Ricky Rubio was officially introduced to the media today in Minnesota and it's obvious that the young Spaniard is a bit shy.  But it didn't take him long to get somewhere he's a bit more comfortable as he immediately took to the Timberwolves practice gym and got some shots up.

The fact he's actually in Minnesota, actually working out is still kind of surreal. As of a month ago, there was a wonder if we'd ever see Rubio in the NBA. But there he is, working on his jumper in Minnesota.

Which is exactly what he needs to be doing. He has incredible vision and feel for the game, but the one glaring hole in his game is a poor shooting touch. Nothing a little NBA coaching and practicing can't help fix though.
