In 2009, Jrue Holiday entered the NBA draft after just one season at UCLA.  Despite being a natural point guard, the Bruins had him starting at shooting guard next to future NBA starter, Darren Collison. During his freshman year with UCLA, Holiday averaged 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.

On draft night, Holiday was drafted 17th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers. He was the last player in the green room to hear his name called. 

After four seasons in the NBA, Jrue has become one of the rising stars in this game. His game is admired by his peers, as many would surely regard him as one of the best point guards in the league. 

Watch now to see what type of advice the Philly guard has for the incoming NBA draft class.
