Rubio is EASILY considered the greatest European PG prospect of all time.

Everyone knew Sabas was top 5 player in the world, but I don't know if 'prospect' is the right word considering we all knew he wasn't leaving the USSR.

This post is laughable.

Here's a scouting report from a Lithuanian friend of mine who has seen him a lot more, in games not practice:

I don't see anything similar at all between him and Dirk. I would say more like a taller Troy Murphy. More talented probably than Murphy though. But I just mean more that playing style. He doesn't play like Dirk at all.

actually his best comparison is probably Bargnani and some flavour of Pau Gasol mixed in...he's got a range of italian and some nice clever moves in the post - Murphy is primarily a jumpshooter, Motiejunas doesn't back away from post play though

True, but he plays more that way like Murphy, being more athletic than guys like Dirk, Pau, Bargnani. But the Dirk comparison is stupid. He doesn't play like Dirk.
