Kevin Love is the Wolves best player, but Rubio is their most important one -- and there's a difference in those two.
Love is one of the NBA's Top 10 players and the game's best power forward. He scores inside or out, rebounds like crazy and makes double-double performances a nightly occurrence.
But Rubio ties it all together. He makes everyone better, even Love, who missed Saturday's game because of flulike symptoms.
Rubio influences a game in myriad ways, whether it's with his passing, his scoring or his defense. It's no coincidence that the Wolves fell apart in his absence last season.
Rubio makes this team go. His teammates feed off him and the energy he creates with his no-look passes and flair for the dramatic.
