a change of pace - some basketball news




Not something we usually cover, but FC Barcelona Basquet (known as Regal FC Barcelona) have signed possibly the biggest rising star of Spanish basketball, 19-year-old Ricky Rubio. (You may remember him from this adorable photoshoot with Bojan Krkic. Or how scarily good he was at the Olympics at such an young age.) This transfer saga has been rumbling on in the Spanish press for months, so I thought it was worth a post.

[Regal FCB won their league last season, with their big star being one Juan Carlos Navarro, who you may also remember from the Olympics.]
