Ricky Rubio of the Minnesota Timberwolves took the NBA by storm before falling to a torn ACL. That injury is merely a setback for Rubio, who is still doing awesome stuff on a basketball court. This backwards shot, while sitting down, is extremely cool.
Rubio is a wizard with the basketball, but that is normally his passing. I was not aware his shooting skills were so good. It takes a lot of talent to be able to make shots like that and even more practice time. I am not sure how many shots that Rubio took in order to make that, but it is still impressive.
Rubio should make his return about midseason this coming year. The Timberwolves fell off once he went down and hopefully he is able to return at close to full strength. Watching Rubio on the court is a real treat and fans everywhere love his game. Plus, he has boy band looks so girls watch a lot of his games. Basically, the league wins in every scenario. Guys love Rubio’s game and girls just love Rubio. He’s a double threat like that.
If Rubio ever gets a chance to play in a game of HORSE, I would take him over anyone. If you can make backwards shots while sitting down, you are a champ. Hopefully Rubio can return to real basketball action sooner rather than later.
