Yet Another Ricky Rubio Rumor, and Denial

Spanish media keeps reporting that Ricky is going to play in Spain fhe next two years, and David Khan keeps shooting the reports down. This feels like it could go on for an eternity: “On Wednesday, the Barcelona Mundo Deportivo daily said the 18-year-old point guard would sign with Regal Barcelona after a tentative contract buyout for more than $5 million with his DKV Joventut team had been reached. Wolves president David Kahn promptly denied knowledge of any deal. In today’s edition of El Periodico, the Spanish daily reports that DKV has accepted in principle a buyout of Rubio’s contract for $5.3 million, and that Joventut’s board of directors will meet Friday to ratify the deal. And this morning, Kahn wrote in an e-mail, ‘My comment from yesterday stands.”‘

    El Periodico sounds like the only newspaper worth buying.
    Hold the Elian Gonzalez jokes too please.

    There’s also a rumor going around that Rubio’s a b*tch, and no one’s denying the claims.

    So when I first read about Ricky Rubio in SLAM, I thought wow, he sounds good, I want to see his game. Now, I get more and more annoyed the more I see his name.

    At first I read Antons comment and was like “…” Then I LOL’d.

    Yeah, agree with Bear; Who Cares?! OK, he did play a good Olympics, he is a great player, but all the hype for someone who even has to prove he belongs in the NBA? According to the comments I’m not the only one ;-) .

    He declared for the draft a year early. He knew about all those contract issues. This is making him look really bad…

    He has been terribly advised. Either way, he was NBA ready… except for his contract, of course.

    1) Who cares about the Timberwolves?
    2) Who cares about this kid?
    3) Why is he getting more press then any other rookie especially the vastly superior ones?
    4) Do we know that a draft happen with guys who are on ACTUAL NBA rosters and will ACTUALLY be in NBA?

    All this talk about Ricky Rubio is giving me a headache.

  • JMac

    I bet Jonny Flynn will only use 1 year to wipe Rubio’s name away from the minds of Minnesota natives.

    @Coconut: NO, this is making the Loserwolves look really really bad. Everyone on the face of the earth knew he had a contract. Whats the big deal if he stands by his contract? I dont get it…..
