Well now, BallinEurope only waited for this for years – even though BiE never thought he’d see it from Minnesota. Last night saw Ricky Rubio’s debut for the Timberwolves in a preseason matchup versus the Milwaukee Bucks and, awesomely enough, contributed a couple of YouTube-worthy moments.
(Is it enough to “bring folks back to Target Center” to witness the perhaps not-quite-so-woeful ‘Wolves in 2011-12? We’ll see.)
In any case, below runs Rubio’s top play: a magic feed for the alley-oop jam by fellow NBA rookie Derrick Williams s the game became a thorough rout in the fourth quarter.
And this second clip is a nice compilation of Ricky’s achievements on this “momento historico” put together by the most excellent Dejan Body. Speaking of excellent, Rubio went for six points, seven assists, six rebounds and two steals; yes, it’s the preseason and the competition ain’t the grandest, but still, big things may, in fact, be coming.
