It doesn’t seem like Ricky Rubio understands the stigma of liking Justin Bieber here in the states. In all seriousness, this is just a simple rookie hazing that takes place every season in mostly every sport.
However, I can’t imagine a guy like Patrick Willis wearing an NSYNC bag during his rookie season, but it is a tradition that has stayed true in baseball and basketball. After this season, Rubio will no longer have to worry about stunts like this, but for the time being….enjoy your moment in the sun, rook!
