Video: Ricky Rubio dribbles between defender’s legs, finishes with lob to Blake Griffin for the dunk

Feb 24, 2012, 10:36 PM EDT

The Rising Stars Challenge on All-Star weekend’s opening night was largely an abomination, with players going half-speed, playing zero defense, and only occasionally producing the kind of highlights one would hope to see in an exhibition game.

But there were a few noteworthy moments, and this one, started by Ricky Rubio dribbling between the legs of DeMarcus Cousins before finding Blake Griffin for the alley-oop finish, was by far the best of the evening.

    Thank God they added Rondo to the skills challenge instead of Ricky! That was sarcasm in case you didn’t notice.

    FYI he was asked, and declined. The sponsor is Taco Bell, and Rubio is trying to convince people that he’s Spanish, not Mexican.

    Nice job of the Wiz to trade him Mike Miller and Foye. Excellent!
