Understanding Brandon Rush's Game

 

I've been seeing a lot of comments criticizing Brandon Rush's passiveness on offense.  I used to be part of that crowd, but I think I understand Brandon's game now.  He plays very similar to Bruce Bowen.  He's probably the team's best perimeter defender.  He's got good footwork, quick hands, and strength to body up against the opposing team's scoring guard.  On offense, he seems content to stay in the corners and be available for the open 3 / create space for the post players.  I think that's ok.  Rush has good handles and hops, and can finish strong on drives - but that doesn't seem to be his role.  I am happy with the way he plays defense though.  If he further improves his defense, I think he'll help the team in the playoffs.
