Ricky Rubio is a phenom rising. At age 14 he was the youngest player ever to be drafted by the Spanish ACB League, the second-most competitive basketball league in the world. This young prodigy spent his adolescent years becoming known as one of the biggest talents in European basketball and he is now making waves in the NBA. Despite his notability, Rubio was carefully shielded from the media during his rise to stardom. Both his basketball team and his family agreed not to make him available for interviews until his 18th birthday. As a result, little is known about the personal life of young Rubio. This unauthorized biography follows Rubio from Spain to Beijing to Minnesota and explores what is known about Rubio's upbringing, his early basketball career, and details his breakthrough into the NBA. This book also includes all of Ricky Rubio's Spanish league and NBA statistics.
