:::: UPDATE :::: As pointed out below by commenter lubbadubb, dialing the "Love Dial" billboard number yields a sultry voicemail treat from Ricky himself. Although it's a bit hard to follow the specifics, it definitely sounds like the Spanish heartthrob says something about "naked women" and "hot minutes."

Here's our recording -- if you'd like the dial the Love Line up for yourself, the number is 1-855-NEED-LOVE:

The latest NBA on ESPN promo features a sneaky Ricky Rubio secretly running some sort of Kevin Love "Love Dial" business.

Don't let the good looks and boyish charm fool you -- Ricky is as competitive as they come.
Seventeen games under .500 and 10 games out of a playoff berth, it's been a bitterly disappointing year for the Timberwolves. But one undeniable bright spot has been Ricky Rubio's stellar play now that he looks to be fully recovered from last season's knee injury.

Feeling down? Just imagine Ricky patting you on the head and telling you to turn the frown upside down, and your attitude will improve in a jiff.
If the whole basketball thing doesn't work out for him -- and these days, it's working out pretty well -- Ricky Rubio would probably be an amazing self-help guru.

This Ricky Rubio guy... he's not like anybody else.
The All-Star Weekend's Rising Stars game is pretty much a glorified pickup contest, but still -- a no-look, through-the-legs pass is a no-look, through-the-legs pass.

-- Ricky's return started off promisingly...

Rookie Alexey Shved, one of the few silver linings during a depressing season, got bit by the Wolves's formidable injury bug last night on this play.
Last night, the Timberwolves went down in defeat, and two more key players left the game with injuries. In other words, it was pretty much a typical day in the course of an increasingly lost season.
