I concur with his theory on Rubio’s agent being the mastermind behind the rumors. Think about it: as a fan, who do you usually think of when it comes to trade rumors? I think of the front office, not the agent.
So, if Bohl’s theory is correct, this revelation would have a ripple effect throughout the Twin Cities. Basketball operations, sales of Rubio merchandises, and ticket sales could be affected, sure, but so will the Timberwolves’ international following, Rubio’s public image, and his overall likability.
Call me biased, but I love Ricky Rubio and would shocked if he demanded a trade elsewhere.
