Default Rubio can really PASS the ball. Next Magic?

Although his stats are not as impressive as "stars" PG, but Rubio can really pass the damn ball. He just gotta sharpen his jumper then he will be the next Magic.

Maybe he has to also grow 4-5 inches and 50-80 lbs first and dominate almost all other positions.... :)

There's no doubt he's a great passer, but the problem is that he's one of the worst scorers in the league, which really limits his effectiveness.

If he could get his shooting numbers up to 42%+ then defenders would need to start guarding him more closely, which would open up his teammates and make his passing even more efficient.

This is one of the main advantages that Nash always had, his shooting is so deadly that you can't possible leave him open.

I can't help but think that he is one of the best point guards in the league regardless of raw stats (I felt the same about Rondo before he broke out). He's got something that most of them lack - pure court vision and understanding of the game. If he ever decides to get himself a reliable jumpshot, he instantly becomes an elite player.

typical ISHer,
never watch the game,
yet judge a player based on boxscore and stereotype (that white people = unathletic? = cant defend shit?)
he is their best defender

I think it's also because he reminds people of Nash, but he's closer to Kidd, Rondo, and Stockton (not that he's as good as those guys)

Actually no. Rubio is really good at defense.

Stop repping yourself with so many accounts because a ret@rd like you wouldn't have so many green bars. Especially April 2013..

Of the three, I think the Stockton comparison is the closest in terms of style, but obviously he is nowhere near as good.

I'd go with Rondo without the rebounding.

The only thing that he might have in common with Magic is AIDS.

Don't let this magic Wolves moment fool you, he's nothing more than an average PG.
