Suns’ Ricky Rubio Believes He is Hitting his Prime

Published

Phoenix Suns veteran point guard Ricky Rubio, whom they signed during free agency, believes that he is just now entering his prime.

Rubio, who is a long-needed answer at point guard for the Suns, is excited to join the team and likes where they are heading.

“The culture is changing here. You can see with the moves they’ve made, going in the right direction” Rubio said, during an appearance on “Burns & Gambo” of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.

“I’m about to hit my prime, physically, and mentally, so, I wanted to have a place where I can show that.”

Rubio is the veteran presence that may pair perfectly with Suns superstar Devin Booker, and drew interest from a number of teams during free agency.

“It’s been a crazy summer” Rubio said. “It was my first time in free agency so I had to figure out how it worked, when a team asks you to be a big part of the project, I thought I had to keep them in mind. It came down to the last minute but I took a big opportunity here in Phoenix.”

Rubio believes that at 28, he is the best he has ever been and feels he has a lot of basketball left in him.

“Yeah, I’m 28″ Rubio said.

“Physically I feel stronger than ever. The last 3-4 years have been healthy seasons overall. I feel like I have a lot of basketball ahead of me and still the best is yet to come.”
