The thing is, Barcelona did absolutely nothing to help the development of Rubio's game. They just used him as a player who had the potential to become a great player, but if that didn't work out, he would always be a solid player who could find the open man at any time and direct the offense when necessary. They didn't care that he wasn't shooting or scoring well, and they didn't do anything to try to improve it. They were satisfied with his passing ability and his ability to direct the offense.
