Top 5 Ricky Rubio Plays
NBA highlight reels are typically dominated by high-flying dunks, ankle-breaking drives to the bucket, or buzzer beaters but this year, Ricky Rubio has demonstrated that a great pass can get you a spot on ESPN’s Top Plays.
What may be the best thing about Rubio is that he’s showing young and professional players that passing can be as glamorous as a LeBron James dunk.
Below, we’ve picked out Rubio’s top 5 plays from the 2011-12 NBA lines season so far:
5. Rubio hits Derrick Williams with a needle-threading bounce pass on the fast break.
4. Rubio’s alley-oop to Anthony Randolph (We’re going to hear that a lot).
3. Rubio is deadly on the fastbreak with another alley-oop.
2. Rubio goes around his back and finishes against the Detroit Pistons.
1. One of the craziest passes I’ve ever seen. Rubio’s vision is insane.
