High/Low Expectations: Jrue Holiday

via d.yimg.com

Jrue Holiday #11 PG

Best case: Jrue follows the same blueprint as Thaddeus Young and Marreese Speights in their rookie seasons, plays meaningful minutes down the stretch, and makes every Sixers fan drool about the future. Supposedly new coach Eddie Jordan is notorious for being tough on rookies, so Jrue is going to have to earn his minutes. The best way for a rookie to earn minutes is play defense. Luckily for Jrue, defense is his speciality. If Jrue simply played 15-20 minutes of solid defense, shows  glimpses of future goodness, and limits  his "rookie mistakes" I, and every other Sixers fan, would be Jolly Ranchers. 

Best case stats: 20 minutes, 7 points on 44%+, 3 assists, 1.5 steals, and less than 1.5 turnovers.

Worst case: Jrue cannot grasp the Princeton Offense, makes too many "rookie mistakes", shoots a low percentage, and ends up riding the pine for most of the season. Some guys to keep a close eye on all season are: Ty Lawson, Eric Maynor, and Jeff Teague. If any, or all of these guys outplay Jrue, Sixers fans will be second guessing the selection and things won't be good for Jrue.

Worst case stats: 10 minutes, 3 points on 39%, 1 assist, .5 steals and more than 1 turnover.
