Default Rubio calls the NBA "a lot easier"

When asked post game last night after the win over the Mavs about how the adjustment is going with transferring to the NBA style and how he has been doing so well Rubio stated that the NBA is "easier" since there is so much more space for him, also that the zone and defensive 3 make is easy for him. You know, the things I've been posted here for years while people here drool over all of the overrated point guards in the league. Apparently Rondo, Rose and Westbrook are better than Isaiah Thomas according to many of the children posting on this board.

He also added that basketball is still just basketball and he knows the game.

Not really a fan of Rudy but within 4 games I can already tell why he's not flourishing. He's just not doing well with reduced roles. I'd guess that over in Europe he had a bigger role and that's why he succeeded so much. Over in the NBA teams aren't obviously going to give him that type of role because his talent doesn't really dictate it. Thus he get's relegated to being a spot up shooter.

The few possessions that he gets\attempts to showcase his game he's doesn't suck at all. Can make plays for others, make plays off the dribble. Just generally used at a spot up guy.

Considering his usage\shot attempts\minutes? He's basically your average role player off the bench.

He said it's easier because he has more space.. The Nba lanes are wider..

Simple.

Nothing to see here.

LOL @ it being nothing to see. He said the zone defenses are a part of it and the defensive 3 rule as well. He didn't mentioned the lack of a handcheck, but that's already beyond debate that it's easier for PG's today. I'd like to see how JJ Barea would fare in the mid 90's NBA. Probably he a towel and ball boy.

Yeah the biggest problem with Ruby in Portland was he was forced into a spot up shooter. Sit outside and wait to shoot the 3 as a last option. The team already have Roy, Matthews, Miller. Rudy is made to have the ball in his hands and create. Similar to what you see Manu do. Another thing is Rudy's lack of commitment to the NBA. Seems like almost every year he is finding his way to play back home again.

Yes because I am making up this entire topic. lol

You don't believe me? Am I the only person with income here that allows me to watch NBA TV? It's a very cool channel, I have it on my FIOS package. I'll be watching the Mavs and Thunder play in a few minutes. Earlier today I saw Kevin Johnson get bizzy on Jordans Bulls in the NBA Finals. Get the channel dammit!
