Ricky Rubio puts on move, leaves Kobe in his wake (VIDEO)

Mar 1, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

The last couple weeks, Ricky Rubio is starting to look like his old self.

Thursday night that wasn’t enough to get Minnesota a win (the Lakers got that handily) but it was enough for Rubio to use a behind the back move that burned Kobe Bryant. Not only that but Rubio shoots so quickly and off he glass it defuses Dwight Howard and his shot blocking.

The second shot on that video is not on Kobe, he gets rubbed out by a strong high screen but again Rubio attacks and it leaves Howard unable to cope.

Minnesota is going to be a lot more fun — and likely a playoff team — next season if they can just keep everyone healthy for a season.

    I love that Rubio’s game translated. I just wish Kahnnnnnn would have kept Lawson instead of Flynn.

    Would have been the dirtiest backcourt in Bball.

      If you’re going to play that game… Minnesota could have taken Steph Curry instead of Flynn, Paul George over Wesley Johnson, and Tristan Thompson or Kenneth Faried over Derrick Williams. Everybody makes draft mistakes but KAAAAHHHHNNNNNN just makes more.
