Knicks are basically bringing their entire front office to the Lottery, why would they do this if they are expected to get the #8 overall pick.

This is nothing more than David Stern and Nike's plan to place Ricky Rubio with the Knicks to better promote him in a system where he can flourish and be considered as somewhat of a savior to the Knicks.

Watch the Pete Maravich comparisons return due to the Nike marketing machine.

Ricky also has his own brand of Nike shoes which would probably be coming to a shoe store near you before his rookie season begins.

It's a lottery system, you can't be expected to get a certain number....

The rumor was that the Knicks envelope was refrigerated before being placed in the lottery bowl.

And Rubio is going to be a bust. Count on it.

I dont and never have believed its a true lottery system.

I personally believe David Stern & others decide the Lottery before it takes place to place certain teams and players in good situations.

Seriously how ****ed would the league be if the Suns ended up with the #1 pick?
By drafting Blake Griffin or Ricky Rubio either will be coming off the bench for their first season and its hard for the NBA to promote their #1 pick if hes a 6th Man.

Chances are Knicks get Rubio and Thunder get Griffin because it seems so right.

Not sure how you can consider a European guy to be a bust without seeing him play in an American game.

You more than likely havent seen any Rubio game other than the Olympics.


Good Call assclown.

I don't know this for a fact, so correct me if im wrong but, doesn't the draft take place in NewYork?? If so, this could be the reason they have the most representatives...

Doubt it's rigged, but Rubio isn't going to be sh!t. People saying he going to be the next Steve Nash.

This might be worst than Adam Morrison....

If Rubio better than JJ Riddick, I'll be surprised... I know it's too early to tell.. it's just my opinion. Some people think he might be the next Steve Nash, etc.. but I don't.

Th Draft Lottery takes place in New Jersey, and even the nearby Nets only have 1 representative.

As long as they don't rig a trade where Houston sends T-Mac for Larry Hughes and Eddy Curry, I don't really care.

What the **** does Ricky Rubio have to do with JJ Redick?

You obviously dont care or dont know so you just needed to think of a white player to compare Rubio to, but Rubio is Spanish so you have to compare him to Jose Calderon just because.

You make me ashamed to be a black poster on ISH you assclown.

I'll still be around.

But its way too early to call Bust on any player just yet, workouts havent begun yet and we dont know which players are going where or which players will officially be in the NBA Draft.

Also 1 year isnt enough to tell if a guy is a Bust, we'll see who's right by this time in 3 years, if you're still around.

Possibly.

Oklahoma City Thunder taking Blake Griffin at #2.

Sacramento Kings taking Brandon Jennings at #3.

No need for the insults...

Anyhow, in your opinion, how good do you think Rubio will be?

I only stated my opinion, what's wrong with that?
