It's only important if you can't handle a physical style of play. Even a lot of scrawny guys out there play physical... but I just think the added strength will give him more confidence than anything.

if you consider the difference between professional Barcelona basketball and professional Minneapolis basketball, in terms of its physicality and overall athleticism and skill, then yeah I'd say its one hell of a leap.


You are right. Because Barca is way better than the Wolves are. Quite a leap downwards in level for him.

I know what you're trying to do.

With that said, yes the Wolves are a terrible team, but that obviously isn't what I was saying.

The competition he'll face night in and night out will absolutely by more skilled, athletic, and physical, that what he faced in Europe.

Yes, but his teammates won't be scrubs like Juan Carlos Navarro and Boniface N'Dong.

Nash is a better shooter than Rubio.

No way he "bulks up" the guy doesn't have the frame for it. He can get stronger though. Stockton was not considered a big guard but he was strong.

It depends, is he going to guard points guards or slide over and check 2s a la Jason Kidd? He has to size to guard most shooting guards and it would give the Wolves a competitive advantage if they could defensively afford to play an Aaron Brooks or Terry type at shooting guard and have them switch on defense. I could also see him putting on weight in order to help himself finish inside, since that's been a problem for him in Europe and he's damn sure not scaring anyone with his jumper.

Thank you Captain Mother ****ing Obvious

The guy is arguably the greatest shooter out of any pg in Nba history. His 50/40/90's speak for themselve

First of all, no it won't. Not on a "night in, night out" basis. Plenty of NBA teams are worse than plenty of Euroleague teams.

Secondly, the Euroleague is far more physical than the NBA is. Obviously, you have no clue what you are talking about.
