Jrue Holiday credited God for Milwaukee Bucks’ victory in the 2021 NBA Finals.
Overwhelmed with his team’s success for clinching the championship, Holiday declared that the reason behind it was “only God,” CBN News reported.
“This is such a blessing, man. This is only God. Like I said before, as a kid, you only dream of this moment, so to be able to actually do it, to see the confetti, to do it with my brothers, there’s nothing like it,” he said.
The Bucks defeated the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of the finals on Tuesday evening, 105-98, 50 years after the team captured its first championship.
“Everybody on my team is humble. Everybody on my team puts their head down and they work. Everybody on my team supports each other. There’s no envy or jealousy. Everybody loves to see everybody else succeed. I feel like that’s the biggest reason why we’re here,” he told the reporters.
