Former KU guard/forward Brandon Rush responds to questions Wednesday in New York. ESPN's draft coverage begins at 6 tonight.
Brandon Rush, who turns 23 on July 7, has been deemed "NBA ready," by so-called experts entering tonight's draft at New York's Madison Square Garden. Rush, whose brother Kareem plays for the Indiana Pacers, knows exactly what that tag means. "I've spent three years in college. I've developed my body. I've gotten stronger. I play the type of game they play in the NBA, pick and roll, up-tempo," former Kansas University guard/forward Rush said Wednesday at a pre-draft news conference for possible lottery picks (top 14) at the Westin Times Square Hotel.
