Where are they Now: Brandon Rush

After being drafted in the first round by the trail blazers(was traded to the pacers soon after) Rush had been largely quiet. Well besides the failed drug tests(and addmitting to an illegal NBA practice).


 

Last year Rush averaged around 9 points per game.Unfortunately near the end of last year John Hollinger noted that "Brandon Rush will likely end this season as one of the worst NBA players to ever lead his team in minutes".  This year couldnt have started worse for Rush, after he returned from his suspension he loses his sarting job; but he has increased his average to 12.7ppg. While thats not a huge jump his December stats are far more impressive averaging 16 points per game, he also lead the team in scoring 3 games in a row.  If Rush continues to play like this he is sure to get his starting spot back. His best game this year came against the Raptors were he went 10-18 from the field and 6-8 from the 3pt line. If Rush can stay consistent you'll be hearing his name as much as you did when he was wearing crimson &blue.
