The thing about Rubio is nobody is sure if he has a jumper or not, people only base him not having range due to his set shot mechanics.
But in Spain usually the PG does not shoot the ball from 3, not with consistency as it is done in the American game.
Same thing was said about Calderon in terms of his range when he came to the NBA, I'd rather see it first hand in the NBA game.
