Out of many great Rubio plays this ones the greatest. His instincts and BBIQ are off the charts.

Finally its put his name into writing, was wondering what was taking time. No brainer to opt in to that overpaid contract.



Gonna miss JJ tho.

Pretty impressive, Rosas essentially turned Gorgui Dieng into Ricky Rubio, Leandro Bolmaro and Jaden McDaniels.

To be fair, that was Gorgui and the #17.

I have Johnson and Rubio as about equal trade value, and the return from OKC’s trade of James Johnson seems to confirm that. It isn’t that Rubio isn’t a much better player than Johnson. It’s that Rubio has a second year at $17.8 mil, in a season where many teams want to conserve cap space for a great free agent class.

Good point. But I think swapping Gorgui for Johnson was an understated move. I don't think Dieng would've fetched what Johnson did this week.

You are probably right. I think Johnson was a better fit here, with a greater ability to run and he was said to be a good voice in the clubhouse. But I think Gorgui gets under-rated. When he played for us, the defense was suddenly great, he was shooting 38.3% from three, and averaging 5.6 RB and 7.1 PPG .. in only 16.9 mpg! Double those numbers and you have a very solid starting NBA center. The problem for Gorgui was that he was exclusively a center, so he was never going to get enough minutes with Towns here. I still think he is a better player than JJ, but since he is a center in a league that is so full of them, you are probably right. OKC might not have traded Rubio for Gorgui, because they might have found it too difficult to trade him to a team that needed a center.

JJ is a nice player, but nowhere near the level of Rubio. The only reason we got Ricky is the Thunder wanted to cut salary one year sooner.

I don’t think that trade had anything to do with the quality of player Johnson is.
