Ricky Rubio's assists against the Atlanta Hawks

Let’s break them down, kids. It’s pretty incredible how Ricky sets guys up with the simplest of passes. Derrick Williams has been pretty great about setting his feet over the past 15-20 games and really looks like a good spot-up shooter out there with Rubio. Rubio mentioned after the game that he’s looking to make […]

Ricky Rubio will play tonight for the Minnesota Timberwolves

Ricky’s back: The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that guard Ricky Rubio will be in uniform and is expected to make his season debut tonight when the Wolves take on the Dallas Mavericks at Target Center at 7:00 p.m. “I’m excited to get back on the floor with my teammates and play in front of the […]

Ricky Rubio: Backyard Wrestler

This is actually just standard ACL tear rehab. Once you’re done strengthening with weights and before you can get on the court for basketball activities, they have you do backyard wrestling. That’s just good doctoring.

What a glorious sight… Ricky is running again

Mark Remme of tweeted this afternoon a photo of Ricky Rubio running during the Wolves’ practice. With Ricky running now and eventually starting up some light basketball drills, we should be able to find out just how realistic our dreams of a late December return as a Christmas present to us really is.

Ricky Rubio back in December?

We’re all wondering when Ricky Rubio will be back for the Timberwolves to throw inspirational bounce passes back into our collective hearts. It’s pretty improbable that he’d be back for the start of the regular season, considering he hasn’t started doing many exercises with heavy impact (i.e. – running and basketball related workouts/drills). That would […]

Ricky Rubio's road to recovery video

When I saw there was a Ricky Rubio rehab video, I expected it to be something like this. Alas, it is not so. Wolves put together a nice look at the work Ricky has been doing to get his knee back to strength after the tear against the Lakers. It’s one thing to see the […]

Ricky Rubio never stops working or making me smile

Ricky Rubio is down but definitely not out. Here he is working on his… well… let’s say set shot. Andre Miller would be proud. (H/T – @RussoDefender) By the way, I love so much that Pump Up The Jam is what they’re listening to. 

Puppy Breath and… Nutmeg?

In last night’s Rising Stars game, Ricky Rubio put on a passing display that had the internets a blazing. He also went 5-hole against DeMarcus Cousins before finding Blake Griffin on the alley-oop. Big ups to Derrick Williams for not trying to Greg Monroe the end of this play. There was also this pass to […]

Overflowing with puppy breath and cinnamon

This happened in the win over the Rockets and it definitely deserves its own post. Can’t stop watching. I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun watching a guy on this team.

The record books are tainted

I was going through the Synergy breakdown of Friday night’s game and I found something very troubling. I couldn’t find a sweet little behind the back bounce pass from Ricky Rubio to Kevin Love near the end of the third quarter that sent a quiver up my spine. I remember freaking out about it in the […]
