The Bigger Cock? Rubio or Cuban?

Some days I wake up and say who is a more cocky f*** Mark Cuban or Ricky Rubio? Ricky Rubio a player whose skills have declined over in Spain is making more waves. His “senior” peeps are saying he won’t play in Minnesota! He will only play on the East Coast preferably in Boston. Last I checked his name wasn’t John Elway or Eli Manning and this isn’t the NFL!

Ricky Rubio is sticking out his chest at the worst possible moment.Celticstown makes some great points.  Here is a direct quote:

And Rubio’s trade stock isn’t exactly booming. After what was widely considered a letdown FIBA World Championships (by “widely considered a letdown,” I mean Rubio shot 28% from the field while starting for the underachieving Spain team), Rubio’s play has regressed even in his own league. He’s now shooting 32% from the field, or, for those of you who want a reference point, far worse than Allen Iverson ever dreamed of. For another reference point, Rubio shot more than 40% last season. He’s supposed to improve with age, but Rubio’s development is in reverse

I love Allen Iverson. I go on the record as being one of those NBA fans who enjoyed the AI – Kobe Finals Matchup of 2001. However, you are in some serious trouble Ricky when your shooting percentage is compared to AI and you have not even played a minute in the NBA. If you put Ricky Rubio and Allen Iverson in a one on one game my money is on AI to school his cocky ass! Last I checked playing in the Association is a privilege not a right. The T’Wolves own his playing rights and he has got to suck it up and play in Minnesota. Otherwise keep your candy ass over there in Europe. Lets be frank. Some European players just don’t have the “toughness” to make it in the NBA.

Now onto my other fav person- Mark “the Cock” Cuban. I say this in jest because in all honesty I respect the man. He fulfills the verb of cock with two definitions- 1) . To strut; to swagger; to look big, pert, or menacing and 2) To draw back the hammer of a firearm, and set it for firing. He also fulfills the Urban Dictionary definition of a cock block (as the above picture suggests):

Anyone or anything that gets in the way of you getting some. Many cock-blocks can’t get any themselves so they try to stop somebody else. If they ain’t scorin’ nobody’s scorin’. No scene is too embarassing in their undying quest to prevent your action.

 I respect his desire to win just like his mentor the late great  George Steinbrenner. The difference? There is no salary cap in baseball. So Mark’s great move in firing and/or trading the 7’2 Alexis Anjica to Toronto to free up cap room for Peja Stojakovic had raised red flags in the league. Other franchise owners are now saying Toronto waived Peja in order to get around the salary cap and enable Cuban to obtain him for peanuts. He pulled it off. As I was typing this piece the NBA anounced they approved this shady dealing.

Gotta give Marky Mark credit. He knows the rules of the cap and found away to distort it. Maybe just maybe he is Steinbrenner 2.0 – Of course to truly establish that distinction he has got to bring home that Larry O’brien trophy:

As for who the bigger cock is? Ya’all tell me…

  2. suns – the irony – i truly think it’s Rubio…. Rubio has accomplished nothing. Cuban has been successful in the dot.com market and in bball…he at least has credence

    • Yo Kobe,

      Cousin Paulie disagrees with both your choices. It is David Kahn’s fault the General Manager of the Pathetic T-Wolves who made the pick after Rubio’s reps told him not too. To show how unsure he was he then drafted Jonny Flynn with the very next pick. Minnesota only has to look in the mirror to know who screwed that deal up.

      Cuban is Cuban; he is always doing something bizarre but BOTTOM LINE is he always has good teams. So Mavericks fans will deal with his Nutso side as long as he keeps winning
