    Joe could have done so much more to ruin not just his career but his legacy. Joe as far as I can tell hasn't said one bad word about the situation that AI has to take as much blame as Currey Rip and the rest of the team for last year.

    Actually there's a few more. AI was traded for Andre Miller, and with Miller Philly got better. Then AI was traded for Chauncey and with CHuancey Denver got alot better. Then of course there was The Griever. So who ruined AI's career?
    • The Griever
    • Chauncey
    • Dre Miller
    • Joe or,
    • Curry?

    I was thinking of Arnie Kander.

    For many years straight, Kander has been able to keep our men on the court heading into the playoffs. But last year was a major exception. Kander completely blew it and AI was hung out to dry.

    I guess I could have created a new thread for this question and had a poll too and it would not have died with the blame going to Roscoe.....maybe we wait to beginning of the season and if he is still unsigned we wait to see the media fallout and then do our poll....

    Is any NBA team still looking for the Answer? - NBA - Yahoo! Sports


    It seems he only has HIMSELF to blame.

    That is a low blow. I can't believe you would go there.

    Well I'm not going to lie. He hurt himself strongly by not accepting the bench role.

    Himself?

    How about:
    Curry for abandoning the highly successful small ball experiment
    Joe D for doing acid and trading for him
    Billups for growing up in Denver and therefore getting traded back there
    Rip for outplaying him
    Arnie Kander for failing to properly treat AI's near fatal back injury
    Stuckey for insinsting on handling the ball on occasion
    The fans for wanting the team to win
    The official scorekeepers for failing to register about 25% of his made baskets.

    The list goes on and on. Please reconsider your stance.

    I don't care if you don't like the coach's experiment. You're paid to do your job and when you say that you're going to follow your coach's assignments...you better do them.

    If the boss thought you were the guy to help this team and put them over the "bump" and went out and traded for you. Do whatever you did to get wanted and traded for.

    Joe wanted Melo first. Their GM simply just kept offering AI.

    Rip wanted to show that he deserved the starting job. That he didn't it shouldn't have come down to a vote, that the best man deserved the starting nod.

    Considering that AI went to Georgetown doctors for his back..I don't see how you can blame this on Arnie.

    Stuckey was never selfish throughout the season.

    Considering the Pistons have just went to the ECF, expectations were high for fans. You don't go to the ECF one year and next year with the same core expect to get swept next season.

    :confused:

    I guess I'll just be stubborn.

    Both had a hand in it. Although Curry was way-over-his-head. JD created this whole mess with expecting AI to come off the bench which hurt both professionals. He also knew that this club had too much power over coaching directions and were beyond a listening to know one.

    In the end it was JD who paid AI not to play. A sure sign of an implosion that settled over this organization. Was there a lesson learned? Present placement between Rip and Gordon is a slight pause before Rip is traded.
    My best bet (providing health and financial arrangements): Rip for TMac.

    LK,

    What about John Mason for never fully embracing him or giving him a distinctive intro?

    Also, the casinos did not make him feel very welcome.

    Joe didn't need much convincing to use that contract for younger pieces.

    Exactly. That move freed up what about 17mil in cap space. I am fairly convinced that Cap Space was the #1 motivator and AI the player was #2.

    With that said the fair thing to do on Dumars part would have been to cut AI once it became obvious that it was not working.

    Barcelona agrre deal with DKV for Ricky Rubio

    Five years deal with nba option low buy out after second seasson.

    Barcelona pay 3,5 millions euros. :stirthepot: My spanish team,yeahhh¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

    Acuerdo por Ricky Rubio | SPORT | Baloncesto

    A CAMBIO DE UNOS 3'5 MILLONES


    Acuerdo por Ricky Rubio

    Barça y DKV Joventut habrían llegado ya a un acuerdo para el traspaso del base verdinegro al club azulgrana


    [​IMG] Ricky irá al Barça
    MÁS INFORMACIÓN
    Sport.es
    La noticia, adelantada este miércoles por 'La Vanguardia' y 'El Punt', asegura que Regal Barça y DKV Joventut podrían anunciar en breve el acuerdo, que pondría fin al culebrón del verano en el mundo del basket.

    Fuentes del club azulgrana sitúan el traspaso en torno a los 3'5 millones de euros, una cifra que, sin embargo, aún no habría confirmado el club badalonés. De esta manera, el traspaso de Ricky Rubio sería el más caro de la historia del basket europeo

    Tras su frustrada marcha a la NBA, la demanda al Joventut para rebajar su cláusula y el interés del Madrid en ficharlo, Ricky decidió que la mejor opción era quedarse en Catalunya y, ante el interés del Barça, eligió la oferta azulgrana.

    El único problema hasta ahora era el precio del traspaso, puesto que la cláusula del base catalán era casi prohibitiva para cualquier club. Al final, -tras las primeras ofertas de 2'3 y 3 millones de euros-, los 3'5 millones presentados ahora por el Barça habrían convencido al club verdinegro de manera definitiva para vender al jugador.

    Según 'La Vanguardia', la entrada en acción del presidente azulgrana Joan Laporta habría desencallado la operación y el acuerdo entre los clubes podría anunciarse en breve. El presidente de la 'Penya', Jordi Villacampa, mantendrá una reunión con su directiva para tomar una decisión y acelerar la operación. De esta manera, la próxima semana podría producirse una rueda de prensa en la que se explicarían todos los detalles del acuerdo.

    El entorno del jugador, por su parte, ya sabe que el acuerdo para el traspaso de Ricky está cerca de concretarse. El secretario técnico del Barcelona, Joan Creus, ya se ha puesto en contacto con la familia de Ricky para informarle de la nueva propuesta al Joventut y transmitir su confianza en que la operación pueda cerrarse en breve.

    Two years in barcelona in order to win euroleague, barcelona has loosed Andersen for houston rockets and ersan ilyasova to bucks, two starters but we have a great team adding rubio,pete mickeal and morris. I hope we win final four next year...
    Rubio in barcelona wil play al highest level out nba,playing starter with obligation to win titles. It will be good for him,to improve his level, next level is Dumards dealing rubio in 2011...

    Today spanish national team has finished unbeaten his tour,Marc Gasol better player,today 18 points,other games 26 points against lietuva.
    Pau is injured but Marc gasol has all future with him,is a good target when he ends contract in menphis, lakers has no cap to sign him,he wants go to a winner team like detroit,boston...who has cap to sign him.
