Ricky Rubio 21 Points Full Highlights (1/10/2018)

Ricky Rubio’s assist numbers are way down from last year, a result of him moving from the Timberwolves’ “spam pick-and-pops with KAT” system to the Jazz’s “take the ball out of Ricky’s hands so some flashy rookie can play with it” system. It’s a shame, but what can you do? His hot shooting percentages to…

Ricky Rubio 16 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (12/30/2017)

Last night was a battle of Spanish point guards as the young (Ricky “Sexy Eyes” Rubio) faced off against the old (Jose Calderon). But who is the better player? Through the use of facts, double- and triple-checked for factuality, I will determine which player is officially better and present my FINAL OFFICIAL VERDICT and the…

Ricky Rubio 22 Points Full Highlights (12/15/2017)

Why does Ricky Rubio suck now? I might catch some flak for using that term, but it’s true. The Jazz are withstanding it well, but there’s no denying it. The eye-test says he sucks, the boxscore says he sucks, and the advanced stats say he sucks. Especially compared to what we know he’s capable of….

Ricky Rubio 20 Points Full Highlights (10/30/2017)

Ricky Rubio scored 20 points on nothing but jumpers tonight. No lameups, no free throws, no floaters, no dunks. Not too many assists either. He showed a lot of confidence in his midrange shot near the end of his time in Minnesota, but never anything like this. The Mavericks dared him to shoot, and he…

Ricky Rubio 21 Points Full Highlights (10/28/2017)

At what point during the summer did Ricky Rubio stop looking like a sexy Spanish adonis and start looking like one of the dudes on the covers of your dad’s 70’s vinyl collection? Because he didn’t look like this at the end of last season. I didn’t watch Eurobasket or BallEuro or HoopEuropaEvolved or whatever…

Ricky Rubio 19 Points/10 Assists Full Highlights (10/20/2017)

The reception Ricky Rubio got from the fans in his return to Minnesota was about what I expected. Polite, appreciative, but not roaring or anything. It wasn’t like the KG return, that’s for sure, and that’s how it should be. For those that weren’t paying attention, I have compiled a list of accomplishments the Timberwolves…

Ricky Rubio 26 Points/12 Assists Full Highlights (4/7/2017)

Is there anyone on earth who cares that Ricky Rubio has now made 50 consecutive technical free-throws? I’m a pretty big stat-fiend, but I find that that particular stat doesn’t interest me at all. Come back to me when he challenges Micheal Williams’s consecutive free-throws record. That’s a lame one too, but at least it’s…

Ricky Rubio 19 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/6/2017)

New strategy for defending Ricky Rubio: since he is now a legitimate threat to hit midrange jumpers when you go under on his screens, why not go OVER the screen and make him drive it to the rack? He’s never been able to finish through any kind of contact. In fact, he’s never been able…

Ricky Rubio 11 Points/16 Assists Full Highlights (4/3/2017)

This is not very many field goals for Ricky Rubio. Only two, which means I could have left them out and the quality of this video would remain about the same. A layup, a midrange jumper (the kind he’s been canning regularly for a few weeks now), a bunch of lame free-throws, and that’s it…
