I would bust a nut if we got Ricky Rubio next year. He is the chosen one.
Does anybody know if he is going to play for Spain in the Olympics this year? If so, how and when will I be able to watch him play?
CBS should televise the olympic games.
I will find links to watch the games online.
USA vs Spain should be the best match up...I feel Greece and Argentina are overrated.
Only 17 and is already dominating men in Europe.
Been pro since he was 14.
Thats bigger than what Gallinari has done at 17.
If he works on his jumper, he really have the complete offensive game.
He's a good defender also, he's like Iverson wit the steals and has Dhalsim like arms, his wingspan is rediculous and is one of the best perimeter defenders in Europe(which is special since he's 17 once again)
And who says Donnie doesn't have a plan??
1. Acquire scrubs duhon and roberson
2. Jettison Marbury so he can't play like an allstar in his contract year
3. Keep Zach instead of trading him to the clips to worsen chemistry and stop ball movement.
4. Make JC the core of the offensive schemes with his 39% shooting.
And with that my friends - will guarantee the knicks finish with the worse record in the league, get the #1 pick and grab Ricky Rubio.

Led the Euroleague Playoffs in Points, Assists, Rebounds and Steals. All four categories.
how tall is he and is he expected to enter the draft?
Who is this Ricky Rubio guy everyone is raving about? Doesnt he play for a Long Island team? I really dont know just want to know his stats and why everyone loves this guy.

I didnt know about this Ricky Rubio guy untill people on this site brought him up and then i checked out some videos of him and the first thing that came to mind was Pete Marivich. Then i went on Wikipedia and it says about him that the most common comparison is Pete Marvich, lol so i guess i share a view of many. I know he's elligible for the 2009 NBA draft so does anybody think we can pick up this guy becuase he looks extremely talented with great passing and ball handling ability. And is 6'3 prob be 6'4 at PG a tall PG. Any possibilities as a Knick?

There's no way of knowing if the Knicks will be able to draft Ricky Rubio, because the Marbury situation has yet to be resolved. If the Knicks waive, buyout, or trade Marbury, the Knicks are going to be horrible next year, and we'll get a chance to draft Rubio. If the Knicks keep Marbury and start him, the Knicks will most likely win a minimum of 30 games, and the Knicks will most likely not have a chance to draft him.
These are a list of players that I think the Knicks should try to draft next year:
Ricky Rubio PG
Hasheem Thabeet C
Blake Griffin SF/PF
Lester Hudson PG/SG

I like your list of player's that we should be drafting next year abcd, but you have to be realistic about the whole Marbury situation. He's done here in NY and he'll probably try and catch on with a Championship contender (Celtic's)so he can get a ring or he'll sit the year and go play overseas next year. He won't be traded because all we could get for him would be a bunch of bad player's with worse contracts, if we were lucky we might be able to get a draft pick for him but like I said ...it will come with baggage. If he went to the Celtic's would you still be a fan of his?
