This new TV spot with Foot Locker and adidas asks an important question: does Ricky Rubio become a backyard wrestler after he leaves the court?
The answer is sadly no. This is disappointing as it would be pretty awesome to see Ricky in the squared circle. He’d be a solid cruiserweight in the vein of the legendary Spanky and could probably pull off a decent Swanton if he had to. But alas, Ricky is focused on making a playoff run with the Timberwolves and chair shots to the head aren’t conducive to that bid.
However, if the basketball thing doesn’t work out, he could recruit Kevin Love to be the next Barry Windham and get a solid tag team push going.
