The TWolves take a major hit as Ricky Rubio is done for the season

Maybe the Phil Collins allusion wasn’t the best choice for a title involving a guy tearing his ACL. Well either way, Ricky Rubio is gone for the year; and with this type of injury he may not even be ready for the start of next season. This is unfortunate on so many levels. First off, the Timberwolves were finally beginning to get into the playoff hunt. Kevin Love has been an MVP caliber player and a part of that was due to having Rubio running the point. While the TWolves season may falter, the team that really takes a hit is the Spanish national team. With the olympics coming up this summer, I thought Spain would be the only team with a shot of upsetting team America. But without Rubio leading the way, it may be all USA once again. Lets hope that the Spaniard manages to have a quick recovery and be ready to go in time for next year. And on a completely irrelevant note, he bears a striking resemblance to Ringo Starr.
