[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rubio wants to play for Celtics! : You could be right, it's just unfortunate that you only wrote "Rubio wants to play for the Celtics!" If you wrote "Rubio wants to play for the Celtics, Knicks, or Heat!" I would have believed you. Is it because you're an engineer and not an expert on writing proper English?

I once worked for a company whose entire operations were based in Denver and had been for over 100 years. They had operations around the globe but was a Denver based company. They hired a new CEO who was from France and he wanted to maintain and office in Paris and London and felt that if he had to go to the US he did not want to fly all the way to Denver so they moved the entire operations to just outside of Boston. The employees were told if you don't want to relocate to Boston you no longer have a job. There were employees that had been with the company for 30 and in some cases 40 years - almost none of them moved. About 2 years after becoming CEO the guy was fired.
The absolute epitome of arrogance.
But I digress....
If the BIG 3 were closer to the end, I would trade just about anyone on the roster for Rubio.
The Heat have the best point guard in the league and I am sure the Knicks feel the future is bright with Felton running the team.
Atlanta is the busiest airport in the country so I would think Hotlanta would be an option for Rubio as well.
The bottom line as far as I am concerned re. Rubio is the GM that drafted should lose his job. He took point guards with consecutive picks thinking that someday Rubio would be the point guard of the future and obtw we also have Jonny Flynn.
The price of gold has done nothing but go up for the last several years and is generally a good inflation hedge but there is nothing more valuable than a top 10 pick in the NBA and using one on Rubio should have a been a job-ending decision for the GM.
There are zero foreign guards that should ever ever ever warrant a top ten pick and only a handful of BIGS - Pau, Dirk, Bargnani. Foreign picks should be late picks where you don't expect to get much and are lucky when you do (Parker, Manu, Varejao, and hopefully maybe someday Semih).
The Cs have nothing to offer and nothing to gain by attempting to get Rubio - the only benefit (if you want to call it that) would be that they could become the first team in history to have back to back point guards with the same initials and that with a buck and a half you could get a diet coke..............
