Default Re: Ricky Rubio not as bad in Euroleague as you have been lead to believe

To be honest I never really liked Rubio, always felt like he would be known as choker in his career...
But his last season in NBA made me to start liking him... There is no basketball fan who didn't enjoy seeing him play last year...
It is obvious that NBA style of play suits him better, he has no outside shot and with congested space in Euroleague due to no defensive 3 seconds, he was never really able to score efficently. Main reason for his sub par last season in Europe is that all teams started sagging off him, his defender was closing his passing lanes and he had no space to operate as he was unable to penetrate or score from the outside consistently.
It will be interesting to see will NBA teams change their D to counter him and how he will react to it...
