Rubio says he wants to stay in Europe until he wins Spanish and Euro League championships

 

Rubio Not Sure To Come To The NBA?

In an interview with the French newspaper L’Equipe, Ricky Rubio explains his choice to sign with the FC Barcelona and stay in Europe: he wants to win everything here before coming to the NBA. But is he really sure to come? Maybe one day…

“Ultimately, I preferred to stay in Europe. When I stand back, I know I made the right choice. We’ll see if I’m going to the NBA one day, when I feel ready,” Ricky Rubio said. Asked if his choice to stay in Europe has a link with the fact that he was drafted by a weak team like Minnesota, he denied: “No, otherwise I didn’t enter the draft. Simply, there were many reasons … The clause, but also the feeling that I had not done everything in Europe. For example, I have never been Spain’s champion. I have never won the Euroleague either. That’s why I signed with Barcelone, I want to win everything.”

He also denied that he was afraid to play against NBA players: “Afraid? No, certainly not. I already played against NBA players. That was not the problem.”
