Ricky Rubio with the double behind-the-back dribble drive (VIDEO)

Mar 13, 2013, 12:36 AM EST

It is so much fun to have the old Ricky Rubio back.

He was missing the first couple months after his return from ACL surgery but on Tuesday night he dropped a triple-double on the Spurs — 21 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists — and he dropped this move. The rare double behind-the-back dribble drive.

Next season in Minnesota, with Rubio and Kevin Love back and healthy, this is a playoff team and a fun one to watch.

    Isn’t there another NBA player who tore his ACL last year?

    If Stern could please grace us with a top pick in the draft, as he likes to do when a new owner is buying a team…the Timberwolves could be super dangerous in the playoffs

    I absolutely love it when this guy does this stuff. What a fun player to watch.. for years to come.

      There’s no NBA player I’d rather watch.

    Any truth to the rumor that Popovich had his people stuff Rubio in a duffel-bag and smuggle him back to San Anton’ with ‘em?

    Rubio is the man.

    Lots of folks grimmaced when Rubio was taken with an early 1st round pick and was not expecting to play his 1st year. This kid was well worth the pick and the wait.

    My sentiment exactly, hope he stays healthy to watch the show
