Default An O.J. Mayo/Ricky Rubio Backcourt

With the Grizzlies getting the #2 Pick. It is obvious they will pick 18 year old Ricky Rubio you can't pass on a talent like that. Now what they do with him is the question.

If they decide to keep him and trade Mike Conley just how good will the Next "Pistol Pete" Ricky Rubio and the Next "Kobe" O.J. Mayo be together?

I think they will work really well together not to mention Rubio has Gasol who he is familiar with, and Rudy Gay who he can throw oops all day to.

* Waits for lilojmayo to come back to ISH and say they will be the greatest backcourt ever*

Ricky IS NOT the next Pistol Pete, watch some games before making these kind of statements.

(And Mayo isn't the new Kobe either)

I didn't say they were. That is what a lot of people say. I am just stating a consensus opinion.

Good start for the future. Conley was playing pretty good after they got the new coach tho(Wasn't he averaging like 14\6 or something along those lines? could be way off here).

Didn't Rubio say he wouldn't play for Memphis also.

Either way if they get Rubio it looks pretty decent on paper, if he actually turns out like he's been hyped to.

You can't form your own opinion?

I don't watch them enough to make an opinion. They are both really young also and need a couple more years like 5 to develope. I can tell you what watching their youtube mixes Rubio has some Pistol Pete likemoves, just like Mayo has some Kobe likemoves.
