Kid Rocks

Ricky Rubio is finally here.

Oftentimes, there’s very little said about overseas players, even if they’re slotted to be the “next.” Look at Andrea Bargnani. The cat went first overall three years ago and we still know less about him than we do Ricky Rubio. Talk about the power of YouTube all you want, the fact of the matter is if Ricky is creating hype. His game speaks louder than SLAM can shout. Our goal is to direct you to listen in the right directions…

We wouldn’t shut up about LeBron (still haven’t actually), leading the Young King’s hype train for many years, and now… well, now you and everyone else knows. So trust the hype on this Rubio kid as well. Sure, he’s 18 years old and has a ways to go, but he’s straight cash money.

    I’ve heard people disparagingly compare him to Jason Williams (eboy), but really, would that be so bad? What’s wrong with an entertaining, flashy point guard?

    ALWAYS BELIEVE THE HYPE ON FOREIGN PLAYERS!! Look how good Yi Jianlian, Muhammad Saer Sene, and Darko Milicic turned out!!

    Don’t you think it’ll make me looked gay if I had his wallpapers on my desktop?
    He had that John Amaechi look on him

    Cosign Sesa. At least have him holding a basketball so your co-workers don’t think you’re having pics of 18 year old boys on your wallpaper.

    You can thank SLAM for the extra black bg though if you want to put in some Jonas Bros. to surround him for more of that (SLAM commenters made that connection in another post), or take out Don Magic Juan from a pic and replace him with Rubio here, keeping the women or something. They gave you the option to easily customize and why complain on a pic you won’t even DL and use?
    You don’t have to justify why you’re not going to use something.

    ah right, it’s that time of the year when people are making dumb comments like “bust”, even though the players haven’t played a single minute of NBA Basketball yet. Give him a year or two (three) before calling some kid a bust, will ya?

  • Yassi
