DPOY, don't question his ability to play defense. If Nash plays defense in the NBA, Rubio can too.

6'4", 18 years old, incredible vision

The only reason why Blake Griffin is #1 pick is because he is guaranteed to be a solid starter at minimum.
Rubio can possibly become a bust, but his absolute potential in my opinion is higher than Griffin's.

People also need to keep in mind that, even if Rubio IS going to be something, it will PROBABLY take him YEARS to even get to that level. He is 18 years old, coming fresh out of the euro league. So before people go, after ONE season and call him a bust, let it be known it WILL TAKE RUBIO MULTIPLE YEARS TO HAVE ANY TYPE OF IMPACT IN THE NBA.
