Um, you do realize that's how EVERY NBA player's career starts right? They are the best at wherever they are (high school, college) and suddenly are in a league where everyone is as good as them.

He was a bitch and couldn't cut it. No biggie.

Lol I know for a fact this guy is going to be a Marko Jaric type at best. Solid 9 and 7 guy with active hands on D. All the Wolves fans acting like he's going to turn the ship around this year or within 3 years are annoying. I'm very glad by this news because a top 5 2012 pick for the Clippers is very likely if this guy isn't indeed some sort of franchise savior. I wish the Wolves well after this season but this season I'm going to be rooting against the Wolves as if they were a rival team.

And, Euroleage, this is a lose-lose situation for you, if Rubio sucks in the NBA people will mock you saying european baskeball is crap and if rubio does ok they will laugh of you for being wrong.

Spanoulis is 100 times better than Rafer Alson, John Lucas III, Luther Head.

He had a reason to complain. Van Gundy told him flat out he was not going to play because he hated every European player except Dirk and he wanted him off the team.

So yeah, he had a reason to sulk and complain.

Kosta Koufos told US MEDIA that Spanoulis is as good or probably even better than Deron Williams is. He said that Spanoulis was at least as good or better than Williams.

He should know, since he played with both of them. He said this while he was a teammate of Williams also.

He couldn't even start ahead of Rafer Alston, that's how much he sucked. He mentally thought he was the best player on the team or atleast equal to McGrady but in reality he couldn't even beat out Rafer Alston for the starters job and I dunno who the second string PG was but he couldn't beat out him either which is why he was Houston's 3rd string PG. If he was good enough he would have gotten minutes because Van Gundy hated Alston.

Rubio peaked when he was 15, the reason I hate on him is because there are all these idiot American fans who never have seen him play but assume he's going to be like Jason Kidd when in reality he's going to be like Rajon Rondo without the passing ability, rebounding ability or athleticism and mentally weaker.

OMG If Kosta Koufos said it it must be true, Koufos the GOAT talent evaluator

He is not close to as good as Jaric is.
