Holiday: I am happy to join the same elite club with Michael Jordan

The defender of the US national basketball team, Jrue Holiday, is happy to win the NBA title and Olympic gold in one year.

The US national team on Saturday beat the French in the final of the Olympic Games in Tokyo with a score of 87:82. The Americans won the tournament for the 16th time (the fourth time in a row). Holiday and Khris Middleton (both from Milwaukee) became the fifth and sixth players in history to win the NBA title and Olympic gold in the same year. Previously, this was done by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen (twice), LeBron James, and Kyrie Irving.

“These last few months have been just crazy for me and Khris Middleton. I don’t know exactly how many people in history have won the NBA title and Olympic gold in one year. I think Michael (Jordan) did it. I think Kobe (Bryant) did it. No? Wow! I am happy to join the same elite club with Michael,” Holiday told reporters.
