MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES guard Ricky Rubio will be visiting the Philippines as part of the adidas Take On Tours from August 21 to 23, 2015. He is expected to engage his Filipino fans in a lot of activities both on and off the basketball court.
The 24-year old Rubio is coming off an injury-plagued 2014-2015 NBA season where he was limited to only 22 games. Still, the four-year pro averaged a respectable 10.3 points on top of career highs of 5.7 rebounds and 8.8 assists.
Selected by the Timberwolves as the fifth overall pick of the 2009 Rookie Draft, the then 18-year old Rubio opted to further hone his skills in his native Spain. Rubio finally made his NBA debut in 2011 and earned a spot on the All-Rookie First Team with norms of 10.6 points, 8.2 assists and 2.2 steals.
Rubio uses the adidas Crazylight Boost which is available in several colorways that matches the team uniforms of Minnesota. A new personalized shoe is expected to be unveiled just before the 2015-2016 NBA wars.
