We are obviously very sad for all the players who have suffered serious injuries, but the fate of Ricky Rubio is even more sad. Firstly because it is not the first time that he has injured his knee so seriously, but also because he was having his best career season in a surprise formation.

“When my son starts school, the NBA won’t be worth it. We will have to go back. I don’t want to upset him when he’s six, at an age when you start making friends. I discussed it with my wife and we were very clear. There will be a time when basketball will no longer be the priority. »
