My guess is Rubio will be in the starting lineup for Friday, and Ridinour will be shuffled over to the 2 guard. He will be undersized there, but he is a decent enough shooter and is a solid defender so he should be able to succeed there. Darko is going to start for the time being, and I am fine with it. After all, he only plays about 15-20 minutes a game, and its not about who starts, its who finishes.
So the lineup will look like this, at least until Beasly comes back:
PG: RubioSG: RidinourSF: WesPF: That Love GuyC: Darko
Michael Wilbon of ESPN praising Ricky Rubio, and there is another pretty good basketball player that knew Rubio was going to be good from the start.
Darko needs to only play backup minutes. If he goes 0-1, 3 blocks in like 10 minutes i'm fine with that but he shouldn't be in the starting lineup anymore. Doesn't work well with Ricky. Need a more athletic C like Randolph in there.
Rubio ties it up with a three and Love to win with the buzzer beater.
WOLVES WIN ! WOLVES WIN !!!!!!!!!!
Have to agree with that, old Wolves would have rolled over and died when they were down by 12. I like how Ricky Rubio didn't panic when he didn't play to his best for the first three quarters.
