Today in Sports History: December 28

By Brandon Zhu

In 2019, the Holiday brothers made history in a game between the Indiana Pacers and New Orleans Pelicans. Aaron Holiday started for the Pacers as did Jrue Holiday for the Pelicans. Then, with seven minutes and 47 seconds left in the first quarter, Justin Holiday checked in off the Pacers’ bench. That made them the first trio of siblings to play in the same NBA game. 70 sets of brothers have participated in the NBA. Some other notable current brother sets include the Curry brothers, Ball brothers, Plumlee brothers, and the Antetokounmpo brothers. The Holiday brothers have done well. Jrue Holiday recently signed a 5 year $131 million contract with the New Orlean Pelicans and made the NBA All-Defensive Team in the past two years. Aaron Holiday is still with the Indiana Pacers on a 4 year $10 million dollar contract. Justin Holiday is also with the Indiana Pacers on a 3-year $18 million dollar contract.
