Default Ricky Rubio

anyone else heard of him? 6'4 180Lbs. Kid is great. he'll just be 18 this year.

there was one game against Russia where he made 51pts 24rebs 12assts. (which i thought might a mistake but... i don't know)

he's a handful of talent.. but he'll have a problem containing the guards in the NBA.

here's a mix.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqLGzkhRHN8

not really, he's already one of the best perimeter defenders in europe at age of 17. he's got inhuman lateral quickness, wickedly quick hands and great natural defensive instincts. he led the euroleague in steals last year and regularly guarded opponent's biggest perimeter threats. he'll need to gain some pounds, but he has all the tools to become the lockdown defender even at nba level.

right now his biggest weakness apart from lack of muscle mass is outside shooting.

His outside shooting has really improved this season. I mean, he's still no sniper, but his 3pt.% was a rather poor 28% during last season's spanish ACB while he's currently shooting a pretty good 36%.

Bring it back to the main forum! I would love to have Ricky Rubio as Miller's understudy. Kid even makes the game fun to watch with all his trick moves.

Rubio belongs in this forum,where people know about his game.I mean what a question,"does anybody know of him?"He is a great defender and a very clever player,the two things which are most normally absent in kids that young.He has been playing in the ACB since he was 14!
Doubletech you should watch more international basketball,we are not letting anybody down.
