Default What good is Ricky Rubio if he has no shot

The only reason white people survive in the NBA is because they can shoot, Bird, Nash, Nowitzki, Kerr, Kapono..... If Ricky only has average shooting, how can he survive in the NBA? I just don't see what specialty he has.

I wish there was a way to anti-rep someone. The argument being made by the OP is so absurd and borderline offensive that I'm not even going to bother tearing it to shreds (I'm sure that someone else will if the thread isn't deleted immediately).

The OP is just exhibiting his ignorance of not only basketball, but also just in general. Saying the only reason White players like Bird, Nash, and Nowitzki 'survive' is because they can shoot is like saying the only reason Black players like Jordan, Vince Carter, and Lebron James survive is because they can dunk.

A healthy Manu Ginobli, a white player, is one of the best athletic slashers in the league. What's the explanation for that? So misguided it's almost comical.
