Default Why are Brandon Rush Rookie cards going down in value?

Just looking through the Beckett, and every single Rush card has a down arrow next to his name. Did he get hurt real bad or what?

My guess is that its just an overdue market adjustment on him. He came into the league having been a star player on a championship college team and having a fairly well known brother in the NBA. So those factors led to his cards initially being priced higher than most of the other non-lottery rookies. But after a relatively disappointing rookie season (not in top 20 among rookies in efficiency rating) there isn't enough interest leftover from his college days to maintain those early values.

He was having a tough time adjusting in the begining of the year on a team with some major problems but if u look at his last 3 games he put up...

21 pts 7 boards
27 pts 3 boards
24 pts 5 boards

And most of his game with 33 min + he put up almost 20 a game, the guy has potential but will get no were or receive no respect with the Pacers unless they make some drastic changes FAST
