Default Ricky Rubio looking to bulk up

Ricky Rubio knows that physical NBA point guards can pound into him if he remains a skinny kid, so he's looking to bulk up.

Read this quick item: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=8088

How important is strength when you're an NBA point guard?

Not very, I'd imagine. Bulk even less so.

Not as important as big men, but you still need it. It's a physically demanding game.

Obvious decision.

That's like a homeless person looking to get money.

It's very important for a PG.

The way these guys drive today, Westbrook, Rose, Evans, Paul, Williams etc. they all bump you on the way to the rim.

His listed weight is 190, pretty average for a point. Only stocky point guards like Deron Williams and Kidd weigh more.

Weight doesn't matter at all. Payton and Stockton were some of the scrawniest guys in the league.

I wouldn't really call the move from Barcelona to Minnesota a "leap".

If you're ONLY considering the size, attractiveness, and culture, of the city.... then no, Barcelona to Minnesota is not a leap.

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.

FYI, this is a fking basketball message board.

if you dont like a basketball opinion, you're in the wrong place.

if you think he's guaranteed star, i can use your same stupid logic as being an ignorant troll because that's just retarded.

1.) I'm aware this is a basketball message board... and believe me I can handle people with actual basketball opinions. If you want to go there, my "basketball opinion" that your basketball opinions are ignorant are as just and relevant as yours.

2.) Saying someone is a bust before they play a single NBA game is simply unfounded. Making unbased claims.... ESPECIALLY without any kind of additional insight or explanation.... like you made is one of two things: ignorance, or trolling.

3.) Did I say he would be a guaranteed star?? I don't think so.

Anything else you would like to pull out of your ass and smear all over a reply post??
