Learn Spanish with Ricky Rubio: 'Our World Cup'
Emotions are running high in the Rubio household these days, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Every positive exclamation Rubio has on Twitter brings us a new chance to learn from his enthusiastic and energetic ways, while also giving us a chance to bone up on our Spanish as well.
Truly a giver on, and off the court.
Many of Rubio’s tweets these days revolve around the 2014 FIBA World Championships this coming summer in his home country of Spain, and today is no different.
TRANSLATION: Tomorrow at 19:00, the draw for the WC2014. Begins “our” World Cup.
Unlike many of the tweets we feature in this ongoing segment, this comes from the cuddly horse’s mouth.
It was tweeted Sunday and referenced Monday’s FIBA World Championships draw, which happened at 7 p.m. Spanish time.
That means it came down the line at 1 p.m. here in our fair state, and in case you’re curious for the results, they are here.
Mañana a las 19:00 el sorteo de la WC2014. Empieza "nuestra" Copa del Mundo!!!— Ricky Rubio (@rickyrubio9) February 2, 2014
What’s important to Rubio is that Spain drew the toughest group of them all, a cluster that also features Tony Parker and France and the always tough Brazilian team.
We’re guessing Ricky isn’t too worried about that though, since his love for Spain is deep and passion for the upcoming FIBAs is one that burns throughout his extremities.
Oh Ricky, all you lack is a jump shot, but your loyal and undyingly upbeat nature makes up for the bricks you throw up on a nightly basis. Rest assured, our love for you is a swish that couldn’t be stopped by all the bricks in the world.
Video: Chandler Parsons’ Alley-Oop Rejected By Rim
The Rockets handed the Cavs another loss on Saturday night with their two all-stars, James Harden and Dwight Howard, out dueling a Luol Deng, Kyrie Irving combination that looked good in spots on their way to 45 combined points. But Harden and Howard had 54 together as they built a first quarter lead and never lost it at the Toyota Center in Houston. Despite the big effort from their two stars, one of their ancillary scoring options, Chandler Parsons only had seven in the win, and failed miserably during a lob throw by Harden.
A few weeks back, we saw Blake Griffin get snuffed on the slam by a piece of iron. The same thing happens here as Parsons gets rejected by the side of the rim after the lob from Harden.
