Rafael Nadal's Message to Ricky Rubio: 'Everybody in Spain Is with You'

It was a sad moment in the NBA when the Minnesota Timberwolves' rookie phenom Ricky Rubio went down with a torn ACL on Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers.

On Saturday, the team announced that he will undergo reconstructive surgery and miss the rest of the season.

Since then, there has been a tremendous outpouring of support from the rest of the NBA.

Yesterday, fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal uploaded a YouTube video with "a message of support to Ricky," telling him, "You are very young and you have a lot of years to have great success, so all of my support, everybody in Spain is with you."

I'm currently in Canada, but ditto to everything Rafa just said. Get well soon, Ricky.
