Ricky Rubio has a flair for the game that makes him exciting to watch, even as purists see plenty of areas where he needs to improve in order to become a more complete NBA player.

That won’t stop us from enjoying this preseason highlight, however, where Rubio uses a behind-the-back dribble to get past a defender and into the paint before delivering a spinning bounce pass to big man Nikola Pekovic for the easy finish.

    Could we finally see if a healthy Minnesota team lives up to expectation? I’ve been wanting to see what they look like with all their pieces intact since Rubio joined the team. They could be a good team.

    He is so smooth with the basketball. He reminds me of Chris Paul- not as good of a scorer, but their ability to dribble around the court and make things happen is incredible.

    Rubio has heavenly cosmic vision. He reminds me of Pistol Pete (but without the pistol).

    Basic 5 ft bounce pass along the baseline. Spinning after you pass doesn’t make it a spinning pass.

    So you all solved the mystery of how to embed football and hockey videos so that I can view on iPhone, but just can’t figure it out for hoops. Oh well.
