NEW ORLEANS - Pelicans starting point guard Jrue Holiday and his new bride, U.S. National Soccer team member Lauren Cheney, spent their first Thanksgiving together feeding his teammates ahead of the Pelicans road trip up North.
After an early practice, the Pelicans team flocked to Holiday's home to join his family and his in-laws for a Thanksgiving feast.
"There was so much food," Holiday said. "My wife cooked non-stop."
Holiday says moments like that where this young team can bond off the court will help their performance on the court.
