I will always love you Ricky.

Safe to say he's a fan favorite, so if Thibs does trade him, we better be getting something good (doesn't have to be a trade, but clearing his salary for a big name) and not for people like George Hill or Jeff Teague

I'm in the same boat as the other fans that want Ricky on this team so he could be a part of the playoff Wolves


This was my last Ricky Rubio post that wasn't replying to someone else..Wrote this in 2017 lol

I always wanted Ricky here and wanted him to be a part of the Wolves when they made the playoffs..

THE DREAM IS BACK ALIVE!! LETS GOO
2020 Wolves will make the playoffs

Trivia: What are the best single season 3-point percentages a Timberwolves player had with Rubio on the roster (minimum 2 3papg)? Try to think of possibilities before looking at the list....

Maybe is better to keep posting in the new Ricky Rubio topic.
This one brings back really bad memories.

You have always had the weakest takes here so I've never valued your opinion for a while now. Either people have very short memories here or they cant read back a couple pages and see how bad he was.His being here is a waste of money and he's dipping into other players time. We already have a former pg in the staff that speaks just as bad English and DLo already gets help from him.Rubio in the 4th is a liability.I'd take J Mclaughin and his cheaper contract over him all day.

Just follow the instructions and GTFO. You are trolling and adding nothing.

This list just reminds me how much of a difference having a 40% shooter can be. We need a few to produce big this season. Seeing Kevin Martin on top with a couple seasons of this list and honestly this team often couldn't buy a make from him when they needed one. He was on the back end of his productive years when he came here yet still tops the list. Kevin Love had more makes when you needed them and must have been chucking a bit earlier in games. That or my memory is not as good as I think. lavine was a fun shooter and could heat up but he had his rough days too.

Many great pressure shooters of this league only hover between 36-39 but they bring the goods when the pressure and need is highest. I have a feeling we are going to see 40s this season and lot's of open looks with Rubio/Dlo around and the team needs it. The league is starting to find some of these shooters and let them rip it.

The Wolves have the following 40+% three point shooters in their projected starting lineup. Beasley, Juancho and KAT. We have Russell at 36% which might sound only OK, but for those shooting 8 a game he is one of the very best. Rubio shot them at 36% also last year. At the top of our lineup we have incredible 3 point shooting. Edwards sucked, but I do think there is reason for optimism about improvement.

I was hoping this was from the 2020 draft day trade. It does say 2009 but I just caught the top at first.
I can't find any YouTube of him commenting on the return at first glance.

Thanks Klomp that was great, but I'm greedy. Is their any interview in audio available that you're aware of?
