The day before the NBA draft, Ricky Rubio played word association.
I said "Sacramento," and he said "Nice weather."
I said "Oklahoma City," and he said "My best friend lives near there."
I said "Minnesota," and he said "Too cold."
Would he come to Detroit? Who's to say? Who would we have to give up? Is it even possible?
Personally, I think Ricky would be tremendous, and I'd be willing to part with "building blocks" or "cornerstones" of our franchise in order to get him.
