With the Timberwolves' 5th selection in the 2009 NBA Draft, Ricky Rubio, not making an appearance at the Timberwolves' post-draft press conference, it is apparent that this will be an ongoing issue. Along with the statements that Ricky is receiving offers from teams in Spain and Turkey, there are reports that he is considering playing in Disneyland and Candyland as well. Both majestic franchises have made formidable offers and are offering Rubio the opportunity to share the limelight with household names. Imagine Ricky getting the chance to play with Mickey Mouse where he can show off his dribbling skills for little children or where kids can enjoy a Ricky Rubio game piece along the likes of Mr. Mint and Lord Licorice. There is even talk that if he signs a long term contract, that they would change the name of Candyland to Rickyland (Just imagine the nickname he would have if he decided to leave Candyland for the NBA).  As enticing as this all sounds, Ricky's father is making it well known that Ricky is too good for any team, and will remain playing in the family backyard where his legend can continue to grow.
