Ricky Rubio Goes Through DeMarcus Cousins' Legs Before Going To Lob City With Blake Griffin

There was no doubt that Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio was going to put on a dazzling passing display during the 2012 Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night, but he went beyond those expectations when he dribbled through Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins' legs in order to break through Cousins' full court press.

Leaving Cousins in the dust, Rubio ended the play in the best way possible: throwing an alley-oop to Blake Griffin. Video highlights and the wonderful gif are both included below the jump.

Here is Rubio's highlight play in looping fun (and embarrassment for Cousins) with video after:


Rubio had 12 points on 5-for-9 shooting and seven assists for Team Shaq in a 146-133 loss to Team Chuck.
