Ricky Rubio 24 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (12/21/2018)

I was going into this description preparing to say something about how when Ricky Rubio has a good game the Jazz usually win, but just take a glance and his game log from this seasons seems to indicate that that is not the case. Dammit! I had a narrative all ready to go, and that…

Ricky Rubio 26 Points Full Highlights (12/9/2018)

Only 2 assists? I don’t want to live in a universe where the next Pistol Pete is so misused that he can only get 2 assists during a whole regulation-length NBA game. I want out. Send me to another universe, please. One with regular Rubio 20-assist games and also one with a formulation of Hot…

Attention Spanish citizenry: I am, right now, enjoying a glass of hot chocolate while snow gently caresses the wintry landscape outside my window. I am snuggled up in a very warm blanket (NOT a Snuggie, how white do you think I am?) with my little kitty purring on my lap. My Christmas tree is bedecked…

Ricky Rubio 27 Points Full Highlights (11/25/2018)

Now is the time to begin speculation that Donovan Mitchell isn’t even good. I don’t care that that hypothesis contradicts the eye test, the stats test, and every other test you can come up with. I don’t care that I was one of his staunchest ROY-candidacy supporters last year. What I care about is creating…

I hate to do it, but it’s time to call out Ricky Rubio. I’ve been talking about it for years, but now I’m saying it right to his face: that jumper is WAY too flat to ever be consistently effective in the NBA. Sure, there will be nights (like tonight) when he line-drives in a…

Ricky Rubio 22 Points/11 Assists Full Highlights (11/2/2018)

The thing with Ricky Rubio is that his flat-ass jumpers never feel sustainable. They go in often enough, I guess, but do you ever see him put one up and think “oh yeah that’s definitely going in”? No. So when he has a good stretch of gametime where he’s line-driving them into the hole, you…

Ricky Rubio 28 Points/12 Assists Full Highlights (10/27/2018)

How much of Ricky Rubio’s offensive output tonight, in the form of both points and assists, could be attributed to the fact that Anthony Davis was out for the Pelicans? You could probably take away most of his layups, and forget about a bunch of those lobs to Gobert. New Orleans, very obviously, doesn’t have…

Ricky Rubio Triple Double 26 Pts/11 Rebs/10 Asts Full Highlights (4/21/2018)

“Hey DownToBuck,” Ricky says as he walks towards me from a great distance. “Ricky,” I murmur to myself, quietly enough that he can’t hear it, and I know this must be a dream because there is no circumstance in my waking life where I would get to see Ricky Rubio in person. I try to…

The time is ripe for a new bromance in Utah. In the intervening months since Ricky Rubio left the desolate wastes of Minnesota, the viewing public has… screw it. Let’s cut to the chase: Ricky Rubio. Donovan Mitchell. Broing out in a bromantic manner. Is it happening right now? I can’t tell yet, but I’m…

Ricky Rubio flipped the digital page of his Kindle version of Don Quixote and found that his eyes were getting droopy. Despite his drowsiness, Ricky pressed on; he always strove to finish a chapter before setting the book down for the night. Readjusting his position atop a small mountain of assorted pillows and blankets, he…
