Ricky Rubio and the Sportswrap speed special

October 23, 2009

 

Ricky Rubio is the one that got away from the NBA. The number five draft pick opted to spend another year or two in Spain rather than join the Minnesota Timberwolves and FC Barcelona are understandably elated to have got him.

Click the video above to see Rubio celebrate his 19th birthday by helping Barcelona demolish Fenerbahce in the Euroleague. We also take a look at Jenson Button’s homecoming after his Formula 1 world title victory, and why batsmen the world over should be glad a certain Usain Bolt opted for track and field over cricket.

Back next week, same time same place, for more.

I think the barca is focusing more on big guns (players) then making strategies for games and trying to win

 

Happy Happy Birthday
