Hate to be a homer here but Rose has actually been a great defender so far this year. He really worked on his D.

Bradley is an amazing defender on the ball, but you can't compare him with Rubio just because of the playing time that they have.

I could see Rubio in the 2nd All Defensive Team.

Rubio was marvelous defensively when they played team USA years back. Rubio is going to be an all league defender year in and year out.

actually, in his low points in spain, i heard that guys were going right at him, seeing him as a weak link defensively.

i dont think his defense was a lock to be good in the nba.

He was DPOY in the spanish league (07/08), led the league in steals in 06/07 and I think he was always top 5. The problem is that in the USA any European player is considered a defensive liability until he proves otherwise (IF he does).
