Oh Mickey, you're so fine you're so fine you blow my mind,
hey Mickey (huff huff), hey Mickey (huff huff)
Sure, he’s gotten plenty of ‘hype’ for his cover model look, but don’t hate on Ricky Rubio people … the boy’s actually got some game – even if it’s a bit different from the me-first, shoot-first point guard play we’ve become accustomed to in recent years roundball lovers.
Unlike many of today’s American-born floor leaders, Rubio actually makes his teammates better with his slick passing, much like the pass-first point guards of years ago (think Magic Johnson and John Stockton).
Just think, if you’re a T-Wolves player that is on the floor with Rubio, now you know that you could get a pass coming your way at any time – even if it doesn’t look like you’re open. Maybe I’m an ‘old-school’ guy, but actually passing the ball to get a better shot for your team is actually very appealing.
Rubio is currently averaging 10.6 points per game while dishing out an impressive 8.1 dimes per game and adding a surprising 4.7 rebounds per.
“We’re happy to have him now,” said Minnesota’s best player, all-star forward Kevin Love after a recent win. “Today’s just an example of how good he is—and how good he can be. Who’s to say? He’s still working on his jump shot. He’s still working on his game.”
Well, Eye On Sports fans, Rubio has plenty of game already – and it’s a scary thought to think how good he could be in another year or two of NBA hoops!
