The NBA Development League has found more than its fair share of players looking for an NBA comeback this season as everyone from Greg Ostertag to Ricky Davis to Rafer Alston to Jerome James have decided playing in the D-League would give them the best chance to make it back to the big leagues.
The newest player to decide to give the D-League a shot, Kareem Rush, is another name people should recognize. The 31-year-old shooter was given solid role player minutes with the Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte Bobcats and Indiana Pacers in between an otherwise injury-riddled career that seemingly ended when he tore his ACL in 2009.
It looked like that would probably be it for Rush's basketball career as he ventured into R&B singing, even getting National Anthem honors at a recent Lakers-Pacers game, but the older brother of Brandon Rush announced on Twitter Thursday night that he plans to enter the D-League.
Just told my agent im ready to play, going to go the d league route to get some good run, havent been seen in over 2yrs gotta prove myself
It'll be interesting to see what Rush still has as he has been out of basketball for quite awhile now, but considering he was only known for his shooting during his career, any loss of athleticism due to the ACL tear probably won't be as pronounced considering that was never his forte anyway.
Once Rush officially signs with the D-League, by the way, he'll be the second player with a music video to my knowledge (Alando Tucker was the first) ... and that seems pretty important, right?
Reminds me of a member of 112. I forgot which one. It wasn't Slim, though.

I didn't know this about Kareem Rush, I'm surprised because I'm really into music and like to know these type of things. But based on that video Rush has some serious talent singing. But music isn't about just your vocal performance, you have to know how to sell yourself and relate to buyers then turn them into fans that's probably where he went wrong. I remenber Kerry Kittles use to be a good singer. A lot of basketball players are big into the rap scene. Metta World Peace still puts out singles which get played on hiphopdx.com despite all being terrible.
More like songs such as:
Love You Like I Did
It's Over Now
Love Me feat. Pastor Mason Betha
Only You (Remix) feat. B.I.G. and Pastor Mason Betha
Those were vintage 112 singles.
