Not only the numbers suggest but the eye test as well.

Does he suck enough to justify paying Jeff Teague 9M more on a GIGANTIC long term deal?

Nope.

Thibs saves the 9M, uses it on an awesome bench guy or tries to swing a move to pair up Milsap with KAT

No Teague extra 9M, no Taj Gibson extra 14M. That's 23M, Milsap got 30M.

Pretty sure he would have taken a bit less money to play next to KAT and Jimmy Buckets

They are basically a toss up for 4th, 5th, and 6th best pg in the league with Wall. Curry, Paul, and Westbrick are a tier above them at the top.

Rubio when his jumper is falling is basically CP3 level or close enough

He does almost everything else at a high level except finish and score/shoot

Too bad his scoring streaks never last

I don't necessarily agree, but I've always said he's vastly underrated b/c ppl think "omg he cant shoot 3's derp derp" and think he's trash.

Dude is basically good-to-elite at everything except 3's. But nah, he's trash b/c that's a "mandatory" skill.

Not sure. Minnesota has Towns starting not two non stretch bigs which can make Ricky's horrible shooting less a factor. But on the other hand Ricky's supposedly great matador D doesn't work without Gobert to save his ass.

I'd take Teague or pretty much any other starter right now just so I didn't have to watch Ricky anymore. He should be a back-up. He plays with a lot of energy.

Millsap lived in Denver so that's a big part of why he went there.

He was supposed to be a great defender like CP3 but what I've seen is someone that is usually playing behind his guy and gambling too much. He gets away with a lot of it because Gobert is a generational defensive force.

He was supposed to be a high level passer and while he does make some great passes he makes a lot of the worst passes you'll ever see that just leave you scratching your head to what he was even thinking. His basketball IQ isn't very high.

He plays with a lot of energy but he runs around like a chicken without his head. That would play better off the bench.

What he's best at is flopping if you think that is something to hang your hat on. The refs called him on it yesterday. He also can hit the mid-range shot which teams will let him have all night.

He also couldn't finish before this year. He is doing that inconsistently at best now. When he makes lay-ups he is a different player but he's had some of the worst missed lay-ups this year that I've ever seen. Air balls on more than one occasion from point blank. For the Jazz playing with two non shooting bigs being able to stretch the floor is big. It killed them early in the year.

He has mental issues. When he's played welll he's looked like a different player. You could see it last night. He was confident. But it wont last as someone else said. He's been bad a lot more than he's been great.

Ricky Rubio is lowkey a borderline all-star guard.

The Jazz have all these moneyball players. Ricky's +/- is insane compared to the numbers he puts up. Mitchell is barely more efficient (no rookie is efficient) than Ricky but Xiao Yao You can't shut up about how awful Ricky is when the Jazz are SO MUCH better with him in the lineup.

He's playing the long con troll game, there is no way a true Jazz fan believes the things he says.

We all know Ricky's faults, but his impact has been tremendous, career highs, game winners, outplaying elite competition at his position, sparking winning streaks, etc., and if you pay attention to the players off the court at all you can see that he is responsible for building a unified locker room.

Xiao is just salty because this season is exposing Hayward's value, they are virtually the same team, if not better, without that overrated bum, if you really want to start tearing down a player let's change the narrative instead of saying a bunch of things about Ricky that don't add up when you see the results
