I don’t miss the #NBAPlayoffs even if I have to pick up my bro @marcrubiovives and @ainonacohi at the airport.
As Kelly Dwyer pointed out at Ball Don’t Lie, the important thing here is Rubio is keeping that surgically-repaired knee elevated. Minnesota needs him back next year if they are going to take the next step to playoff team.
Rubio was second in the Rookie of the Year voting despite missing the last third of the NBA season when his ACL gave out. He’s an entertaining and special player (and a better defender than people think), we want him back next season.
