He's projected to be number 4 in 2009, almost surely he will go, I would hope not, but I think he wants to himself.

I don't really see him going so soon. I think it will really depend on how he plays next year if Rudy Fernandez is gone. He will be the leader of the team then and that's gonna be hard for a kid, even being as good as him.

Besids, what happens with the age limit for the draft, is it already in place or not? That could change also the year on which he could be elegible.

Not going to happen for another 4 or 5 years i think. he is still only 17!he has had some ups and downs this year as you'd expect.they need to let him grow into a decent player not put too much pressure on the lad.

The age limit is 19, 2007 was the first draft that had this rule. Here is the projection: http://www.nbadraft.net/index.asp?content=mock2009 the rankings are based off of this year, but this is just to give you an idea of where the future is projected to be drafted. I would hope Rubio will stay for at least 4 or so years, but I think he'll be in the NBA by the time he turns 20. Maybe if Rudy stays then Ricky also will. But the best time for Rudy to come to Portland would be for the next season, because they could really use someone like him.

So the thing about raising the limit to 21 is not going to be true, isn't it?
Anyway, I also would like to see Ricky staying for at least 3 or 4 years more. The bad thing for Ricky is that Aito G. Reneses is leaving Joventut. Let's see how he performs without a coach like Aito, who is fantastic taking the best of his players.

Atleast the coach taking over is sito alonso who has been aito's 2nd for a few years so he knows rubio well.not someone like ivanovic coming in ,who could really destroy his progress.

Maybe it would be better for Rudy to go to a power house, I mean Joventut is good, but someone who could give him good money and convince him to stay, for example Panathinaikos. I don't know what he thinks about going somewhere else, but it's a suggestion. The new age limit, the NBA is working on it, David Stern wants 20 year minimum. I don't know much about either one of the coaches, but usually it can affect a young player like that.

i can see him being a steve nash pete maravich type of player because the dude is hella week i dont even think he can bench the bar once if you look at his arms and he is not explosive at all he can only dunk off one foot basic dunk if aderline is pumping in the game

but he is the next big thing point guards dominate now

He is not as weak as you think.he is deceptively strong and his defence is outstanding!he may look langy but the guy isnt as weak.the problem is that some people,especially nba watchers,think all basketball players should be pumped up like arnie,strength is not everything,skill and technical ability still count ,,,,in europe anyway.
