Dime Collection Album
Ricky Rubio could probably use a razor for Christmas, but that might look a little too passive aggressive. So instead, I picked out a coin collection album for all the many dimes he has built up this year.
Rubio is averaging a career high 9.4 assists per game this year, and the passing has been contagious. The Suns lead the league in assists per game at 28.4, so everyone is getting in on the dime collecting trend.
Unfortunately, this very impressive stat hasn’t translated to an equally impressive number of wins. I’m sure Rubio would trade his wealth of dimes for a boat load of wins, but in the absence of that, he’ll at least be able to enjoy his collection.
My favorite Rubio passes are the ones that fake out everyone watching at home in addition to everyone on the court and a Suns player is laying it up before anyone realizes what happened.
Dimes like those need proper storage to be minted for all time.
Hopefully next year (or even a few months from now…perhaps Easter) I’ll be able to give Rubio something to store all his wins in, but until now, a dime collection album will have to do.
