If the Sixers really want to separate themselves from the middle-tier of playoff teams, Jrue Holiday needs to step up this season.
Holiday definitely has the ability to play like a top point guard in the game. We've seen him establish leadership in big games and efficiently distribute the ball.
Over the last two seasons, Holiday has averaged 13.8 points and 5.5 assists per game. Not necessarily flashy, but he has definitely gotten the job done at the position.
Plus, there's a reason behind why he didn't produce more. Unfortunately, when Andre Iguodala was involved, Holiday didn't have full responsibilities of distributing the ball, so his production was limited.
But with Iguodala out of the picture, Holiday should flourish distributing the ball, similarly to the way Iggy did himself.
The talent and potential is all there, it's just a matter of following through with it on a consistent basis.
