Rubio Says Kevin Love Shouldn’t Be Our Leader

Rubio takes shots at Love.

In the midst of the Kevin Love trade rumors, teammate Ricky Rubio decided to take a stand for his team.

He is a special player, his numbers are unbelievable but maybe our leader must be other player. He is our leader in points and another things but he can’t be or he doesn’t want to be our “voice” leader. Many kind of leaders. Perhaps he shouldn’t have been our leader, perhaps Kevin Martin could have been our leader because he had more experience, perhaps I could take a step ahead to be the definitive leader.

I don’t think Kevin Martin is the guy you want leading your team, but Rubio makes a valid point. Your leader can’t be someone who doesn’t want to be there.
