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.
