Kareem Rush - Rush has been out for an extended period after a serious knee injury sustained with the Clippers early last season. He has been rehabbing since that time, as well as releasing some music, but has yet to make his playing return.
Rush signed with the Clippers for training camp, and was one of the few camp invitees league wide to win a roster spot. He appeared in the Clippers first 7 games of the season, going scoreless in 6 of them and scoring 9 points in the other, but then blew out his knee and was ruled out for the season. He survived on the roster until mid January, at which point the Clippers waived him to accommodate JamesOn Curry, whom they then waived a few days later to accommodate Bobby Brown. Bobby Brown made it until the end of the season.
Of course, when basketball players turn to music, it is not always about rap. Only 99% of the time is this so. Aaron Gray amply demonstrates this in about twelve paragraphs time. The rare and special beast will turn to another genre, particularly if they can sing. A famous example of this is NBA journeyman Kareem Rush, who has long pursued a second career as an R&B singer. After a serious knee injury early in the 2010 season, and more than a year out of the sport since, Kareem's second career has essentially now become his first. Despite the unlikely presence of a motorbike on a sandy beach, and the unwelcome presence of unnecessary autotune, it is clear that Kareem is talented.
Kareem Rush - A forgotten man, Rush is making a second comeback via the D-League after an initial one month attempt in March 12 that has been his only other action since January 2010. In five games for the Los Angeles D-Fenders, Rush has averaged 10.6 points and 5.2 rebounds - he has looked healthy, but unspectacular.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
