I meant quickness, excuse my English.

That said, I think we can all agree the most important athletic attribute for a player depends on his position.

He might not jump all that high, but he is certainly athletic. He has very fast feet and he changes directions lightning fast. I have no doubt he is going to be a great NBA player someday.

Steve Nash cant jump for **** and he won back to back MVP's

Rubio plays in Europe. No one in Europe plays defense, nor is athletic.

Rubio coming to the NBA is just going to blow everybody's mind when he throws the generalizations out the door.

I am curious on what Brandon Jennings will test in the Pre Draft Max Vertical. He could relive Nate Robinson/Michael Jordan/Vince Carters 43.5 in vertical.

Be able to throw it down easily. Rubio can barely dunk from a running start.
