Ricky Rubio tore his ACL in March. Derrick Rose tore his in April. Both players are point guards who their teams desperately need back on the floor, both face an excruciating journey back to the court. It’s not a race between the two, as the two teams aren’t in the same division, the two aren’t in direct competition for anything, and the two teams aren’t fighting for the same things. But it is notable that, via the Chicago Tribune, Rose is ahead of Rubio’s recovery schedule.
“It’s a tough injury,” Rubio said. “You are like six, eight, nine months without playing your favorite sport. Sometimes it’s just playing basketball where you forget about everything and just enjoy it. I just wish him a healthy recovery.”

Like Rose, Rubio has yet to start cutting. Unlike Rose, who started shooting jumpers weeks ago, Rubio is just progressing from set shots.

“Nobody had the same injury,” Rubio said. “I mean, a little more meniscus or two ligaments or just one. Every player is different. Every recovery is different.”



It’s nice that Rubio has so much empathy for Rose and that they can talk about what they’re going through.

It’s not a huge warning sign or even necessarily a warning sign that Rose is ahead of Rubio despite being a month behind chronologically. The body heals differently, and if it takes longer for Rubio, it takes longer. The focus is on his career, not this season, and Rubio’s still expected to be back in December, along with Kevin Love when his hand heals.

But if you’re factoring in conditioning time to get back up to speed and the curve for getting back to 85 or 90 percent once he’s back playing regularly, might want to pump the brakes a bit. And if not, at least give Rose props for his work to get this far.

I just keep thinking that RUbio must be looking out on the court at all the good off the ball movement and passing...

He must be salivating to have AK/Bud/Shved to pass to instead of Beasely/Johnson/Ellington.
"He's got a chance to be as good as he wants to be. With his quickness and his athleticism and his touch around the basket. I Don't see how a big guy in this league will guard him without fouling him."- Isiah Thomas on Jermaine O'Neal.

Any news from his recap?

Now he is in a criticual time,... (according to my personal experience :roll: ) He should be forcing a little bit... increasing the load in lateral movementes... jumping and so on. In the next few day we will know if he will be able to come back in december or he will need an extra month.

Spanish is a language that is spoken very fast. Specially in Spain.

Only in one country it is spoken very slowly. Guess what. In Chile.
So, a Chilean in Spain has to get used to twice to three times the speed.

Oh I'm used to hearing Spanish spoken fast. My sister's in laws are Puerto Rican, and our families were close growing up. When they are talking amongst themselves in Spanish,I can usually pick up on a few key words, but I'm not fast enough to understand everything they are saying.

To be honest I disagree with you... :(

Spanish is a language that is spoken like any other else... I have been living in English spoken countries.. spanish spoken, french spoken and in Bangaldesh... and all the languages are spoken very fast... It depends on who is speaken... JJ speaks fast... but I think that he also do ir in English... RR speaks quite slowly...

And ia can give you couple of examples of Americans in the same way...

I do not need examples. I mean on average. And I have not found anybody who was confronted to native Spanish speakers and did not mention the thing about the speed.

And not, JJ does not speak fast. It is an average or even low speed what he does.

To close the topic I went to check my friend google. According to the journal language, Spanish is the second fastest language of the world behind Japanese. The study also says that this is due to the "information density" of the language and that at the end what you can say in one minute is more or less the same in all analyzed languages.

Here is an article of Time about this study. Case closed?
