Translation
Ricky Rubio talked for the first time about his future after the Lottery was Held.
He strongly pointed out in "el punt" " If there isnt a good Project* im not going to the nba"

In Usa speculation is common nowdays about Rickys Future.

The Spaniard gave confirmation that his Agent has beggining the round of contact with the Gms.

"We have to consider wich option is in my best interest, Memphis may got the second pick but that means NOTHING" stated the PG.

The truth is that the project is whats draws more interest out of me , "draft position is important because the higer pick the higer status you get, but you also have to take on account what team drafts you with waht kind of project and what kind of PLAYERS**"

Rubio didnt rule out playing one more season for Jouventut, " there is definetly a psosible scenaria that i play one more year for jouventot pending on the pick number and final negotiation, but mainly pending on the wealth of the Buy out my manager is negociating with Jouventut."

Its clear that Ricky will only go to play Nba in a good team " if there is not a good projecft for me im not going, if i go its because there is future".



* Project as in a clear plan on rebuilding with the right pieces and with clear ideas and objetives well structured.

** as i always said its not about the money, the market or **** is about not wanting to compete with established point guards, he does not want to rot in teh bench as happened to sergio rodriguezs, if he is not a starter his growth as a player and ceilling will come down so he wants to have the starting spot or a LOT of minutes ASSUREd.

god damn even an NBA rookie won't get starter minutes in his rookie season unless he's really good

I like Rubio as a player but don't expect to get minutes and ***** about your draft position when you haven't even played a single minute in this league.

If you ACCEPT your role FIRST, you can build on it and make a name for yourself.

Oh yeah and Ricky Rubio is on the same skill level as these players :rolleyes:

Kobe didn't start and didn't get as many minutes as he does now during his first 2-3 years in the league. It wasn't until they traded Eddie Jones that Kobe got the regular minutes.

He might owe Jovi $8 million, ROFL. I don't know if I would be excited about going to Memphis and trying to find a way to payback the $8 mil I owe.

I don't blame him. Donnie Walsh make it happen! In NY he can endorse ANYTHING and make that money right back. He can go on tour with the Jonas Brothers and it'd be a smash hit as long as he's in Ny. Ricky Rubio dog scoopers. IT DOESN'T MATTER!

No.

Bynum has a higher ceiling than Marc. And Rubio won't do better defensively RIGHT NOW than Farmar.

I'm a big fan of Ricky, in fact I want him to do well in this league. But let's not get ahead of ourselves too early.

If a player is good enough he shouldn't need starting minutes handed to him. If he puts in the effort he will get a chance to show what he has. Good enough players come in and make an impact whether they are starting or not.

Ask Calderon how it felt that he was DOOMED to be TJ fords reserve until he Injured and Sam smith saw the light.

Ask Pau how he felt when he arrived in memphis and Jason williams was the supposed go to guy and he had to spent the first 5 game son the bench behind STROMILE SWIFT and Battier was the player the franchise was showcasing as the future of the franchise.

Ask how he felt when the folowing year they drafted Gooden supposedly to put gasol on the bench.

Yes, the only rookies to ever struggle to get PT are Euros. No American player has ever struggled to get playing time. Ever. Solid point.

Like Beasley. He came in, and was the first option, and they just handed him the keys to the franchise as a rookie.........

Darko has gotten minutes since, and still hasn't shown dick.

And I really don't know if you know what the **** you're talking about.


Pau, rookie year, 82 games played, 79 games started, 36mpg.
In his career, of all the games he's played in, he's started all but 6.
He's never played less than 31.5 mpg in any season.


Bargnani, rookie year, 65 games played, only started 2. Still got 25mpg.
His second year, he hit a terrible slump, and played less because of it. 23.9mpg.
This year, 31.4mpg, while starting 59 of his 78 games.



Calderon, rookie year, 64 games played, started 11, 23.2 mpg.
2nd year, 77 games, 11 started, 21.0 mpg
3rd year 82 games, 56 started, 30.3 mpg
4th year, 68 games, 68 started, 34.3 mpg

Conversely.

Rookie year minutes per game for American players:
Greg Oden- 21.5mpg
Kevin Love- 26.3mpg
Michael Beasley- 24.9mpg
Joe Alexander- 12.1mpg
Jerryd Bayless-12.4mpg
Corey Brewer- 22.8mpg
Spencer Hawes- 13.1mpg
LaMarcus Aldridge- 22.1mpg
Rudy Gay- 27mpg
Marvin Williams- 24.7mpg
Devin Harris-15.4mpg

and the list goes on and on.

