Jrue Holiday has only made an All-Star team once, and it wasn’t even with the Pelicans.

Holiday made the 2013 All-Star team when he was with the Philadelphia 76ers. It’s been tough for him to make it in the Western Conference since there are so many elite guards in the West.

Holiday had another stellar season this year for the Pelicans. He averaged 21.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 7.7 assists in 67 games. The combo guard is one of the top two-way players in the league.
