efficient?
Rondo 2p% .499
Rubio 2p% .367

Rondo 3p% .241
Rubio 3p% .367

Rondo FT% .621
Rubio FT% .807
if you believe in eFG (being a Wilt/Shaq type guy, I tend to think it's mostly hogwash) then Rondo has advantage there.
USG% dead even.

Rebounding?
Rondo 4.5 RPG
Rubio 4.6 RPG
huh.

Rondo is not better than Rubio is, at any facet of defense. He's had better teammates so his so-called advanced defensive ratings look better. He's not better on ball, nor off-ball, doesn't get more steals, nor is he better in transition D. Rubio has destroyed at least 2 4on1 fast break opportunities this season which is elite.

rondo higher bb IQ than Rubio is lulz

Assists
Rondo to guys like Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett & Paul Pierce: 8.3 - 11
Rubio to guys like (D-league 10-day contract) Chris Johnson, Wes Johnson & Luke Ridnour: 7.7-8
Rubio to guys like Kevin Martin, Nikola Pekovic & Kevin Love: 9.7 & climbing

And last: how do you know Rondo is a better playoff performer? Rubio's Wolves have not been injury free long enough to know what Rubio will be like in the playoffs.
So really.......... your post needs a lot of work.
