Found December 19, 2012 on Crossover Chronicles:
It took a while for Minnesota's Ricky Rubio to make his way back on the court after dealing with a knee injury but he sure showed he still has that flare for the game. In his first game back versus Dallas, Rubio came off the bench and notched 8 points and 9 assists in 18 minutes of action and from the looks of things, one of those assists was quite spectacular. During the second quarter, Rubio pulled off a double-through the legs pass through his legs and a Mav to teammate Greg Stiemsma for the bucket. Sick! [follow]

Ricky Rubio’s Filthy Between the Legs Pass

Ricky Rubio Shows He Can Still Pass Against the Orlando Magic (Video)

Ricky Rubio Out Tonight Against Heat, And Heat Losing

Ricky Rubio feels the Lakers are mistreating Pau Gasol

Add Ricky Rubio to the growing list of people who feel like the Los Angeles Lakers are not getting the most out of Pau Gasol this season.

Ricky Rubio Doesn’t Like How Lakers Are Treating Pau Gasol

“Pau Gasol has given the Lakers a lot and I don’t feel he’s getting enough in return, especially as far as confidence,” Rubio said in a conference call earlier today. “But he’s a pro. If he goes to another team, I think he would make a contender out of that team. Wherever he goes, he’s going to be fighting for the title.” via HoopsHype
