There is a reason Minny has been begging him to sign-up. There is a reason that clubs have approached Minny about varying trade scenarios.
Having said that, I think Irving will be a superstar. Rubio will be a starter, but not a superstar. jmo.
I'll just put it like this... If the Cavs traded EITHER of their lottery picks for the rights to Rubio, I just might have to find a different team to root for. I just don't see it.

I think Rubio is more likely to sign with Minny (if he does) before the draft. So that will have a huge impact on who they draft.

I think NY would offer #17 (we'd have to pick for Minny b/c we can't trade our pick) for Rubio's rights, although if someone like Biyombo is available, I would rather take him.

Irving is gonna be the second coming of Chris Paul, so Minny should go ahead and draft him.

Forget Rubio. If he ever does find the courage to come over, there's no way he'll ever be close to the player that Irving will become.

The Minnesota beat writer thinks if they do get the 1st pick that they'd shop it

Same thing people said about Zach Randoplh.

No $hit Sherlock. I didn't even say Beasley > Melo.

But don't give me that BS statement. Beasley is still learning how to be a everyday SF, as well as being a first option.

Quote:
"Beasley should watch (Miami star) LeBron James(notes)," Artest said. "Beasley's actually a better shooter than LeBron, but the smarts are not there. He's talking so much trash instead of worrying about the game. He needs to become a winner." [...]
Artest said Beasley needs to learn another move on the court.
"He's so athletic and quick and strong," he said. "But eventually somebody's going to catch on to it."

Former Defensive Player of the Year Ron Artest on Beasley

Yep. Kahn loves Beasley and visa versa.

We need a defensive 7'0 center.

And I'm hoping Kahn can pull of a trade for one of our PG's.

Flynn for sure is on the trading block.
