“The bottom line is, why would he want to play in Minnesota?” a senior member of Rubio’s camp said this month. “He’ll continue to say all the diplomatic things, and Minnesota needs to keep his value up for trade purposes, but the family’s preference is to be on the East Coast, specifically New York, Miami or Boston. He wouldn’t be troubled if he has to stay another year.”Well every other Celtics blog seems to be posting this as a rumor, so I figured I might as well (Damn peer pressure). Nowhere is it said that Boston is his preference mind you. I take it as the East Coast is closest to his home in Spain and on the East Coast, Boston, New York, and Miami are all cities with good basketball teams and significant Spanish speaking populations. That said for fun I'll ask the following question: In the offseason would you trade Rajon Rondo for Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio?
Feel free to comment on your reasoning.
