    Default Yahoo article mentions Kareem Rush's "vengeance"

    Nothing new to us, but fun to read from a national perspective.

    2. Nothing in the NBA – absolutely nothing – beats old-school vengeance, and you have to love the Indiana Pacers' Kareem Rush for using a grudge with Charlotte Bobcats GM Bernie Bickerstaff to fuel his fury.


    "He maliciously attacked me, and tried to make me look as bad as he could," Rush said. "A lot of teams didn't want to touch me."


    Two years ago, Bickerstaff, then the Bobcats coach, declared Rush a locker room problem and released him late in the 2005-2006 season. Even when his old Lakers bosses, Phil Jackson and Mitch Kupchak, came to his defense and insisted that sounded nothing like him, Rush couldn't find a job in the NBA a year ago.


    After an MVP season in Lithuania, the Pacers signed him to be a bench player for Jim O'Brien. This is a good fit for him, because he defends and shoots the ball. No coach in the league values the three-pointer like O'Brien, so this time Rush has a chance to stay in the league.


    "The NBA's a small fraternity, and once one thing bad is said about you, it doesn't matter if it's true or not," he said. "People tend to believe that. And last summer, a lot of teams didn't want to mess with a guy who got waived with nine games left in the season. They wondered what could I have possibly done to make him do what he did."

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    Friday 11/9 - Pacers Vs. Bobcats

    Anyone get the feeling the Bobcats may need to get out their umbrellas?

    Kareem can go out there and be a solid contributor, and that's what I like about the guy. Those shots down the stretch against Miami were obviously huge the other night.

    He has the potential to play a role for us like Robert Horry has played for the Spurs in the past couple of years. He's by no means a first, second, or third option, but he can hold his own out there, and even though he might only have 8 or 6 or even 3 points in a game,
    those points may be points down the stretch that either forced OT or led to a comeback victory down the stretch. Every team needs a guy like that.

    I was thinking more of Horry of "Big Shot Rob" fame from the Pistons NBA finals series a couple years back rather than the more recent issues he has had with the Suns
