Holiday Gets His Jrue

Jrue Holiday, who signed a four-year extension late Wednesday night, finds himself in some exclusive 76er company historically.

Only two Sixers had more assists through the first three years of their NBA career than the 1101 that Holiday dished out. And remember, the 6-foot-3 guard out of UCLA did it with a shortened third season, due to the work stoppage.

Here are the 76ers that had the most assists through the first three seasons of their NBA career: 

 Player  First Season    GP  Asts.    1st  2nd  3rd
 Maurice Cheeks    1978-79  242    1547  431    556    560

 Jrue Holiday  2009-10  220  1101  280  531  290
