    yeah, i'm kind of sensitive to that. actually, it's pretty bad quoting an entire article rather than a synopsis and a link (bosses do look at page view numbers). but it's really bad quoting an entire article without either the link OR the author's byline. somebody talented put in a lot of hours making that right. let's make sure we credit him.

    I really wish Rubio would just come and play in the nba. I'm tired of occasionally hearing about him, remembering the potential from 3 years ago and wondering. I hope he just makes a 1year run at it. Would be cool if he could do his contract with a clause allowing him to return to Europe after his first season if he wanted. Though he has been far from godlike overseas since the draft anyways from what i hear
    Isn't Rubio coming to the Wolves next season? I read an article maybe a month ago that reported that but now I can't find it anymore

    He's "talking" to Barcelona now. I think he was just using the Wolves as leverage. Honestly, given the choice of Barcelona or Minnesota, I can't imagine who in their right mind would choose Minnesota.

    It's still unclear. Earlier this month, rumor was he had signed a Minnesota contract but wouldn't announce becuase he was still playing in the Liga play-offs. Then, he was "in discussions" with Barca again (could be contract, could be buy-out (which apparently is down to $1.4M from $6M last year...Minn. can only pay $500K, he has to pay the rest)). Apparently, he will announce his decision tomorrow, Friday the 17th. I suspect he'll be coming.

    I think any world-class player would play in the NBA over any other league.

    Watched more than a game, the lebron doc. Pretty interesting stuff.

    Watching it made me realize what (I think) causes him to act the way he does in big games. He believes he can turn it on whenever he wants. Sometimes he can. Other times... well...

    Watched it a couple days ago as well. He does have the tendency to turn it on and off since childhood. Not sure if it changed. Even though I'm not a big fan of his and wanted him to lose in the finals, I quietly rooted for him during game 6 because I wanted him to go apeshit on the mavericks like the Detroit Piston game a few years back.

    I'm hoping during the off season he will hone his game and come back more humble like he did in the documentary after they had the loss.

    Anyhow where's my toronto raptor fans at [​IMG] (know Im going to get laughed at) Kemba Walker for the 5th pick please!!!!!
