Boston Celtics misidentify Lauren Holiday USWNT kit worn by Jrue Holiday

You can't wade into soccer discourse without knowing your U.S. women's national team legends.

The Boston Celtics made that mistake, and spent the rest of Tuesday night suffering endless roasts from USWNT Twitter (and, just for good measure, actual USWNT star Alex Morgan).

The issue? Celtics guard Jrue Holiday showed up for Boston's home game against the Philadelphia 76ers in a U.S. kit bearing the number 12. Holiday wore the jersey to tease the announcement of the U.S. men’s national team friendly against Brazil, which was made on TNT at halftime of the Sixers-Celtics game.

But the Celtics caused a bit of confusion by neglecting to mention that Holiday’s wife is USWNT legend Lauren Holiday, a World Cup winner, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and 2014 NWSL champion who famously wore the No. 12 throughout her career.

Holiday’s jersey was technically a USMNT kit, but seeing him wear the No. 12 his wife made famous caused many to assume he was repping the USWNT, not the USMNT.

In basketball and on social media, if you don’t get your fundamentals right, you get dunked on.
