Rubio will return tomorrow to fight the Trailblazer. The former Golden Boy has regarded Cleveland as the last stop of the NBA
According to WOJ, the NBA’s “god of revelations”, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Ricky Rubio will conduct testing training today. If everything is good, he will play tomorrow’s Cavaliers game against Trailblazers.
Rubio, who is 32 years old this year, suffered a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee during the match against Pelican on December 28, 2021. He not only missed all the games of the 21-22 season, but also was packed by the Cavaliers and sent to the Pacers in February 22, in exchange for the current team forward Lewell.
During the off-season last year, Rubio, who was about to become a free agent, once again signed a three-year contract of 18.4 million dollars with the Cavaliers.For the 32-year-old, this will be his last contract in the NBA. He repeatedly revealed that because his children were growing up, he almost returned to Spain to let them receive local education, so his time in the United States would not be too long.
Rubio, known as the “golden boy”, led the team to win the championship in Russia with 51 points, 24 rebounds and 12 assists in the final of the European U16 Championship in 2006.
Then, at the age of 18, he joined the “golden generation” of the Spanish men’s basketball team at that time to compete in the Beijing Olympic Games, and made outstanding performance in the finals.In 2009, he was selected by the Timberwolves in the fifth place in the first round and began his NBA career. After that, he played for Jazz, Sun, Timberwolves and Knights. The average career score is 11.1 points, 7.6 assists and 1.8 steals, and the total salary is 122 million.
In 2019, he led his team to participate in the China Men’s Basketball World Cup, not only winning the championship, but also winning the mvp.
