An NBA champion; an Olympic gold medalist; a legendary defender on the court. No one has “basketball brain” quite like Jrue Holiday, so we were thrilled to have the opportunity to catch up with him after the NBA season to chat about the game, his life, and his experiences wearing our smart compression sleeves.
We caught up with Jrue Holiday, the newly-ringed NBA champ and Olympic gold medalist, to see how he’s finding his focus this season. We’ve learned a lot about the athlete, and wanted to share with you ten things you probably didn’t know about Jrue Holiday in this rapid-fire video.
Your swing is everything. All the anticipation, the prep, and the worry culminates into a single swing, every time. As much as golf is a mental game, the physical mechanics of your swing play a big part in how well you perform every round. Learning how to improve your golf swing will help to build your confidence, to trust your decision-making skills, and to ultimately improve all aspects of your game.
Although golf may not be the most physically demanding sport, it is definitely one of the most technically difficult sports to master.

Golf is a sport that affords you a lot of time for thinking, and, as a result, is a game that can feel like it’s unraveled completely after a few bad shots. Unfortunately, in a game where a round can last up to five hours, you get plenty of time to sap your own confidence and get caught up in your own head. So golf improvement often starts with knowing how to focus better – increasing your focus to decrease your score.
Golf is, arguably more than any other, a sport about focus. So, we took some time to compile, from the masters of golf, mental tips for focus and concentration that can benefit your game. Here is what they’ve had to say over the years.
As the 2021 NBA season has gone on, it has been extremely rewarding for us to catch up with NBA all-star and point guard for the Milwaukee Bucks Jrue Holiday, hear about how he’s doing, and learn how he’s been using our smart compression sleeves to improve his focus and reduce his stress both before games and during practices.
