JaRon Rush documentary debuts Monday night on Metro Sports

JaRon Rush may be the best basketball player to ever come out of Kansas City, but for all of his God-given talents, Rush never made it in the NBA.

Tonight at 7 p.m., the aptly titled Effortless: The JaRon Rush Story premieres on Metro Sports and looks back at Rush’s controversial high school years and catches up with a humbled Rush today.

Chris Gough co-produced the doc with Shawn Beldin, and he’s been creating some of the most fascinating pics about Kansas City’s forgotten sports history, such as K.C. On The Mat: The History of Professional Wrestling in Kansas City from earlier this year.

Effortless finds Rush admitting he’s had issues with alcohol dating back to high school and

regretting how his career ended.
