James Harden Snaps Ricky Rubio’s Ankles, Incredible Twitter Feud Erupts Between Teams

RIP Ricky Rubio (1990-2015). Teammates and coaches tried to tell him, “Don’t reach, Ricky!” but he just didn’t listen. HE DIDN’T LISTEN. And now look at him, six-feet under.

As that shot was floating through the air, Rubio was thinking, “Please, if there is a god out there, do not let this shot go in.” But according to Syrio Forel in Game of Thrones, there is only one god, and his name is death. On this day, death came for Ricky.

DVRs were rewound over and over, people on Twitter went crazy, thousands of Vines were created, and James Harden did a shimmy dance. It was beautiful and disturbing all at the same time.

The best was yet to come, though, as the Houston Rockets social media intern decided to rub salt in the wound, prompting a response from the Minnesota Timberwolves social media intern that ended about as poorly as Ricky’s steal attempt.

Ruthless. Get a second body bag for the T-Wolves’ Twitter intern. He dead, too.
