While he didn't win this particular award, Holiday was named a finalist.
Created in honor of NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's legacy of "pursuing social justice and mission to engage, empower, empower and drive equality for individuals and groups who have been historically marginalized and systemically disadvantaged", the award goes to the player who most furthers that legacy.
Holiday was chosen because of his continued support for Black-led organizations and Black-owned businesses in Milwaukee and beyond, according to the league.
Similar to the teammate award, Holiday is also a two-time finalist for the Social Justice honor.
The Mavericks' Reggie Bullock won the award.
On the floor, Holiday remained an impact player for Milwaukee in 2021-22, helping lead the team back to the playoffs with a 51-31 regular season record and earning NBA All-Defensive Second Team honors in the process.
The guard tallied multiple steals in 34 of the 67 games he played this past season.
