Sid Hartman asked Rubio how someone with his modest stats could help the Timberwolves. Rubio responded that some people with good stats are on losing teams. It's a team sport, not tennis. And that he has been a winner since he turned pro at 14.

"He has been a winner since he turned pro at 14." How has he been a winner since 14? His team has been a winner and unfortunately his contributions to the team have been modest. I truly hope he is successful as a T-Wolve fan, but I have my doubts.

Ricky will get absolutely owned in the NBA. Johnny Flynn is 10x better, faster, better shooter, and will be shame when he's traded for this kid.

The kid hasn't even played one game in the NBA and almost everyone wants him gone. Seriously...are you people ever happy?

I don't know what kind of weather you guys are having as I don't live in the cities right now, but I can imagine that seeing Minneapolis in the summertime has been much more inviting than when he visited for a few hours in the winter.

Rubio probably will be a flop. The T-Wolves drafted PG's and traded the 1 that will be a good NBA player. Did any of you see Ty Lawson averaged over 20 points a game for Denver in the playoffs. Decisions like that are why this org will never be a winner again.

"are you people ever happy?"- We'd be happy if Rubio had Lebron like numbers in Spain but unfortunately his numbers in Spain look a lot more like Luke Ridnours.
