Cool Rubio wants to play in NY, Boston or Miami

What a schmuck!!

Quote:
I didn’t feel good last summer,” Rubio said last month in a postgame interview in Vilnius, Lithuania. “I was nervous. That was the first time I didn’t play well. It was an experience for me. It helped me to learn, to appreciate when things go well that you’re doing the good stuff; when things go wrong, you have to learn, to practice more, to improve more.”

Though 28 games in the 2010-11 season, Rubio has continued to struggle. He is shooting just 32 percent from the field, including 11 of 61 from beyond the arc, and his team has lost more games in the ACB and in the Euroleague than it did all of last season.
Quote:
The Timberwolves continue to push him toward the N.B.A. as soon as possible, contending privately that they have a commitment from him for next season. But Rubio’s camp does not appear to be convinced.

“The bottom line is, why would he want to play in Minnesota?” a senior member of Rubio’s camp said this month. “He’ll continue to say all the diplomatic things, and Minnesota needs to keep his value up for trade purposes, but the family’s preference is to be on the East Coast, specifically New York, Miami or Boston. He wouldn’t be troubled if he has to stay another year.”

Rubio in Miami? He'd be getting 20 assists per game.

No way: there would then be 3 different players who are only effective when they have the ball in their hands. Terrible chemistry.

I'm off the Rubio bandwagon; I'm not convinced he can be an impact player in the NBA.

this is complete BS if it's really coming from him

Does he think he's Carmelo??? LeBron? or even Bosh to a certain degree to where he can dictate where he plays at the age of 19/20?

GTFO, if I was the Wolves, I would just keep his rights or trade him to a struggling to team get rid of this PROBLEM

Nothing wrong here. Nothing good either.
But it's not even his words. And it's just a priority, not order.

Article doesn't even state that those are Rubio's words. For all we know, this could be coming from his mom or dad or aunt or uncle. It says that it is the family's preference, not Rubio's.

lol We got a speculation article yesterday about Nene possibly wanting to play in Miami too. That would be something to think about, Rubio and Nene? I wouldn't put any money on it happening, but damn.

PG Rubio-Arroyo-Chalmers
SG Wade-Jones
SF James-Miller
PF Bosh-Haslem
CE Nene-Anthony-Ilgauskas

That's just the core I would expect, we might bring back Patrick Beverly and Da'Sean Butler, Juwan Howard., Jamaal Magloire and Eddie House might retire or go elsewhere and I imagine we would keep big Dex Pittman too.

Why wouldn't he want to play in Minnesota? He could hang out with Averman.

can't believe the overreaction from some of the members here...if you put these 2 quotes together then it could actually be his grandmother talking for all we know
and exactly WHERE in this article does "Rubio" say he wants to play in either New York, Miami or Boston ???...NOWHERE...his "camp" says it, not him

so please...can we at least read the whole article before we start calling players "schmucks" ???

these are in fact the quotes from Rubio in that article.....

Quote:
“I didn’t feel good last summer,” Rubio said last month in a postgame interview in Vilnius, Lithuania. “I was nervous. That was the first time I didn’t play well. It was an experience for me. It helped me to learn, to appreciate when things go well that you’re doing the good stuff; when things go wrong, you have to learn, to practice more, to improve more.”
Quote:
“I try to help the team,” Rubio said. “It doesn’t matter if you have to score 50 points or zero. If I help the team, I don’t think of my stats.”
Quote:
“I’m not focused on the N.B.A. right now,” Rubio said. “Right now, I don’t want to talk and I don’t want to think.”
maybe it's just my old age kicking in but i don't see 1 reference (from him) as to where he wants to play next year

schmuck indeed
