Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal joined former NBA players Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson on All The Smoke podcast. Towards the end of the show, Beal was asked to name the most underrated NBA player. His answer did not surprise Barnes and Jackson, as they said 95% of their guests go for the same guy.

“Everybody ‘Ahh I don’t think he’s underrated’ but Jrue [Holiday]. It’s not even funny how talented he is on both ends of the floor,” the 26-year-old shooting guard said with All The Smoke hosts agreeing with him.

The New Orleans Pelicans guard was an All-Star in 2013. Holiday also made the NBA All-Defensive First Team in 2018 and NBA All-Defensive Second Team in 2019.

This season, Holiday is averaging 19.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game for the Pelicans, who are hoping to have a run for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
