6/17 Daily Rundown: Ricky Rubio Officially On Wolves

June 17th 2011 05:39
The Daily Rundown is a new segment I will do that covers the days biggest stories. I will also comment for a paragraph or so on the subject.

1. Vancouver Riots

100 people have been arrested, and 150 people were injured as a result of the disgraceful riots in Vancouver that stemmed from the Canucks' loss in Game 7. Canucks fans live by their team, and they have been waiting for a Stanley Cup final for so long. The Canucks have been great in the regular season for the past few years, yet they can never win a championship. They finally made it to the Finals, but they lost in a poorly played Game 7.

There's no excuse for rioting over a game. You can be angry, you can cry, but you can't start destroying property just because your team lost. This whole fiasco is a disgrace to the city of Vancouver, to the fans of the Vancouver Canucks, hockey fans in general, and it also hurts the reputation of sports fans.

2. Braves Beat Mets

The title doesn't sound to interesting, but the Braves beat the Mets in the tenth inning thanks to a walkoff balk. Yeah, D.J. Carrasco balked- it was very easy to call- with Jason Heyward at the plate. Diory Hernandez crossed home plate, and the Braves won 9-8. Jordan Schafer went 5-6 with three runs scored, and Chipper went 3-4 with 5 RBIs and a homer. Jose Reyes went 3-6 with a stolen base and triple.

3. Ricky Rubio Officially With T'Wolves

Rubio is David Kahn's last hope of vindication from the last couple of drafts. He's finally leaving Barcelona to play for the NBA team that drafted him. He was on the basketball radar after having be electrifying in the Olympics. He's a smart player who knows the game, but his offense has been declining each year in Spain. One overlooked factor is that Rubio is a creative point guard, and Barcelona's coach does not let him use that creativity. However, Kurt Rambis and the Timberwolves will allow him to let his creativity flow.

4. Wild Hire Coach

The Minnesota Wild have hired Mike Yeo to be their new coach, and he is set to replace the previously fired Todd Richards. Yeo was one of the best AHL coaches, and he also did a nice job for the Pens as an assistant coach. I think he's a nice upgrade over Richards, but I still don't think the Wild are going to be in the playoffs.

5. Flacco As Good As Rivers?

KC Joyner is a very good sportswriter, but I am going to disagree with his post that Joe Flacco is just as good as Philip Rivers. Joyner makes most of his decisions using advanced statistics, and his main reason for saying this is that Flacco organized a great deep attack with mainly possession receivers.

Flacco is a very good quarterback, but Rivers is one of the top five best in the game. Flacco has a better arm than Rivers, but Rivers has way better accuracy and poise. I view Rivers as a top five quarterback and Flacco a top ten QB. I just think that Rivers' amazing accuracy puts him over Flacco.
Finally w/Wolves
