Ricky Rubio Criticizes the Lakers for Their Treatment of Pau Gasol

by December 19, 2012

Ricky Rubio came to the defense of his Spanish National Team buddy Pau Gasol, calling out the Los Angeles Lakers for the way they’ve treated the talented forward. According to Rubio, Gasol isn’t getting the respect he deserves (which, we’d guess, Pau completely agrees with.) Per Hoopshype: “Wolves guard Ricky Rubio is not happy with the way the Lakers are treating fellow Spaniard Pau Gasol. ‘Pau Gasol has given the Lakers a lot and I don’t feel he’s getting enough in return, especially as far as confidence,’ Rubio said. ‘But he’s a pro. If he goes to another team, I think he would make a contender out of that team. Wherever he goes, he’s going to be fighting for the title.'”
