This is the fourth edition of the Golden State Warriors Mailbag. In last week’s Warriors Mailbag article, we discussed Warriors’ game-winners last season, the Warriors’ biggest competition in the Western Conference this season, and Ognjen Kuzmic and his future with the Warriors.
Justin Holiday. Not necessarily a name that many Golden State Warriors fans knew a couple months ago.
Fans might know him as the player who won the last spot on the Warriors’ roster out of training camp. Fans might know him from his dazzling performances throughout the 2014 NBA Las Vegas Summer League. Fans might even know him as the brother of former NBA All-Star and current New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday.
No matter how fans learned his name, fans need to start watching and appreciating Holiday’s game and his story.
In the summer, Las Vegas is the land of opportunity for basketball players who are looking for a spot on an NBA roster or looking for more experience. Dreams can come true in the NBA Summer League.
The Golden State Warriors didn’t have a draft pick this year and there might not be any standout names on their Summer League roster, but one of those fairly unknown players is making a serious push for a spot on the Warriors’ roster for the 2014-2015 season. That player is Justin Holiday.
