibility. It just happened. And now move on ’cause it’s not personal, it’s just business. So, yes, it’s more than business. Not because he insulted us, but because we are human, we have relationships, dreams and ties to the place we play. As I write this, we mourn this loss while celebrating the hope and joy of what lies ahead. You grow when you turn that pain into strength to move forward. This is who we are and this is who we will always beLauren Holliday wrote on social media.

Jrue’s wife has won two Olympic gold medals, as well as a gold and a silver medal at the World Cup. They have been a couple with the NBAer since 2008 when they were in college (UCLA). He retired in 2015 and a year later diagnosed with a brain tumor, while she was pregnant. After her birth in 2016, she underwent treatments and beat cancer, while the couple also had a son in 2020.
