Last week, Ricky Rubio was voted second place for the NBA Rookie of the Year award. Even with an injury that knocked him out of the end of his first season, Rubio has drawn positive attention to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Of course, he's always been expected to play well - he was chosen fifth overall in the 2009 draft. When he came back after playing in Spain for two years, he definitely lived up to the hype.
