OK so maybe it’s not an NBA game (thank you lockout) but Minnesota Timberwolves’ Ricky Rubio finally got to play with his fellow NBA players at Drew Gooden’s charity game and did he deliver.
Rubio showed off the passing ability and dribbling skills which made him a coveted draft pick out of Spain.
From behind-the-back passes, dribbling the ball between a defender’s legs to tossing a nicely timed alley-oop pass, Minnesota fans will probably be drooling over this footage (via hoopmixtape.com) of Rubio in action.
Also check out Demar Derozen showing off some nice dunks, and Gooden breaking Anderson Varejao’s ankle. Hopefully Anderson had ankle insurance.
