Ricky Rubio Honing His Jump Shot (Video)

Just before the NBA All-Star break, iFolloSports.com captured the above original video of the popular Ricky Rubio hoisting jump shots, in the minutes leading up to the Timberwolves game against the Hawks at Target Center. While the 24-year-old's ability to pass the ball goes unquestioned, there is no doubt that Rubio has to improve his jumper, for him to become an upper echelon player. This video represents yet another example of his continued interest in doing so.

Rubio has had an interesting season, to say the least. Shortly before it began, the Spaniard signed a four-year/$55 million contract extension (plus incentives) with the Wolves. Then, only three games in, he severely injured his ankle, missing the next 42 games.

Despite what has been a disappointing campaign, Minnesota's future remains very bright with likely Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins, slam dunk champion Zach LaVine, the much improved Shabazz Muhammad and what will be a 2015 lottery pick, all running alongside Rubio.
