Default Anybody know Spanish well enough to translate this Rudy article?

http://www.marca.com/edicion/marca/b...o/1101271.html

I know its about Rudy Fernandez fearing not getting playing time from McMillan due to Sergio's lack of time, but thats about all I know without help. I really hope this doesn't keep Rudy from coming to the NBA. Rudy is apparently quite a bit better than Sergio so he shouldn't have to fear this so much. He may not get tons of minutes like he is use to, but I wouldn't expect him to only get Sergio minutes either.

Please Rudy, don't let "what ifs" keep you away from the Blazers.

Let's see:

First, he comments that DKV can probably be ableo to win ACB league this year, cause they raised their level to the better teams.

Second, he is very grateful that people in Portland was talking about him. He thinks it's strange for him Sergio doesn't get minutes, and he confess he fears a bit Nate McMilla put him in that situation.

He says he is not sure if he will go to NBA this summer, he wanna wait to the end of the season.

Well, more or less (I am not good at English) that's what he says. Now, I am Spanish, and I can tell you Rudyd didn't wanna go without winning a title, and he won the Cup this year. Everybody here thinks he will go to NBA this summer, If I had to bet, I would put my money he will be in Portlan for 2008-2009 season.

And you are rigth, he is much better than Sergio, and he is playing amazing this year. If one player dominates ACB like him, believe me he will be quite good at NBA (examples: Gasol (Pau), Scola, Nocioni, etc...). And he is not playing a ton of minutes, he averages 20.3ppg with only 28 minutes per game.

Thanks for the translation. I really really hope Rudy is in the states by next season. Do you know if people in Spain want him to stay in Spain or try his success in the NBA?

Of course, people in spain would love to keep him here, you know, it's easier to watch ACB games for us, cause NBA it's too late for us (usually, 1:00 AM here). We would love to keep him, and Gasol, Calderon, etc... but it's not possible.

But ACB is now small to him, and everybody knows Rudy needs to go to develop and grow more as a player. Everybody thinks he will go there at the end of the season, and if he chooses to stay one more year (to try winning Eouroleague) he will be for sure in 2009.

Rudy is NBA material, and he will be there soon. Only, please, pray McMillan to let him play.

I wasn't sure. I could see it as a win win situation for fans in Spain. Either he is playing in his home country for his home fans, or he is representing his country in the most prestigious league.

Portland can have another problem with Rudy.

He is a 24th draft, that is less than 900000$ a year. European teams can raise that offer so much (he isn't in a great club and he earn more now). It's seems than he can be offerd from 3-6 million dollars a year in Europe (Panathinakos and CSKA seems to be interested).

I think your GM should offer him a bit more than that 900000$ a year. ¿What would you do if you were Rudy? Difficult to guess...

Long term Rudy could end up making more in the US, but it is impossible for the Blazers to offer more than what you stated because of league rules on rookie salaries. I hope he will find the competitor in him that drives him to test himself against the best. I would root for him and support him through the whole process. And really, if he doesn't like it after about 2 years, he could always go back.

I really hope Rudy can come over next season... that would make Portland's offense so dynamic.

Roy is a certain style of play, and really, with him a pure PG would probably work best. But if teams adjust, McMillan can simply switch to a setup with Rudy, Oden/Przybilla, Aldridge, and 3-shooters, and the entire offensive dynamic is different, and the entire defense has to adjust.

Plus can you imagine Roy at point in the 4th with Rudy at SG, Outlaw at the 3, Aldridge at the 4 and Oden at the 5? That is a clutch lineup.

The Oregonian had an article that translated the same article I posted and added their own comments. The writer still seems to believe we have a shot at Chris Paul because he said to imagine a line-up of Paul/Roy/Rudy/Aldridge/Oden. That is still a pipe dream if you ask me, because Hornets will have first say at Paul and their team is not necessarily one a player feels the need to escape from.

In Portland has been untied the 'Rudymanía' and the statements of the general manager Kevin Pritchard cause they indicate that they want to the Majorcan escort there for the next season, but our player has something that causes he doubts him of his future in the Trail Blazers: the coach Nate McMillan.

Rudy spoke for Mark.com of its brilliant present in the DKV Joventut and of its future in the NBA. Although everyone gives for fact that will play in the Blazers -franchise that chose him in the last one Draft with the number 26- the next season, Nate McMillan (that already accumulates 300 victories in the NBA as the technician) seems to sow the doubt of the Majorcan one.

This year the Penya seems to be at last that step over that permit him to win the ACB. In the team you see it thus? Good, is always complicated. There are many good teams, a lot of pressure and the playoffs will be hard. It is true that to win the Cup gave us a lot of confidence and that we are well.

It distracts you that be spoken so much of the NBA? Not, I have to know to carry it. Speculates a lot with that, but I am tranquil. The dynamics that have to carry is the one that have carried up to now. My team is the DKV Joventut and I am to stop with him.

In Portland the press speaks of 'Rudymanía' and your videos in Youtube are very you followed there. What seems you? It pleases me a lot that the people of Portland is alert of me. But I try not to obsess me. This of Youtube is an invention. I see many videos there and i like that the people see mine.

You have spoken with Sergio Rodriguez ultimately? Not, because I have called him several times and I have not managed to contact with him. For me Sergio is a referring one and me strange a lot that the coach is not giving him confidence. Sincerely, fear gives me that McMillan do the same thing with me.

You will go next year? It do not I have determined, that is the truth. I do not know if I will give the leap now. When it finish the season we will see what is the best.

Therefore the press of Portland publishes that in two weeks Kevin Pritchard will go to Barcelona to see you and tantear what do you want to do... Oh, yes? It did not it know, they have not said me nothing. Good, if it comes already you know that I will be very nice with him (laughs), but him I will not be able to say right now if next year I will play in the NBA. That is the truth. Is a difficult decision and I have to think him.

An interesting fact about Rudy: His fathers are former basket players and his sister Marta is playing in the WNBA with the Sparks.

Saludos!!!
