Ricky Rubio is available to the media… "What the hell?"
I defy you to watch this video and not fall in love with this guy.
DEFY YOU, I SAY!
Couple things I took away from this brief interview:
– Jump shot motion looks so much smoother and efficient. Now, that could completely go away when he gets into game action, but he talked about working on it and making progress. I believe him that he’s making progress because he seems incapable of lying.
– Beasley briefly caught chastising Ricky’s shoes? That was a quick shot and hilarious.
– Worries me a bit that the first three “talented” players Ricky mentioned from this off-season are Nick Young, Derek Fisher and Chauncey Billups. I’ll just blame it on being unfamiliar with the language. Maybe “Nick Young” translates to “Kevin Durant” in Spanish?
– He seems a lot more comfortable with talking to the media than we’ve seen and than what I expected from him.
Media Day is on Friday. CBA gets ratified within the next day. We’re 10 days away from preseason action.
Missed you so much, Wolves.
