It wasn't a basketball game or even anywhere near a court. But, on his Twitter page Ricky Rubio called Sunday one of his favorite events of the year.

Rubio and his teammates teamed up with the Minnesota Adoption Resource Network to host the 9th annual Holiday Shopping for Kids event.

They surprised 22 children with $500 Target shopping sprees. They helped the kids shop for toys, clothes and school supplies.
