He's supposedly a Jason Kidd type guard, and a pure point guard-back in the day PGs weren't supposed to shoot and Ricky is that type of guard apparently. Yeh he showed poise and played well vs the US but I still don't buy him as being any better than Brandon Jennings or Jru Holliday.

It would be cool if in the NBA he gets to just have Ricky on the back of his shirt like he does for spain>

Just like Rudy Fernandez should be able to have Rudy on the back of his jersey.

Sergio Rodriguez is another, Ricky Rubio's game is just like Sergio only better defense and Ricky is way bigger too.

Yeah, and Steve Nash is Canadian, not white. Rubio is white, just like Pau Gasol is white even though he's from Spain.

It can be fixed. Jose Calderon had a horrendous shot his first year in the league, but he rebuilt it, and is now one of the better shooters in the game.

05-06: 42% FG
06-07: 52% FG
07-08: 51% FG


There was a story on ESPN last year about Calderon rebuilding his shot:

""His secret?

A big old rubber band.

In discussing Calderon's shooting prowess beforehand, Triano explained how the Raptors were so frustrated three years ago by Calderon's poor shooting stroke -- his flaw was that he was flaring his right elbow out -- that one day Triano, then an assistant to Sam Mitchell, grabbed a long rubber band that players use for leg stretching exercises, attached it to Calderon's forearms just below the elbow and told him to try shooting that way, which kept Calderon's elbow tucked at his side.

The trick was so successful, Calderon used it over the summer when working on his shot (he said he also would position himself one inch from a wall on his right side and practice that way, knowing that if he flared his elbow out he'd scrape it against a cinder block surface).

"It was to help concentrate, but you could not do more than 10 shots in a row with the rubber band because it hurt too much," Calderon said. "But I'd keep shooting without the band, and I'd keep shooting the same way.""

That's pretty interesting. I could see Rubio making a similar improvement, too, since he seems pretty comitted to learning the fundamentals of the game. I think it's also important for people to take into consideration that he's only 18 or 19, an age when only the best shooters have knockdown jump shots.

never said he was white. It was a question of a PG w/ no jumper, what good is he?

The question was about white people with no jumper, not PGs.

Not really a big deal, I just thought that you were one of the idiots on here that thinks if someone's skin is white that they're white.
