GQ Interviews the Unicorn
GQ; You guys have been a lot of fun to watch so far.
Ricky Rubio: Well, we're not winning, so...
GQ: Yeah, but, c'mon—this is loads better than last year. What has to change?
Ricky Rubio: We're close, it's just not enough. We're young, we can do good things, but only if we believe we can, and sometimes in games, we're like two different teams in the same game. Like in Chicago, in the first quarter we were terrible, and then by the second quarter everything was going well—but we had to recover twenty points in five minutes. We have to play that way from the start.
GQ: What about the best single pass you've made?
Ricky Rubio: I don't know, I don't want to think about that.
GQ: Was it the one through Dirk's legs to Anthony Tolliver?
Ricky Rubio: [considers] I just want to stay with the big winning like we did against Dallas and San Antonio and Washington.
GQ: What's the best movie you've seen recently?
Ricky Rubio: All of my teammates are talking about Warrior—so I think that's next up next trip. Kevin Love and all these guys are saying it's a great movie.
Young athletes have terrible taste in movies.
