Trust me, it won't take more than a year to come to a conclusion about Rubio.
I don't think that is fair. Not only is he adjusting to a new style of play and different caliber of athlete, he is a good deal younger than most first year players in the NBA. With points, much like bigs, you need to give them a full 2-3 years before you can even start to call them a bust.
