Video: Ricky Rubio does something ridiculous with a basketball

Feb 18, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

Pete Maravich. That’s really the only thing that comes to mind. Granted, Pistol was a much better shooter, but this was something downright incredible.


That’s just wow. That has a high wow factor. On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s a wow. It is the great grandaddy of wow. It goes to jam band concert and holds up a big flag with “WOW” on it. It is wowful.

Rubio may not be the Rookie of the Year, but the way he plays basketball is infectious, hilarious, and a joy to watch.

    Was it a behind the back bounce pass down the lane to Kevin Love for an assist?

    Fabulous. I wonder why the four letter doesn’t cover this more often? But perhaps with a nine turnover performance last night, there will now be room.

    Androids are for noobs

    Android to iPhone, sorry I miss my droid, this iPhone sucks

    That was it? WOWful?? It was a very nice play don’t get me wrong… but from the buildup I was expecting the best play in the history of the NBA if not all of basketball.

      Agreed. Very nice play. How many plays like that has Nash made. No need to go back to the Pistol.

      You went all superlative without the Clyde concentration on articulation. Like wow.

    Great behind the back bounce pass and all but when I read the ‘wow’, ‘WOW’ i was expecting to see something off the scoreboard pass or sumthin

    There is one thing droid users are good for:

    “Get an android”? Friggin’ moron. Android isn’t a phone, it’s a phone operating system. That’s like telling someone to “Get a Windows 7”.

    Android isn’t a phone, it’s an operating system. Telling someone to “get an Android” is like telling them to “get a Windows”.

  17. bertilfox - Feb 18, 2012 at 7:11 PM

    I’m on my windows 95 and I’m watching it now no problems All except the 120p hd is not so clear .

  19. 24thesho - Feb 19, 2012 at 6:04 AM

    Okay, so what’s the big deal? Nice pass but not enough to go gaga over.

    Instead of arguing about the Iphone and Android debate, I’ll comment on the video..

    Really, really nice play.
