Ricky Rubio with some ridiculous highlights from the Rising Stars Challenge (VIDEO)

Feb 16, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

Kenneth Faried may have won the MVP of the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, and Kyrie Irving may have stolen the show. But Ricky Rubio had some impressive highlights of his own during the game that definitely deserve to be noticed.

The brilliance in this clip’s first highlight doesn’t seem to be recognized by either the fans in the building  or the announcers on the broadcast, as Rubio puts the ball through his legs from behind before going in for the layup.

The second was the best of the bunch, though, as Rubio goes no-look between his legs to find Bradley Beal for the uncontested slam dunk.

    Ricky playing very well over past 8 games, really picking up where he left off last season before the injury, and Wolves would be winning a lot of games if Kevin Love were healthy right now. With 2000 jump shots a day this offseason Rubio will be so dynamic and Next year both of those guys will play Sunday night on All Star Weekend – go Wolves!

    To think the Timberwolves drafted Flynn, Lawson and Rubio. Now just imagine the possibilities with Rubio and Lawson on the same team.
