Ricky Rubio grew up obsessed with Michael Jordan and “wanted to be black”
During an interview with Cadena Ser, Ricky Rubio talked about his love for Michael Jordan and growing up wanting to be black. Seriously, as a child he wanted to grow up to be a black man. Here’s his full quote, translated by HoopsHype.
I was obsessed with Jordan. I just watched the NBA and just watched black players. I wanted to play (in the States) and I told my
mother I wanted to be black.
He fell a couple inches short in the height department and didn’t get enough melanin for the skin. He also can’t fly or shoot or play D like MJ but in my book, he can be just as fun to watch… sometimes.
How can you not like this guy after watching these videos.
