I don't know what Adelman's beef is, he's been in the league forever and has probably ordered some of his players to rough up a few opponents in his time. Rubio said it best: "It is what it is". Look at vets like Manu and TP, they're constantly being mugged when they drive to the basket and in the majority of cases, particularly in Tony's case, hit the deck. They get up, brush themselves off and resume play and move on. Rubio may be a rookie by NBA standards but he's been around the block after years playing Euro ball. Adelman -- deal with it.
