Ricky Rubio Wants Out
Rubio said today that if Minnesota doesn’t make the playoffs next year he wants out of town. I have a few a questions regarding this. Would this matter for the Timberwolves? They have plenty of young talent to the point where if they can get a good deal for him and its not like Rubio lights up the stat sheet. So why not move him and play LaVine at PG? He’s an athletic freak and it finally looks like he figured it out and can play to his potential. Plus we all know he can absolutely SLAM. Second question, with all the young talent they have why would he want to leave even if they don’t make the playoff next year? They’re clearly close. They have Andrew Wiggins, who can ball he just doesn’t like to play much defense, and the unanimous rookie of the year in Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns is a freak. He reminds me of Anthony Davis but maybe better and hopefully less injury prone. Not to mention he has KG teaching him up for at least another year. Last question, why would he ever even bring it up that he would want to leave a year in advance? That’s just so stupid. That brings down team moral and, in my opinion, will make his teammates not like him. Honestly, if I’m the T-wolves I’m trading his ass ASAP for a draft pick or some young talent.
