I have a question regarding Ricky Rubio who plays for them. Isn't he supposed to be playing for the Wolves? I'm pretty sure they drafted him. So what happened there?
He pussy'd out of the nba.[/quote:709b5d87f0]
euro league is for pussys
didint he still have contract with a spanish team still?[/quote:709b5d87f0]
HE KINDA PUSSIED OUT ...
it was really a money issue, according to NBA league rules a team can only pay a certain percentage to buy out a contract. He is and was under contract with FC Barcelona. His amount was so high, that if Minnesota was only allowed to pay a percentage, the rest of the balance owed would have been too much for Rubio to cough up ...
I just didnt understand why Minni went ahead and drafted him, FULLY KNOWING THAT situation ....
especially when they go out and draft 25 point guards that same draft!
I hope he comes though. The league is so fun now with all these great PG (and they are all so young!) I like to watch my guard play, especially now that Centers and Power Forwards forgot how to post!!![/quote:709b5d87f0]
Would be nice to see how he plays against NBA guards
Maybe Steve Blake will WOW us this year
