VIDEO: Joel Przybilla Walks Over Ricky Rubio

This just wasn't nice. For whatever reason, Joel Przybilla shoved Ricky Rubio to the ground, which isn't so bad; the NBA is a contact sport after all. But then Przybilla had to take it a step further with a move only meant to disrespect Rubio, the much-heralded rookie guard.

After knocking Rubio to the ground, Przybilla wanders over the top of his prone opponent, stepping right over Rubio. Rubio's head gets caught right between Przybilla's legs, and the referees don't take kindly to the whole encounter, getting the Blazers forward T'ed up.

There is a bit of a funny moment in the video, though. Hit the jump for more.

Notice that out of everyone, only J.J. Barea is alert. As the rest of the Timberwolves mill about, Barea comes from the other side of the court, screaming "Hey, hey, hey" at Przybilla like that's going to stop anything. Then Barea, who looks to be about half Przybilla's height, tries to start something.

Where you at, Kevin Love?
