went to the game friday night against the heat. he sees the court like an all star veteran which leads to a lot of open shots for players. has better range then i thought as well on his shot. his style is how a true nba point should be, pass first.

Yeah I've been really impressed with his game, particularly since he was not getting much PT in Europe. Rubio's game seems to fit the NBA better compared to Europe. He has terrific court vision, decent defense, and he's even been able to knock down the outside jumpshot (considered his weakness).

On that note, I'm seriously pulling for Rick Adelman and the Wolves to make some noise now that they've ditched Rambis and that silly triangle offense that just wasn't a fit for those players.

OKC made me look nice a couple of years ago, Memphis finally moved on up, now it's Minny's turn.

Run those younger legs!

I enjoy Rubio's passing alot...looks like the second coming of Magic Johnson ....definitely has good court vision and i am even more surprised at his shooting. They have a good future i think though probably will be either a bit below .500 or possibly make .500 ... one thing that i've seen from Adelman at Houston was giving his young players many minutes, so Rubio might be limited.

For you MN fans more in-tune than me.....WHAT is going to happen with Kevin Love?

No extension yet, are the twolves unsure he's for real or something? Are they possibly looking to trade him?

The question remains why it took so long.

i think love wanted the true max for him, which would be 5 years 78 mill, like westbrook in okc got.

new cba only lets you have 1 max player per team. so if you max love, ricky keeps blowing up like he is now, he is going to want a max.

wolves are looking out into the future and want to keep both love and rubio on the team. they are expecting rubio to turn into a max contract player.

I love to watch Rubio also----this kid is a player.

In some situations he reminds me of a smaller version of Pete Maravich------Rubio can do some really magical things on the court.

The Wolves are headed in the right direction-----if they can motivate Beasley to be a multi dimensional player this could be a tough team. I agree on Rick Adelman----he is a solid coach and seems to get the most out of his players.

Wolves fans-----there is some light shining in.
