Q&A: Ricky Rubio

KR: The question everyone wants to know. How’s the ankle doing?

RR: Pretty good. I’ve been working all summer to get healthy. I’ve been cleared to play 5-on-5 a month ago. I haven’t done much, but I feel good. I’ve been doing conditioning and all of that stuff to keep me in shape and do a lot of stuff.

KR: You’ve met with new Vice President of Sports Performance Arnie Kander already. He seems to be a big fan of yours. What’s he been like?

RR: Yeah, I mean, I like the chemistry we already have between the both of us. He’s smart, he’s knowledgeable about not just what he does, but life in general. He’s amazing to work with him and learn from him.

KR: It was probably tough for you to sit out for Spain this summer. I’m assuming you’ll be suiting up next summer for the Olympics?

RR: Yeah, I mean if I’m healthy I will. I was watching the European championships through TV and it was so tough to watch it on TV but it was fun to see them win.
