Set up the podium ASAP! Ricky Rubio has an announcement: he's retiring from the game of basketball. Okay, Rubio isn't really calling it quits, but he probably should after getting thoroughly embarrassed at the hands of the Rockets' James Harden, who played him like a puppet on a string and then knocked down the jumper right in his grill.

R.I.P. Rubio's ankles, pride, everything.
