There is a reason Minny has been begging him to sign-up. There is a reason that clubs have approached Minny about varying trade scenarios.
Having said that, I think Irving will be a superstar. Rubio will be a starter, but not a superstar. jmo.
I'll just put it like this... If the Cavs traded EITHER of their lottery picks for the rights to Rubio, I just might have to find a different team to root for. I just don't see it.
