Rudy Fernandez and Ricky Rubio are sick.
 
Semifinals of the kings cup between Juventud and Real Madrid just ended. Juventud won, and I have to say Rudy fernandez and Ricky Rubio who play for juventud are sick.
This guys are going to be all-stars, whoever draft them are going to be really lucky.
Best spanish players ever.

here a good video on rickys passing skills. his 17 BTW



hes leading the ACB in steals

Belsius 02-09-2008 05:25 PM

this one is from Rudy, doesnt have a lot of things. But a couple of them are worth to see.


Dr. J. Naismith 02-09-2008 05:47 PM

I know Rudy's a projected 1st rounder, but is Rubio too? :confused:

Belsius 02-09-2008 05:48 PM

Rubio is suposed to be a top 5, 1st rounder I think.

WOW ... that good eh? Weird ... until you mentioned him I had never heard of the kid. :(

Belsius 02-09-2008 06:15 PM

They compare him with Pete Maravich, both in his way of playing and looks.

Nope, I think you've mixed up Rudy with the other Spainard Sergio Rodriguez who is with the Blazers, Thriller. ;)

Belsius 02-10-2008 12:06 PM

no, he is right, portland has the rights for Rudy. Actually sergio and Rudy talk a lot about Portland.
Its being said that Rudy really likes the idea of playing in porland, well who wouldnt lol.

Really? OK, my bad. I just know that lots of people get the two mixed up and didn't think that Rudy was actually drafted yet. :(

Kuzzy 02-10-2008 12:53 PM

i was hopeing we wud draft rudy
hes awesome
as for RUBIOO
:eek:
it wud be a dream come truee

Belsius 02-11-2008 02:05 PM

It seems like Rudy says he is not going anywhere anytime soon

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slu...v=st&type=lgns

Dr. J. Naismith 02-11-2008 02:07 PM

Probably a smart decision for him because he'll likely sit and rot behind Roy anyways. May as well continue playing overseas until either Roy is dealt somewhere or Rudy himself is apart of a deal. I'm thinking the latter will likely happen before Roy gets dealt anywhere soon. ;)

Rubio is in his third season in the Juventut's first team, and he's only 17. Rudy's rights were traded by the Suns to the Blazers.

Hey Belsius, you are forgetting Mark Gasol. Book it. Him and Rudy are the best in the Spanish league right now. Don't expect a soft guy, he is a true center, 7 feet and very strong, and he is adding some nice skills. If the guy goes to Memphis, Milicic is gonna be bored on the bench.

Belsius 02-13-2008 10:57 AM

Yep, I agree rapsfan, I used to think that Mark was too slow, but the has lost weight and become a great player, and he is tougher than his brother. ACB MVP probably too.

I have always wanted Reyes to go to the NBA, he is the toughest spanish player there is, he is badass, now that I think of it, could he play SF for Toronto?, I know he plays PF here, but he would completely solve torontos lack of rebounding and toughness.

rapsfan087 02-14-2008 11:53 AM

I guess his back problems make almost impossible to play at the NBA schulde.

I really miss those battles between Scola and Felipe Reyes, they were so tough and dirty on the paint.

fancylad 02-14-2008 12:08 PM

DAMN Spain is stacked.

It's gonna be real interesting to see how the next Olympics play out.

International ball is SO much better now that countries are more balanced.

rapsfan087 02-14-2008 12:36 PM

When USA used to win all, the only fun was to see who were gonna be the seconds. Now at least there are some teams that can win.
