Going to Memphis didn't go bad for Pau, right?

He went to a bad team where he had minutes and allowed him to grow as a player and be the team leader. Just what Ricky needs to reach his potential.

Unfortunately, he has all the leverage. He can just not show up and stay in Spain.

It's too bad for him that LA isn't even considering him. LA has already come and said they're taking Blake Griffin.

Maybe Sacramento can make a deal with Memphis for the pick.

This thread should be renamed "Rubio's Agent doesnt want him to go to Memphis or OKC" because I didnt see any quotes from Rubio in there.

But he got the minutes to develop. It his "first job" in the NBA, what he needs is room to improve, winning isn't important yet.

My bad. I was thinking of him withdrawing his name from the draft (he still can?). But even then he would be automatically eligible at some point.

Doesn't bother me, I don't want Rubio anyway. I'd just pick him anyway and then trade him away for solid PF. Although, if Rubio's agent wants him in LA, then fine, the Clipps can pick Rubio and we (Grizzlies) will have Griffin.

Problem solved.

They should tell that little punk to just stay playing Euroball then. If he doesn't like that he could end up anywhere and if he doesn't like the draft process, to hell with him. Can't believe he's trying to come into the NBA with this kind of garbage.

It's just his agent.

It's a lie!!!

Rubio wants to go to Memphis...He wants to play with his national teammate Marc Gasol.

He needs to fire his agent then. As long as his agent is spewing that stuff, I'm going to assume Rubio supports it.

it annoys me when fans see athletes as video game pieces and think that as a fan they are entitled to decide how a player should live his life.

Going to a new city in a new country is a career move. This is a kid's future career here and its no different than a business major deciding what to do out of college. Would you want Ricky Rubio telling you where you should or should not, could or could not accept a job offer? If not, then back off.

Being talked about comes along with being a public figure. If I didn't want people talking about me, I wouldn't be trying to play basketball for the NBA.

The thing about the NBA is that he really has no choice right now. The draft process is simple, you go wherever you're picked. Do you not realize this? What makes him so special that he gets to pick what city he goes to?

Why are you on an NBA forum if you're so against discussion on players and prospects? I'm not trying to say where he should go, I'm just saying he should have to be like everyone else and go where he is drafted without b*tching.
