Who has the bigger ego, Ricky Rubio or Brandon Jennings?

Mods, can we keep this here for a little bit, then move it to comparisons. Nobody looks at comparisons. :)

Yeah it's not really close. Jennings. People need to realize that whole Rubio thing is mostly his agent, not him.

Jennings all the way. You don't see Rubio trash talking, and he's actually a good player.

It is Rubio's Agent and Father talking, he'd play here if it were up to him.....

Jennings is just plain stupid, I vote jennings.

Did anybody hear the conversation Jennings had with Joe Budden? Yes, Joe Budden the rapper.

Agreed. Plus, he'd give up a good contract in Europe and have to make a huge buyout to get himself free of it.

I don't really put any of this on Rubio. He's just in a really lousy situation.

It might look like it's only Rubio's agent and dad, but you gotta believe Rubio told them what he wants. Someone asked him about Minn. before the draft and he said it was too cold.....wow seriously. Dude's garbage anyways i guarantee you he will be a bust.

hmm. jennings has been quite cocky, at least he's confident though haha. rubio hasn't really acted out, just his refusal to play for the timberwolves. so jennings seems really full of himself, and rubio is just being a stuck up *****. damn teenagers.

why did he bother entering the draft if he knew this was coming?

Why would he assume that the Wolves would pick two PGs?

I just think Rubio doesn't want to play in a small market like Minny. It's cold(as he said) and there isn't a large Spaniard community in Minny.

By the way, check your messages.

what im saying is why would he enter the draft if he knew he was going to have contract issues with his euro team.

Or better yet, how would he know that the Wolves would pick him??

Because most of the draft boards have him as #2 or #3, which would've given him enough $$$ to pay for his buyout.

It was totally unexpected that he would be picked 5th.

If Rubio wasn't still a kid, he'd be in the NBA. But back on topic, Jennings can't shutup.

same here woodbridge. say LA took him, i wonder if it would be different. if he was going to have to make such a big buyout on his contract then he shouldnt have entered the draft. thats just a poor excuse, when really he just doesn't want to play in minnesota. is that the reason he gave for staying in spain, the contract issue? i dont know much about it so maybe i should stay out of it haha.

haha i checked it woodbridge

Jennings for sure but how is rubio good ? 7 points 4 assists is good ?

actually it's 10 and 6, but only in 26 minutes

imagine 36-40 minutes of playing time.

the thing about Rubio is don't expect him to score in volume, but his court vision and his decision making skills are just spectacular, especially for his age.

i see, that makes it more clear to me.

And he's making only $97,000 with his Spanish team, and they're making him pay $6.6 million dollars just to get out of his contract.

So yeah he was pretty confident that he would be picked 2nd/3rd, which would've given him enough dough to pay for it.

He wouldn't pay a penny to get out of his contract.

Rubio is more of a snob. Jennings is a cocky jokester.

Rubio's ego is more of a turn off IMO.

I dont think either one. The knicks suck! Because he plays basketball he can't say that? And The Wolves knew Rubio was staying when they drafted him. That's why the Thunder passed on him at the last second, and why the Wolves also got another pg.

Don't even start! I don't feel like hearing sh1t from Knicks fans.

Why is this even a debate Rubio has had his agent and father do all his talking.

Jennings has been running his mouth pre draft, draft night and after draft night...

The best one that cracks me up was when he stated he not even a rookie since he played pro ball over seas.....

Ill go Rubio, but both are bad, and I dont know much about Jennings, Rubio gets drafted, and then ditches because he doesnt like the team he is on. well guese what Rick, the bad teams, are the ones that suck, you arnt going to get to chose your team. then just run off like a *****. god.

Rubio was in a lose-lose situation.

But I still think he's stand-off-ish.

He doesn't deserve to choose where he goes, he's yet to prove to anyone that.

u guys are funny for making fun of rubio, when KOBE did the same thing if not worse by stating that he will only play for the lakers and that anyone who drafts him will have to trade him to the lakers LOL AND THIS WAS WHEN HE WAS 17 lol get off rubio's nuts.
