It is pretty sad to see athletes do this. Especially newcomers in the league who want to try and dictate how things go. They need to realize how lucky they are to have a shot at getting paid to play basketball.

Well, in Ricky Rubio's situation, he basically isn't a new comer. He is already an established professional baller, in Spain. The way Rubio sees it... the NBA is lucky to acquire him. Which.. may sound ridiculous but.. it's possibly how he and his agent are thinking.

He needs to stay in Spain, at least until 2012... if he doesn't get what he wants.. in 2012.. he will probably never come to the NBA.

Rubio already has an endorsement deal with Nike including his own shoe in Spain.

Obviously the deal increases when he comes to the United States, Nike will cover it for it to happen.

Unless Rubio get's what he wants. He is not going to stay in the draft..

Also.. how would you feel as a teammate of Ricky Rubio.. knowing he doesn't even really want to be on the team? This is going to turn out bad .. very bad.. in my opinion, if he stays in the draft and is drafted by Memphis.

Sounds similar to Maravich.

He'll stay in the Draft, they'll just force Memphis or OKC's hand to make a deal to one of a list of teams.

Or teams could let him slip to #4 to Sacramento.

I seriously doubt Rubio cares who drafts him. If you guys are going to put the blame on anyone, put it on the people advising him.

C'mon now. The guy is a star where he's at. I'm sure he doesn't want to go to a team where he probably won't even start. Memphis has Conley, and OKC has Westbrook. A 17/18 year old going from where he's at to a bench player on a lottery team isn't going to sit well with him. I'm quite sure he DOES care which teams and what opportunities he has, otherwise there's no incentive to enter the league. That's the point people seem to be missing. A D-league player isn't going to care what team he gets on, as long as he gets a shot. RR doesn't care, because he already is in a nice spot right now, so he will only make the transition if it puts him in a better situation.

actually, if memphis draft him. Rubio would LOSE money playing for memphis until he gets out of his rookie contract. So I think he cares.
