Hey, have you seen Ricky Rubio lately? He looks a lot different than he does in the picture above, which was taken in March of 2017 and in which Rubio still looks a lot like the precocious teen he was when he entered the NBA in 2011. Say goodbye to that Ricky Rubio, because our man is hard now:
Are you ready for the point guard shuffle? The first domino is a trade sending Ricky Rubio to Utah in exchange for a lottery-protected first-round pick.
It’s hard to believe that Ricky Rubio is still just 26 years old. Maybe that’s because, by virtue of the fact that he and Nikola Pekovic are the only two players on the Timberwolves’ roster that were there in 2011, he qualifies as something of a grizzled veteran on this team. Insomuch as NBA teams have talismans, he’s…
It’s still way too early to be disappointed in the Minnesota Timberwolves, who fell to 3-7 after losing to the Charlotte Hornets last night.

We've all seen Ricky Rubio make plenty of amazing passes, but here's another one that is worthy of our attention and praise.
This goes down as just two points, Ricky Rubio cutting to the basket and metaphorically pantsing Patty Mills and Aron Baynes in quick succession. But it's a pretty good microcosm of what he's capable of on his best nights: "making art," as the announcer says. Hang this opus in the MIA, because last night Rubio had the…
Man, why can't we live in a world where Ricky Rubio magically appears whenever we're having a bad day and tells us to turn our frowns upside down? Spilled coffee on your new shirt? Poof! There's Ricky reminding you that sea otters hold hands when they sleep next to each other so they don't float away. Totally blew…
BCS National Championship Game tickets are great, but a huge blanket with Ricky Rubio's face on it, among other Ricky Rubio-themed items? That's also an excellent Christmas gift. Rubio liked it so much he tweeted it out. What a lucky mom.

Slam's Farmer Jones has a lovely story on what it took for Kevin Love to earn this honor—a year-old promise that if he could average 20 and 15, the cover was his.
