Rubio Staying in Spain


According to realgm.com, Ricky (Youtube) Rubio is staying in Spain for a few more seasons afterall. I know I was in the minority in that I wanted NOTHING to do with this kid, but its still discouraging that were not going to be able to watch him in the L this year. I know Minnesota isnt exactly the picture-perfect location for a European seeking an American local, but come on bud! He wasnt the first player, nor will he be the last, to be drafted by a City that they dont perceive to have the ideal zip code for their interest...Hell...Say what you want about a guy like Stephon Marbury, but I clearly remember watching him cry tears of joy on Draft Night, and that was even after he knew he was Minnesota bound (post Mil trade). At least he played the game!!!! ...If this report holds true, has Rubio officially entered the class of guys like Stevie Franchise (can we even still call him that?) , John Elway  and Eli (Im a spoiled bitch) Manning?!?! ....And I really dont buy the argument that....." He's gotta contract to pay off..... He'd be pretty much playing for free... etc etc). If this kid was as good as advertized, he (and his agent) should have gotten off their lazy asses and actually worked out for teams, like every other player in the draft did....This story just reinforces my argument that Petrie made the right move by not drafting this spoiled brat....I hope this report is wrong and that he actually hoops this year, but the chances of that aernt looking so good right now..


True, this story hasnt been picked up by major news corporations like ESPN, etc....But I wouldnt at all be surprised if its picked up by the media in the next 48 hours or so....

Eventhough Ive always felt that Evans was the right pick, I was still looking forward to seeing this kid play this year-
