Ricky Rubio Tells Teammate Alexey Shved to ‘Change This Face,’ ‘Be Happy’ During Timberwolves-Lakers Game (Video)


These days the shorthanded, injury-plagued Minnesota Timberwolves don’t have much to be smiling about, but that hasn’t stopped Ricky Rubio from trying to bring some joy to the struggling Wolves.

Minnesota has lost four straight and 20 of their last 24. Their playoff hopes may be lost, but at least even in the worst of times, Minnesota fans can rest easy that Ricky Rubio will always be Ricky Rubio.

The point guard offered some advice to downtrodden teammate Alexey Shved during Thursday night’s 116-94 loss to the Lakers, telling him to “change this face,” and “be happy.” Check out the exchange below that even coaxed a smile out of Shved.
