Your Honor, and ladies and gentlemen of the jury, a serious crime is about to be committed. I know that this must sound strange, at least in a couple of ways. First, the matter before us is SERIOUS, unlike our recent deliberations over Blake Griffin's nickname. Second, this crime HAS NOT YET HAPPENED. Frankly, we don't even know what it's going to be, nor if it will be justified. So your task today is strange, yes, but all the same we ask you to pass judgement.
The evidence before the court is plain and uncontested. The Clippers invited Mr Rush to join their camp this preseason, despite having 14 players signed and unlikely to take on a 15th. Still, Kareem has seen significant minutes in 4 out of 5 games and has shot well in 3 of them, including 2 clutch 3-pointers at the end of last night's game against Utah. If he gets some opportunity and plays well in tonight's big game against the Fakers, then we're likely to see a much larger press corps in this courtroom tomorrow. People will be asking, "Do the Clipper's have serious intentions for Mr Rush? Or is this just part of some devious Sterling ploy? Who really has a shot here, then... K.R.?"
