Magic can score too. Rubio can't consistently

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

Granted, I don't watch nearly as much Timberwolves games as I should, but from what I've seen Rubio is just a ball thief. If I am wrong on that, than I am wrong on that, no problem.

and FYI, I don't have any alt accounts, I found this website in January of 2013.

Must feel salty people like me more than you.

He can pass no doubt and he plays great defense.

But it's staggering how Rubio shoots a pathethic FG% (.354 this year, .356 for his career), while attempting so few shoots per game. Kinda similar to young J-Kidd.

if he develops his shooting, he be great. and even dish more assists if he draws some more defenders with some scoring threat.

Rubio's passing ability is awe-inspiring. It's reminiscent of a younger Steve Nash.

He is a very good rebounder for a PG. Got a triple double a few games ago.

His passing his obviously incredible and his D is very good as well. He is also first in the league in steals.

Rubio can't play defense, he can't shoot, can't pass.

Loves fat, cant jump, slow, cant create his own shot, can't defend.

Rubio is the best passer in the league. His feel for the game is unbelievable. He knows what you're going to do with the ball before you even know.

He's 2 steps ahead of everybody. it's a shame his shot can't go in consistantly. It does during practice-they say- but its broke as hell when the lights come on.

he's a magician with the ball and it's been a joy for him to architect the leagues best offense

Default Re: Rubio can really PASS the ball. Next Magic?

He's an amazing passer, great ball-handler also and can play D, but he's still far from a consistent/nice scorer and a reliable shooter. If he doesn't improve in those areas he can't be one of the very top pg's in the league.

As for next Magic, just no... Magic was considerably bigger, even a better passer, could run an offense better, was a really efficient scorer with his really good post-game and the way he could finish inside, really good rebounder also, plus he was never a great shooter by any means but he'd make teams pay if they gave him the same space as they do to a player like Ricky.

Rubio is a stud. Gotta fix that shooting percentage, but the passing ability and defense are elite. He can be another Rondo or Kidd. He's a better passer than Rondo though. Rondo has probably never gotten a "hockey assist" in his career. Rubio makes the offense flow right.

Wait until he converts 50% of his layups over a season before making ridiculous comparisons.
