Rubio 'itching' to make season debut

Author:

Ricky Rubio is expected to make his season debut in the near future, and he's ready for the pressure to succeed. Rubio told reporters Friday, that "the more difficult the challenge, the better it is for me." He doesn't know if he'll be ready next week, or in three weeks -- but he'll be on the court when his knee feels ready.

Rubio felt good following his first practice a few days ago, and he joked that he wanted to play a month ago.

Since we still can't follow Rubio on the court, he's definitely worth a follow on Twitter.
