Ricky Rubio Is A Sheer Delight

Ricky Rubio is possibly the most instantly-endearing sports figure since an apple-cheeked Jim Thome first dingered his way into our hearts. Science has proven that the three most squeal-inducing things known to humankind are kittens, this dog and Ricky Rubio. With that in mind, hit the jump to see the most endearing photo of Rubio that you've seen in, like, 20 minutes at least.

On Saturday, Ricky Rubio was picking up his brother at the airport during the first game of the Western Conference final. He tweeted out this picture:

h/t BuzzFeed

Awww, look at the little fella! Makes you want to put him inside your shirt pocket and take him home with you. This is almost like a scene out of some syrupy, twee indie comedy. You can imagine Zooey Deschanel gazing at him from afar while Best Coast plays in the background. Sort of like (500) Days of Summer, only not terrible.

Officer, stop that man! He is Ricky Rubio and he has stolen our hearts.
