Although just one season into his young NBA career, Ricky Rubio has quickly become one of the most exciting young point guards to watch in the league with his superior vision and playmaking ability.
Drafted 5th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2009 NBA Draft, the spanish-born point guard has been tearing up courts at the professional level since the age of 14. While his exciting NBA rookie campaign was cut short by a torn ACL last season, Rubio still finished second overall in Rookie of the Year voting after averaging about 11 points and 8 assists a night for the young up and coming Timberwolves.
Rubio's return to the hardwood will be made not only with this REV30 Jersey by adidas on his back, but also with the three stripes on his feet after signing a longterm deal over the summer with the brand he grew up loving.
The young guard's TWolves road jersey is constructed from 60 percent recycled materials, and features adidas' Formotion technology to help reduce seams, decrease friction and provide Rubio with a natural unrestrictive fit.
Currently recovering from reconstructive knee surgery, Rubio aims to make his return to the point for the Minnesota Timberwolves early next year.
