Best wishes and prayers ti Jrue and his family...

Few things in life are scarier than learning you have a brain tumor. When the news comes only months before the birth of your first child, well, it can be almost incomprehensible, especially for a world-class athlete.

This was the situation that confronted Lauren and Jrue Holiday in late June, when New Orleans doctors discovered a tumor on the right side of Lauren's brain.

The diagnosis was a gut punch for a young couple not accustomed to health problems.

Lauren Holiday, 28, a two-time Olympic gold medalist for the U.S. women's national soccer team, retired last year in the prime of her career, in large part, to start a family with her husband Jrue, the starting point guard for the New Orleans Pelicans. The family plans did not include brain surgery.

Puts all of the speculation with Jrue into perspective. Wishing the Holidays the best. Crazy unfortunate.
