Bill Duffy, former Gopher and current NBA agent, quoted in Sid Hartman's column:
Headline for this Column was not "Bill Duffy is Sour Grapes Because He Couldn't Land Rubio". Because that would have been prejudicial. "NBA Insider Says Rubio Overhyped" is completely kosher, though. Nice work, Star Tribune.
Not to say that Rubio isn't overhyped. He might be. But maybe it shouldn't come from an agent's mouth, and maybe he shouldn't be called an NBA insider in the headline, like he's some disinterested GM on the West Coast or something. As one Star Trib commenter pointed out--Sid Hartman has the gall to consider this a compliment: "Duffy is also a great judge of talent, according to former Timberwolves chief Kevin McHale."
