Good. He needs his fire, and things like this can often provide the extra juice.

Jim Meehan tweet with Rui yesterday:


After nearly 30 minutes with the Japanese media, I got two questions in with Rui. First one, in jest: "How many times did you get asked about the NBA today?" Rui: "Uhm, I don't know, media is asking every time. Maybe 10 or 15."

Last thing I want on Rui's mind is NBA hype.

I'm sure he's locked in and focused on the here and now. Don't want him worried about injury, or playing poorly, etc.
