Included in his (Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio’s) repertoire was a seldom-seen running floater used to counter approaching shot blockers.

“He definitely has to develop that shot,” Adelman said. “He has to learn how to get shots off when he gets into that area because when their big guys are there, he has to get over them. [San Antonio point guard] Tony Parker developed that shot and it makes him so difficult to guard.”

Rubio said he has studied Parker’s shot, and he is working on his own.

“Tony Parker has one of the best. There are a lot of players who use it, and I want to add it to my game.”
