Good Rubio article in USA Today

20

Some quotes and information I've not heard before, such as the following from Ricky... "I have to control more of the game. That's what a point guard has to do. We lost a lot of games in the last quarter, and that can't happen," Rubio says. "We had a chance, but we don't have to be happy because we had a chance. We have to be happy because we won the game. And we didn't. "That's not enough." ... "I like Minneapolis because it's not a small city or a (big) city. I call it a big town because it's not like (Los Angeles) or New York. I prefer this style a lot." ... "They don't attack you (in Minneapolis) like they do in L.A., for example, with Pau Gasol." ... "I gave (my) word that I'm going to come in two years. When you say it's (your) word, it's your word," Rubio said. "You have to do it. No matter what happens or how comfortable I was in Barcelona. … I decided to make the big step. And I know I made the right choice."
