Continued: Reusse: Wolves can follow Rubio out of the abyss

Rubio’s overall play in those 11 games was tremendous. He’s now the soul of this team. That will remain so when the Timberwolves reassemble next October with Kevin Love in uniform.

Money will be the No. 1 factor in the potential returns of Nikola Pekovic, Andrei Kirilenko and Chase Budinger, but No. 2 will be this: They want to play with Ricky Rubio.

They know that Rubio is driven to get them the ball. They know that Rubio is driven to win and not by personal glory. And they know that if they stick around, Rubio will get this team out of the abyss.

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. • preusse@startribune.com
