08:13 AM ET 05.02 | At the expense of Evan Turner, who had his chance to make his mark as a starter, Jrue Holiday commanded the stage Tuesday night. [Turner] clearly was overwhelmed by the moment; erratic and overeager as his home city booed him on every touch. He was a hindrance until midway through the third quarter. Andre Iguodala, the All-Star and the likely Olympian, might have commanded the contest, but he played anonymously. ... Holiday had nothing to do with any of that. Holiday played flawless basketball, the engineer of a 109-92 playoff win over the top seed in the Eastern Conference that evened the series, 1-1. In the biggest game of the season, at 21 he became The Franchise.

I remember this kid when he came out of UCLA and I thought that he was a reach for the Sixers at the time, but the kid is coming along and he will be only 22 next month!!!

Jrue is not the face of the franchise the article is reaching far strech armstrong style. Sixers have no true face of the franchise the closest is Iguodola. We have a couple of equal scorers/slashers that are capable of stepping up or going cold. Go Sixers though!!
