Rubio Hopes To Resume Playing For Spanish National Team
Ricky Rubio, recovering from a torn ACL that forced him out of the 2012 Olympics, hopes to resume playing for the Spanish National team at EuroBasket 2013.
"I don't know, my health condition will decide,” Rubio said. “This summer, for example, I couldn't go because of my knee. If I don't go, knock on wood, I hope it's not because of injuries.
"From my part, I will always be available for my national team as long as my body lets me play."
Without Rubio, Spain lost to the U.S 107-100 in last summer's gold-medal game.
"It was such a pity," Rubio said. "I don't want to think about it because it's something very sad.
"In any case, there will be more summers and more Olympic Games and I hope to continue with the national team, where the atmosphere is great and we have such a nice time every summer.”
