apparently a lot of clubs think very very highly of Rubio.
He is already NBA-caliber defender and passer. All he has to work on is his outside shooting, which is comparatively easy. He has more experience than just about any kid in this draft, against better competition.
There is a reason Minny has been begging him to sign-up. There is a reason that clubs have approached Minny about varying trade scenarios.
Having said that, I think Irving will be a superstar. Rubio will be a starter, but not a superstar. jmo.
I'll just put it like this... If the Cavs traded EITHER of their lottery picks for the rights to Rubio, I just might have to find a different team to root for. I just don't see it.
But he is a nice 2nd option.
Melo is way better than Beasley,probably better than Beasley will ever be.
Same thing people said about Zach Randoplh.
No $hit Sherlock. I didn't even say Beasley > Melo.
But don't give me that BS statement. Beasley is still learning how to be a everyday SF, as well as being a first option.
"Beasley should watch (Miami star) LeBron James(notes)," Artest said. "Beasley's actually a better shooter than LeBron, but the smarts are not there. He's talking so much trash instead of worrying about the game. He needs to become a winner." [...]
Artest said Beasley needs to learn another move on the court.
"He's so athletic and quick and strong," he said. "But eventually somebody's going to catch on to it."
