So for offensive wizards with court vision like Rubio the NBA offensively is easier. For slow, unathletic Euro guards like Spanoulis and Jasikevicius it is much harder.
Spanoulis is leaps more athletic than Rubio is. Rubio was one of the least athletic rotation point guards in Euroleague. Rubio said the NBA is EASIER than the Euroleague.
Rubio is less athletic and slower than Spanoulis, so if Spanoulis is too slow and nonathletic to play in the NBA, then so is Rubio.
