Brandon Rush wants to mirror Miller

brushAttention all real estate agents. The city’s soon-to-be newest millionaire is looking for a house.

Brandon Rush said he expects to sign a contract to play for the Indiana Pacers tomorrow and will be in Indianapolis this weekend looking for a house. He said he was scouting around central Indiana last week, but couldn’t find anything he likes.

And Rush will likely be looking for a nice big, comfy home. His contract will be a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $6 million. He also plans to establish roots here.

Rush recently said he’d like to be compared to Reggie Miller, not only for his three-point shooting prowess, but as someone who is a Pacers lifer and a team pillar.

During a recent interview, Rush was saying all the right things—talking about improving his defense, getting the ball to the open man and supporting the team’s established stars—especially Danny Granger.

“I’m ready to get going with the team hopefully Wednesday,” Rush said. “I’m ready to take it to the next level.”
  • Rush could be a solid pickup for Indiana. If Ford turns out to be healthy and productive, it could have made Bayless expendable. If Jack sees solid backup or role minutes, we could be set at Point. We can go small at times with the East being a little on the short side, probably not start that way, but the Ford, Dunleavy, Rush, Granger, Murphy/Foster/Rasho/Hibbert lineup is interesting. This could be a solid Pacers team. We even have a few pieces to package in a trade if we want to (Daniels, Williams, Tinsley, Rasho).
  • Reggie's home was on the market, unless it recently sold. Pretty spectacular gated home on Geist.
  • We really need to erect a Reggie Miller statue at the end of Georgia Street right in front of Conseco Fieldhouse. Now THAT would be awesome!

  • Yes, a Reggie statue. Good idea. This is a guy who passed up the opportunity to get a ring with the Celtics last season to stay loyal to Indiana and the Pacers. If Rush can be 1/2 of what Reggie was to this franchise, we'll be ok. We might even end up praising Larry Bird for this draft.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
