Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio has known Lakers forward Pau Gasol since Rubio was in his late teens. Rubio knows Gasols game and how he ticks.
So it should be no surprised that Rubio interjected himself in the D’Antoni/Gasol scenario, and according to Larry Brown Sports via Hoops Hype, Ricky feel the Lakers are severely mistreating Gasol.
“Pau Gasol has given the Lakers a lot and I don’t feel he’s getting enough in return, especially as far as confidence,” Rubio said earlier this according to HoopsHype. “But he’s a pro. If he goes to another team, I think he would make a contender out of that team. Wherever he goes, he’s going to be fighting for the title.”
Now Rubio has spoken, and it’s not shocking since Minnesota just happens to be one of Gasol’s suitors. A frontcourt of Gasol and Kevin Love.
