Ricky Rubio is all smiles during this injury

Ricky Rubio has been at this a long time. He’s grown up in front of the press due to his professional career beginning when he was 14 years old. He’s as savvy as just about any NBA player when it comes to understanding what the fans and media all want and expect from the stars in this league.

Whether people believe his PER and shooting percentages make him a star or not, the outcry of support and sad feelings that deluged through the internet after the announcement of his ACL tear prove his stardom. He’s an important figure in the NBA at such a young age and he knows that the hopes of a fan base rest on his ligaments. Because of who he is and what he understands, I think the effort and updates on his injury he’s provided have been extra upbeat. Maybe I’m just reading into this too much or maybe he just understands his place in our NBA world that well. Regardless, he’s given us a lot of smiles in a time in which most of us have been sad about the news.

The first two pictures he tweeted were fantastic. He’s all smiles:

But now, Ricky has shot video of how he does his shopping with the knee injury. He’s taken this “cheer us up” thing to a whole new level.

Thank you, Ricky.

  1. Ricky didn´t really grow up in front of the press. His family and his first team  didn´t wanted him to talk to the press until he were 18 but when he was call to the Olympics they allowed him to do interviews.

  2. Looks like he’s at the Children’s hospital.
     
    With Rubio out, how about we go for barea’s old buddy JET?

  3. Now would he please just take this one step further and set up weekly meet & greets where he can give us hugs! I’d drive all the way from North Dakota each week for that!! It would be a lot better than my drive last friday listening to rubio getting hurt, the lakers winning and then going to that dreadful Hornets game.

  4. Hahaha, that shopping video is awesome.  Just another show of how Ricky’s awesomeness isn’t just limited to the basketball floor and how it extends to every area of life.  Imagine Lebron or Kobe posting a video like this if they got hurt!  They never would, because their awesomeness is inferior to Ricky’s awesomeness.
