Rubio dismissed the notion that he did not want to play for Minnesota, one of the league’s smaller markets. "Everyone is talking like Minneapolis is not a good city to live, but I think that it’s a great city to live," he said. "O.K., the weather is not so good. But there’s a lot of things to do there, a lot of sports to watch and centers to go. I think it’s a great city."

Tuesday, August 10, 2010 Hizo falta prórroga para derrotar a Eslovenia. It took extra time to defeat Slovenia. Un rival mucho más difícil que en el anterior encuentro, que puso en problemas a los de Scariolo, que se llevan un valioso test fuera de casa y con final apretado A rival much more difficult than in the previous meeting, which began in the Scariolo problems, which are a valuable test away from home and with tight end Ricky Rubio & Jaka Lakovic Ricky Rubio & Jaka Lakovic Ljubljana, 10 Ago. 2010 (Europa Press).- La selección española de baloncesto sigue con su gran andadura en su preparación para el Mundial de Turquía, que comienza el próximo 28 de agosto, al vencer a Eslovenia (72-79) en un partido muy disputado que se tuvo que resolver en la prórroga y que fue el primero lejos de territorio nacional. Ljubljana, 10 Aug. 2010 (Europa Press) .- The Spanish national basketball continues his great journey in preparing for the World Cup in Turkey, which begins next August 28, beating Slovenia (1972-1979) in a tough game that had to be solved in the extension and that was the first away from national territory. España no jugó al mismo nivel que en el encuentro que disputó ante el mismo rival el pasado fin de semana, y fue casi todo el tiempo por debajo en el marcador. Spain did not play at the same level as in the match he played against the same opponents last weekend, and was almost all the time behind on the scoreboard. Aún así la lectura positiva que se puede sacar del encuentro fue su capacidad para recuperarse de situaciones adversas en un campo rival, ya que fue el primer enfrentamiento que el equipo de Sergio Scariolo jugó fuera de territorio español. Still positive reading can be taken out of the meeting was its ability to recover from adverse situations in a rival camp, as it was the first match that the team of Sergio Scariolo played outside Spanish territory. Eslovenia comenzó mucho mejor que España, que no estuvo nada fina en defensa en el primer periodo, algo que los eslovenos aprovecharon desde los primeros compases del encuentro. Slovenia started much better than Spain, which was not so thin on defense in the first period, the Slovenes took something from the first notes of the meeting. Los campeones del Mundo acusaron el juego tan trabado y tan duro que impuso su rival, algo que no beneficiaba nada al combinado de Scariolo. The champions of the World accused the game as hard as locked and forced his rival, something that did not benefit anything Scariolo combined.

The Worst Moves In The Offseason (Britt Robson)

• Timberwolves sign 2008 second-round pick Nikola Pekovic to a four-year, $13 million deal and re-sign Darko Milicic to a four-year, $20 million deal A handful of prominent basketball pundits have developed a mob mentality over the supposed incompetence of Timberwolves president David Kahn. But a guy who flips Randy Foye and Mike Miller for Ricky Rubio and obtains Michael Beasley for a pair of second-round picks is probably more than just an arrogant buffoon. That said, Kahn was bidding against himself when he gave Milicic $20 million over four years (although the last year isn't guaranteed), and should be wary of the ripple effect of also signing Pekovic, another big man who has played well in Europe. Signing Milicic and Pekovic is a concession that time and money were wasted on one of last year's free-agent signings, center-forward Ryan Hollins. But more significantly, it creates a frontcourt logjam that risks taking minutes from Kevin Love and Beasley. The Wolves need to see what they have in Beasley. But the top priority should be making Love -- their best player by a country mile and then a city block -- feel wanted. Love, who came off the bench during the second half of last season, already stated he wants to start. Alienating Love for the sake of more time for Milicic and Pekovic would make Kahn's enemies look good -- especially after Love leaves town.
