    I feel bad for Rubio at this point...he should just go back to Spain and play for Barca. He gave the NBA thing a run, no shame in it.

    I'd definitely go ahead and ask Cavs to release me and let me go back to Barcelona lol. I would not want to live in Cleveland.

    I don't think a joint has taken this many hits

    Good deal for both teams...slight edge to Cavs.

    The crazy thing is that he leads Spain in the olympics and is good there.
    I think he just doesn’t fit NBA as well as he does Euro ball

    Watching the Olympics Ricky is still a good player, he'd be a dope 6th man on a team that needs creation, Clippers should have targeted him

    Sure didn't treat him like the Ruby gem.

    Rubio, Mobley, Jarrett Allen, Garland and Sexton. And is Love still there?

    Someone should text Ben Simmons and tell him "see what happens when you don't ever develop a jump shot? you end up in Cleveland!!!!"

    Mobley and Rubio will be absolutely unstoppable.

    Exactly, he torched Argentina on Thursday, then got traded that same day. Then again, Argentina is far from a defensive juggernaut...

    You should. Always.
