Only until he works out we'll get to see how good or bad of an athlete he is.

Judging off of Youtube isnt good, just like those who said Hansbrough was weak and not an athlete.

I see a lot of Andre Miller in the kid with better defense. His defense is superb. He is great at playing the lanes and decent on ball due to his speed.

To adam, he is really quick. NBA quick. On a few plays he gave Paul trouble due to his instincts and playing the lanes. Particularly on an out of bounds play, where he consecutively knocked the ball out of bounds twice, mainly due to his speed.

Something people forget all the time about his defense, he's probably one of the best players at stealing the ball you've seen.

yeah, stevie's D sucks but who doesnt need a HOF player?? don't underrate the guy.. Rubio will be better defensively but we can only hope he'll ever be Stevie's level overall

Are you serious that you value combine results over in-game results when judging athleticsm? I guess we'll have to make a note that you consider Andrew Bogut to be quicker than Monta Ellis then, right?

Why did he sign that contract in the first place...he must have known he was going to the NBA sooner or later.

Says you after looking at him, but thats not the whole story.

Kevin Durant was not the fastest nor strongest prospect coming out in 07', doesn't mean he doesnt know his limitations as a player and excels on what he does best.


Rubio is 18, and hes already experienced and well respected as a player in the ACB,the 2nd strongest basketball league after the NBA.

The potential is very high for the kid.

Nope he is.

Hes been only appearing to talk about Rubio for the past few months, only saw a 10 minute Youtube video and has already made judgements.

Rubio needs to get stronger and work on his jumper if he wants to be be a top quailty guard. He has the size as he is what? 6'3, 6'4? not exactly small.
