Who cares, Rubio seems like a d-bag kid who is just pissed off he got drafted by the Timberwolves, and not a bigger/better team.

Of course NBA players are going to say it was good for him not to join the T-pups. Less competition. LOL

Does the AP really employ people who say "remained weary of predicting anything" rather than the correct (and elementary) "remained wary of predicting anything." With so many people out of work, it is frustrating to see people with such basic deficiencies holding down jobs that could be done by many other people -- and I include in this indictment the proofreader at the PP who couldn't be bothered to catch this simple error.

I'm kind of glad Rubio didn't come to the wolves yet it will give us time to fall in love with Sessions and Flynn then we can trade Rubio for a pure small foward since Corey Brewer is a bust . But if Rubio got drafted by any major market team he'd be in america now so keep the spoiled cry baby over there, cause I'd hate to see Tony Parker and Branden Jennings use him Go Woles !

Hey David Stern, can you say "tampering?"

DPoe, You say Corey Brewer is a bust after you only seen him play one rookie season (he only played 15 games year 2 because of injury)? He only got 22 min a game his rookie year. And he's ALREADY a bust? Come on dude!

David Stern should look into tampering. If a player from another NBA team got into Rubio's ear and talked him into NOT coming to the Timberwolves, especially a player from a team in our division....

Ah the kid heard that it is very hard for a non black to make it in the NBA. Money is not everything to everybody, the kid wants to be able to walk when he is 50 years old.
