In case you have been wondering what’s cracking with T-Wolves draft pick Ricky Rubio, here is a little video of a recent game he played in the Euroleague. Rubio’s FC Barcelona squad took on Montepaschi and Rubio managed to do a little bit of work, dropping 6 points and 5 assists in 23 minutes. In 5 Euroleague games this season Rubio is averaging 6.4 points, 5.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds. In 10 Spanish league games Little Ricky’s numbers are slightly lower with 5.2 points, 4.9 assist and 2.1 rebounds.
We knew Ricky was scary to come over to the league and now we see why. The dude is decent and he may need some more time to develop, but he might be a tad overrated. T-Wolves fans won’t find out the answer any time soon. Which might not be a bad thing.
Wonder how many GM’s still think he was a better option than Brandon Jennings? and even though it was a better business move, the T-Wolves could have at least had some American pride and drafted Jonny Flynn ahead of him.