So please, next time, actually know what you're talking about before you bring weak *** arguments in here

Maybe, maybe not. If he is THAT good, he'll get the minutes. If he really is a legit superstar rookie as you claim, he'll get the playing time. But you've just put Rubio in the league of several Hall of Famers and saying he will be that good. Guys that good get minutes, regardless. If he truly is that talented, it won't matter.

Crooner, you can keep posting examples all day of players from Europe who didn't get their "due time" their rookie year.

You know how many minutes Kobe got his rookie year? 15.5

You know how many minutes Pippen got his rookie year? 20.9

You know how many minutes Stockton got his rookie year? 18.2

I can do this all ****ing day.

Point is, if Rubio is good enough to play 35 minutes a game, he will. If he's not, he won't. It won't have a god damn thing to do with the fact that he's from Spain. It will have to do that he's not totally NBA ready at 18.

IM sure if Clipers get him he wont mess with Baron and he wouldnt mess with Kidd or Nash, in fact i think he would LOVE to back up Nash or Kidd for a year and play 20 mpg while learning for them.

but he of course WONT back up players that are WORSE than him like Conley or Westbrookd.

^Petro could play PG and Drexler could play SF so dont tell me there wasnt room for geting him 25 mpg.

Maybe. That was also a different era though.

That was 1989-1990, when there were what, 3 international players in the NBA. Yeah he had talent, and maybe he should have played more. He was a much bigger unknown at the time.

Also the Blazers also were contenders that year, winning 59 games. and title contenders don't just give a ton of minutes to rookies in general.

Bottom line, if Ricky is good enough, he'll get his god damn playing time, and thats all their is to it. Nobody is going to draft him top 5 with the intention to play him 15 minutes a game. If he really is NBA ready, he'll play. If he's not, he won't. That god damn simple.

So it would be impossible for Utah to move the combo guard wall to sg? Since they essentially don't have one. Sure brewer is decent, but he's more suited for SF. Or they couldn't trade the pick?

Now you're just making up hypothetical's to try and prove a point. If a player can contribute at a high level for 30 minutes a game, teams are going to try and find a way to do that.

It Utah got the #1 pick next year, you don't think they'd attempt to move it? trade down a few spots to still get a top prospect and then some, because they don't need wall?

If Rubio is as good as you say he is, which is apparently in the Tim Duncan, Jason Kidd, LeBron James, range, he'll get his minutes.

memphis would take him with the thought of trading conley(not for rubio to be a back up)

i also expect him to struglle a bit at the begining until the roids make their effect and he bulks up.

Im sure they woudl hange him the Soft, does not deffend label as soon as he arrives and they will never remove it no matter if he is a BEAST deffending and stealing balls.

you continually make assertions about "American Chauvinism", and then make these kind of broad sweeping generalizations about our attitudes and what we'll do and how we'll label a player, which itself is incredibly chauvinist. You do get that don't you?

Well iono why Rubio singled out Memphis & OKC. Iono why his agent doesnt mind SAC? SAC has NO PLAN whatsoever. They have NO MONEY! Not a wealth of picks like Portland/Minny/OKC/Memphis! NO coach! Team looks doomed!

Anyway, I hope Rubio forces his way to NYC

If he stays in the draft he does have a choice because memphis is not going to waste a #2 pick on guy who doesnt want to play for them...they will draft him then trade him most likely so they get a player or 2 they want or need a later first round pick to boot.

That would be the absolutely smartest thing to do.

You can't knock a guy for wanting to compete for a championship his first year in. He doesn't care about the money. Thats why most guy care about a high draft pick because they get paid more. This kid already gets paid. He wants to be on the best team to compete for championships. He is not dreaming of the nba to get out of the ghetto. Rubio is a winner and winners do what they have to do to keep winning.

Hellcrooner you are a clown. He is not better than Westbrook at this point. He's a ****** rookie for god's sake. Look at his stats vs real starts against the dream team last year. Not all that impressive, because he is young!!! STFU already with this stupid whining of yours.

He's a douche for turning down the Thunder. They have a great future.

I'm not too sure if he'll have a bright future in NY as well, knowing them trying their best to pursue LeBron.

But if LBJ stays and they get Bosh or Amare, I think Rubio would be a good fit with D'Antoni's.

I really hope the Kings some how manage to get this guy. He would be a perfect fit.
