Only one way to sum this up: Welcome back, Ricky. You’ve been missed.

Honestly, this makes me a little mad. I’m mad that there isn’t more brilliance like this in the NBA. I want more, and I can’t have it.
cant wait till he starts again
How did he look last night?
we might not see a better one all year, double between the legs
he coulda just made a regular pass like every other nba player would. love this guy
8 points and 9 assists in under 20 mins. nothing more needs to be said
i had to watch it 3times just to check if my first view was right… damn, that was DOUBLE between legs.
I saw the stat line, but I mean his speed, etc etc.
Thank God he’s back. Let the Love/Rubio 1-2 punch begin up here in Minny!
back in the day white chocolate and all those guys had it
It wasn’t double between the legs.
brilliance as its finest
white chocolate was the last one… but ricks a lil more precise
forgot 2 steals lol
he looed a bit timid, but his speed was good
it’s because the point guard position is evolving into high powered high flyers….I’d like more players like Rubio too but at least there are your Derrick Roses and Russell Westbrooks
Love for Boozer straight up. We’ll even throw in a 2nd rounder
ehm no it wasnt
Euhm yes it was.
Does anyone else have a better court vision than Ricky in the NBA right now?
Watch it again dummy, it clearly went past Elton Brands legs not underneath them.
Welcome back, La Pistola… right between the legs like he did Dirk and Cousins last year. Rubio makes League Pass worth it.
Check video at 0:15. I thought it was double between the legs too.
thanks, good to hear, kid has a future.
Why in the hell would Minny want Boozer and his contract?
Ricky looked quick and confident, there was a little rust in a couple oops that he threw short, and his 3 pointers did not have a chance, but other than that he looked comfortable. Minny played with a three guard lineup (Rubio, Ridnour, Shved) which was surprisingly effective for some minutes.
They’re 12-9 in the West with an injury stricken team. Imagine them when everyone is healthy. This is a playoff team. Love and Pekovic is a dynamic front court duo. Kirilenko, Budinger, Rubio as your backcourt. And then you have Barea, Shved, Ridnour, and Howard coming off the bench. Jeez.
Why would you have Budinger(coming off an injury) as your starting SG? And have 3 ‘smaller guards’ off the bench? Who are those 3 going to guard? I would start Ridnour and Rubio for balance or Rubio and Shved (can guard bigger players) and have Barea, Shved/Ridnour, Howard, Williams/Cunningham and Stiemsma off the bench. Anyway Rubio sparks Williams game. Like last year Adelman will find minutes for them te be on the court at the same time. Rubio sparks the 2nd squad
cause he’s awesome at pick n rolls
hes the Euro Rondo
isnt Brandon Roy on this team?
Amen, thank you
I mean how can u deny it when you see it?
his right leg was kicked in front lol. he did it between the legs. but hey i guess thats the brilliance of rubio. defenders and haters can’t full grasp the power of rubio lol
because of the 2nd rounder!!!!
no way ha
Brandon Roy’s done.
I said IF they were all healthy and no injuries had occured. Either way they have a lot of depth whatever starting line up you choose. Maybe too much depth at the point guard position.
