Ricky Rubio did not show up for the media day of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
A decidedly different absence than James Harden’s from the Philadelphia 76ers’ homecoming. Rubio’s forfeit is agreed with the franchise and expected by all, after the vicissitudes of this summer. The Spanish point guard forfeited the World Cup with La Roja, putting his career on hold without detailing the reasons for this choice. Behind this decision appear to be. motivations of a psychological nature that are driving Rubio on a path away from the hardwood floor.
The Cavs issued an official statement on the matter, explaining that for the time being it is best for Rubio to stay away from the team, which is constantly in contact with the franchise from which he receives constant support.
