T-Wolves assistant GM Tony Ronzone, and long-time Team USA staff member, tells the Star Tribune that Love and Rubio shared a bond during the World Championship tourney: “Have you been able to see Ricky Rubio play much? ‘I saw him play twice in Madrid, including a (exhibition) game we played against Spain. (Defensive) pressure does not affect him. He runs the team unselfishly. He’s very humble and has a great passion for the game. Kevin got a chance to spend some time with Ricky after the game. It was great to see two future teammates together like that. Ricky knew him very well.’”
