I think since Kareem Rush dropped those six 3's on you to knock you out of the playoffs last year, you've got a slightly skewed opinion of him, perhaps. He's not exactly always quite that good...
He's streaky, at best. But yeah, I liked him, and was bummed to see that trade go down this morning. Not surprising though, since he seems to have not been able to crack Tomjanovich's rotation. I think they did it moreso 'cause they want to keep that little Tionne Brown point guard around, so they needed to open up a roster spot that they weren't expecting to, due to Brown's decent play of late, and the fact that we've got no backup point guards.
I think Brian Cook's surprising outside shooting touch this season made Rush expendable.
BTW, Wolves BARELY squeeked by the Clips the other night. Nail biter, that WE should've won. Lucky bastards. I would've been talking **** to you (MN) guys for weeks had we pulled that one out.
Still so the Lakers will definitely be better than the Clippers though. They're the Clippers, after all. And the Lakers still have Kobe. 'Nuff said.
