Default Has a rookie ever had this big of an impact?

Record with Rubio: 22-20 (8th seed in West when he tore ACL)
Record post-Rubio torn ACL: 5-20 (currently 12th in West behind Portland)

Record with Rubio in starting lineup: 19-13 (.594 win percentage)
Record without Rubio in starting lineup: 7-21 (.250 win percentage)


WOW!!!!

Ya, I know other rookies have had amazing impacts as well. but Rubio changed this team from a winning percentage of .250 to .600.

Oh my gosh man it was a facetious statement meant to show Rubio's impact despite his "horrible" box scores and stats.

Well, they were 21-21 after the Lakers game that Rubio was injured in.

The next time they played the Lakers, they were still 22-23, but Pekovic missed the next nine games and they went 3-6 in that span.

That seemed to really start their stumble, as they finished the season on a 1-13 skid.

That team had more than one injury, did it not?

Here's more. When Rubio was playing the Wolves only let opponents score more than 110 points 2 times, since Rubio went down it happened 12 times

The Rubio effect is simple: when Rubio was on the team the Wolves gave a shit to make the playoffs.

When Rubio went down the Wolves went into tank mode.

Winner.

Once Rubio went down followed by Pek, they transformed into the Tankerwolves.
