Kobe: Wolves' draft choice Rubio ready for NBA

BARCELONA, Spain – Ricky Rubio has accomplished a lot in his young
career, he just hasn’t shown he’s ready to make the jump to the NBA.

The 19-year-old point guard has already played in an Olympic gold-medal
game, won a European Championship with Spain and led his club team to
the Euroleague title.

But the Spaniard went scoreless in an exhibition game between his FC
Barcelona team and the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, falling flat in
his first big opportunity to silence critics after his disappointing
performance in the world championships.
