Re: Rubio talks. They're negotiations. Both sides sticking to their guns right now. Deadlines spur action. This deadline isn't until Oct. 31

Darren Wolfson

Re: Bledsoe -- why would the Suns do that? They wouldn't. RT @JuanfranFlo: @Darren Wolfson What's the plan then? Trade Rubio for him?

Chris Sheridan

Every #NBA team has a player on the spot this season, ranging from Rajon Rondo to Ricky Rubio sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/16/ber…

Rob Mahoney

Also, I will never understand the intersection of NBA fans who love Rondo and belittle Rubio.

Ricky Rubio quiere más de 40 millones por 4 años aunque le gustaría ser "leal" a Minnesota Timberwolves bit.ly/1qaswYZ

Ricky Rubio not close to sign an extension with T'Wolves sportando.com/en/usa/nba/134…

Darren Wolfson

Rubio on contract talks to Yahoo: "I'm loyal." Curious his definition of loyal. It's not 4-years, $40M+, which is plenty, IMO. #twolves

RT, translated @Ricky Rubio: 24hrs later and my head is spinning ... it could not be. Difficult times help us appreciate all we've achieved

Lang Greene

Rubio is like those old NYC point guards. Great vision. Awesome playmaker. Flashy. Broke jumper.

John Schuhmann

France coach Vincent Collet said part of game plan was to leave Rubio alone on the perimeter & also pressure Gasols at the high post (1/2).

Mark Woods

France coach Vincent Collet admits they left Ricky Rubio open to move a defender to help inside. And it worked.

John Schuhmann

Marc Gasol: 1-for-7. Serge Ibaka: 1-for-7. Ricky Rubio: 1-for-7.

Pau Gasol had 17 pts, 8 rebs, 3 blks, 7-12 FGs in loss to France. Marc Gasol, Rubio and Ibaka combined to shoot 3 for 21 from field.

John Schuhmann

Huge 3 from Huertel. Rubio misses a J. Fairwell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies...

Yannis Koutroupis

Incidental elbow by Heurtel, Rubio needs to play on there. What a rim protector Gobert has been. Spain down 3 w/3 to play

Amin Elhassan

Huuuuuuuuuuuuuge play by Rubio!

Big surprise: A shoving match at a France-Spain game. Florent Pietrus saying not very nice things to Rubio. In Spanish!

Jinno Rufino

looked like Rubio was going to hole to me.

Good luck tonight to my Spanish bro's @Rudy Fernandez @23Llull @Sergio Rodriguez @Ricky Rubio and theee big homie Felipeee tonight!
