Ricky Rubio announced that he “decided to stop his professional activity to take care of his mental health,” just weeks before the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

Sergio Scariolo, who has been the coach of the Spanish national team for a long time, was among the first to express his support for the skilled point guard.

“In La Familia, people have always come before results. All my love and support to Ricky, and my admiration for his transparency and, through it, his ability once again to lead by example,” Scariolo wrote on social media.
