My Ricky Rubio Series 1 debut @nbatopshot moment has been skyrocketing in value the last 24 hours. Is Top Shot gaining traction in Spain or is there something else I’m missing? pic.twitter.com/qnzBmnmway4:06 PM

#Cavs Ricky Rubio already with 8 assists in 11 minutes in this spot start. Last year, when Darius Garland was out of the lineup, the Cavs were using Damyean Dotson, Yogi Ferrell and some other dudes I can’t remember at point guard. – 7:43 PM

Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
#Cavs Ricky Rubio already has four assists here in the first five minutes. He has such a way of finding guys for open looks. – 7:18 PM

Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef

CHI — Lonzo Ball, Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, Javonte Green, Nikola Vucevic

Ricky Rubio has played 25 minutes next to just Darius Garland, 20 minutes next to Collin Sexton, five minutes with both, and 10 minutes with neither.
Per 36 preseason line of 19/4/8, and feels like he’s going to be close to 30 minutes. – 2:21 PM

More on this storyline

The Spanish point guard will become a free agent after the conclusion of the 2021-22 season. He is not yet thinking about the decisions to come, therefore not ruling out any possibility. “I am not thinking about that right now,” he pointed out replying to a question regarding a potential return to Europe, “At the end of the season, I will be a free agent and consider my options. The way I have played will determine my market value. Along with my family, we will assess the options and together take the next step.” -via EuroHoops.net / August 30, 2021
