As mentioned in our previous posting, Ricky Rubio has been working out in Los Angeles with a few big NBA names. Former Timberwolves icon Kevin Garnett has apparently been putting in a good word about Minnesota and it’s fans to Rubio.
Rubio was quoted in the Star Tribune:
“I know the weather won’t be like that when I go back,” Rubio said. “I love the place. The people are so nice. I talk with KG, too, and he talked to me great things about Minnesota. He said the crowd cheers very hard for the team. They love the sport. We have to fight to give them what they are waiting for us to do, to win.
Attitude might be a huge factor in Rubio being happy in Minnesota, and hearing good things from the biggest star the Timberwolves have ever had is a very good thing. It’s also nice to hear Garnett still thinks fondly of his time in Minnesota, and he’s putting in a good word to the Timberwolves 2009 first round draft pick.
