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.
“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.”
