Spanish ACB League Defensive Player of the Year: (2009)
So can you remind me how many international superstars rely on athleticism what so ever? It's not a focus overseas. They polish their offensive games they don't just try to dunk on people
It doesn't matter whether international players rely on athleticism or not. What's important is whether Rubio can cut in in the real league, where athleticism is a major factor, especially at the guard position.
Lots of people have doubts, myself included, but we'll see if he ever decides to come over here.
Hey guys, John wall missed a jumpshot hes not fit for the nba.
No kidding. It's also about as casual a workout as you'll ever see. I saw an interview with him immediately after the workout a few days ago, and the kid wasn't even sweating. In the middle of the workout he stopped and shared a few laughs with the coach and GM. The workout itself was basically a dog and pony show (the Wizards are obviously going to pick him, so the workout was a mere formality), and it's likely that the Wizards' brass told him above all else, not to injure himself.
How anyone can extrapolate the belief that he is overrated from that farce of a workout is beyond me. If you've analyzed his game during his time with the Wildcats, and you think that he is overhyped, that's one thing (and perfectly legitimate), but to make that claim based on this workout is ludicrous.
