    How's this possible? If you put yourself in the draft, isn't it to play in the NBA which means coming over in his case???

    That's not good, if true.Llull is the better fit for a half court team like ours as compared to De Colo.

    He did not enter into the draft. He was drafted without giving any consent.

    Who? I hope AB isn't going anywhere, but I must admit he is very valuable trade bait. In Morey and his team of computer stat geeks I trust.

    No. For one, international players are automatically in the draft at a certain age or something. He doesn't have to declare to be draft-eligible. For two, I would think being drafted in the NBA could help him in salary negotiations in Europe (of course, in that case you wouldn't want to say you didn't want to come to the NBA).

    But, this source is just someone posting on a BBS. I can't give it much credibility.

    Does this do it for you? That's Rubio rolling on the floor, acting like he was just hit by a Mack truck, AKA Llull.

    I don't know if somebody mentioned but Llull is selected few days ago to Spain's national team.

    Good luck, I hope we see best of him...

    He didn't make the actual team. He made the practice squad.

    How many years do you think it will take before we see Llull here with the Rockets?

    Looks more like his left foot slipped on a wet spot and he pulled his hamstring.

    His hammy? The hammy must have snapped clean off and bungeed up into his crotch then, from the way he is holding himself.


    Rubio was juked so bad he tore his nutbag. HARD.

    LOL that's how I see it too. Dude was acting like a soccer player and was trying to decide what part of his body to hold and flop around on the ground wincing in pain.
