I think a lot of it has to do with him being a freak of nature athletically, but it's made me more hopeful about Rubio's return being an early Christmas present.


at the risk of going ultra-homer in praise of AP, I'm having a hard time envisioning anybody in all of professional sports with the mindset to put the work into rehab AP did. He seems to have put the same determined, aggressive mentality into rehab that he puts into his runs.

With that being said, Happy Birthday, Klomp. I didn't know you were older than me. I had always thought you'd be 23 or 24 now :D

Nah, I'm an old fogey...I'm almost as old as Lupus! (not really)

I'm sure that you don't drive nearly as well as Lupus in competitive go-kart racing though.

OJ Mayo is one of the best defenders in the league, hes a two way player and hes a great passer and playmaker.

Terry Porter, filling in as head coach, said that Ricky Rubio is a long way from being in game shape. Needs more practices, he says.

“@APkrawczynski: Adelman says still no timetable for Rubio's 1st game. Seemed to hesitate about Weds with 4 in 5 nights coming up this wkd”

“@alex_cono: "I think he could go out and play some right now, but again, is that the smart thing to do?" — coach Adelman on Rubio's return. #twolves”

Adelman said medical staff testing of Rubio's leg strength will determine when he plays. And that's still TBD

I wouldn't be surprised if he was actually cleared to play but they're trying to confuse Denver's game planning again.

“@DarrenWolfson: A Ricky Rubio source via email when asked if the season debut will come tomorrow night: "Not tomorrow." Will continue to monitor. #Twolves”


My guess now is the 15th, or maybe more likely, the 20th.
