1990 – Happy 23rd birthday to Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio (@rickyrubio9), who is entering his third NBA season. Due to knee surgery in early 2012, he was a part of just 57 games last season. Rubio’s 4.2 steal percentage led the league in 2012-13. In addition, his assist numbers have been among the best in the game during his short career. After playing in just 98 contests in his NBA tenure, he hopes he will finally be able to experience a full season on the court.
