Ricky Rubio throws a sick pass between his own legs (VIDEO)

Here’s further proof that Ricky Rubio might be an actual real life wizard. The good kind of wizard — not the Jordan Crawford kind of wizard.

Late last night during a drubbing against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Rubio decided to bust out a new trick. With a trap coming on a pick and roll, Rubio winged a bounce pass between his own legs and between two defenders to an open Lou Amundson.

Unfortunately, an open Lou Amundson is still a Lou Amundson. With only Kevin Martin to beat, Lou botched one of the nicest dimes you’ll see all year by hilariously clanking a 4-foot shot off the top corner of the backboard. Really, the missed layup is almost as impressive as the pass.

Even though it didn’t amount to anything, it’s still so nice to have Rubio back on the court. You just never know what he’s capable of pulling off.

    Rubio and Shved are going to be a great backcourt over the next few years; they’re starting to build chemistry and have such huge upside

    Was that a Hasheem Thabeet sighting, too? WOW. It took him three seconds to realize the ball was past him and heading toward the basket.

    Wow, what a pass. Still in awe.
