Ricky Rubio is overrated.
You're telling me that a point guard that can't shoot, can't defend, can't get to the free throw line, has a SLOW release, isn't explosive, isn't very athletic, can't finish in the paint, and isn't strong.. You're telling me he's going to be the next nba star? Jason Kidd became a star later in his career despite the fact that he couldn't shoot, but he has always had a decently fast release, he's been a good 1 on 1 defender, pretty strong, and maybe the best rebounding point guard of all time.. You compare him to Steve Nash? He shoots 76% from the free throw line and shoots about 4 FGs a game.. Looking at what he's good at, his career averages will be 8ppg and 12apg.. A good passer but after seeing Brandon Jennings' passing ability, will Ricky Rubio ever be marked as the best passer of the 2009 draft?
A career average of 12ast per game will put you in the Hall of Fame.
Good point but most players don't care about a H.o.F. award if they don't win a championship. That just puts them in the wrong list.
And I don't mean a career average of 12 assists.. I was incorrect, I meant a best season average of 12apg, his career will be somewhere near 7.5ish which isn't bad but he isn't the next Steve Nash
Can't defend? Rubio's a great defender.
Slow? He's very quick for a 6-foot-5 guard.
Can't finish in the paint? Have you seen this guy?
RUBIO IS A PUNK....HE AINT EVEN THE L....WHEN HE IS IN THE L AND IS GETTING ABUSED ON A NIGHTLY BASIS BY DUDES LIKE CP3 TYREKE DERON ETC...JUST REMEMBER DUDE IS A PUNK...hope he fails
Why do you think he didn't want to come to the NBA? He's scared.. His dad is a billionaire, do you really think it's about money? Of course not.. He's making what 6m over there and he'll make about 4m over here.. 2m difference but his dad is a damn billionaire.. It's obviously not about money.
Since we're already on this site, check out his profile and check his weaknesses.. Read em and weep.
Weaknesses: Has good speed but lacks the great explosiveness that top tier point guards in the league possses … He is forced to shoot high amount of attempts in the paint because his marginal leaping ability makes it difficult for him to finish around the basket … Heavily depends on the pick and roll to create his opportunities and does not show a great ability to break down defenders in ISO situations … Has gotten better at taking what’s open, but his pass first mentality still gets him into trouble as he passes up open shots … His jumper is still not a finished product by any means … Because it takes him a bit to get his feet set, and his release point is fairly low he still looks like a set shooter … Has battled some injuries over the last year, which raises the question of durability and whether he will be able to handle the rigors of an 82 game season … His game has been up and down this season after coming back from his injury (Had a better overall season last year) … His performance on the international scene does not guarantee his game will translate well to the NBA … Is also a bit of a risk because of his high buyout and because he has hinted at staying overseas if he doesn’t go to the right team …
Why would you hope failure on someone you don't even know bro? You are the one that sounds like a punk.
Damn, Ricky, papa just called you out, man!
He'll respond soon, don't you worry....
Something tells me that Rubio read papa's post, and is now crying in a corner somewhere holding his knees...
nah bro... what are we in california? surf city? you obviously aint from there seeing how gotta marqueete logo as ur pp.....im guessing ur from wisconsin..so no homie talk like a wisconsin peron not a surfer, bra....so that would make you a punk my friend
DanEboy has joined Rubio in the corner. At least they have each other. Their bodies caressing each other, they realize the embrace of another man is the only solace in their pain. Then things start heating up...
I already like this topic. Romance, drama, funny gifs... It has everything!!!
Actually I am from Chicago. That logo is a school I attended, something you should check out sometime. Ok Spicoli?
Google defines "Spicoli" as a healthy combination of spinach and broccoli...
Oh, I get it! LOL
^ that pic is enormous
Now I'm in the corner... Ricky, your hair is so soft...
Where did you get those clothes? At the toilet store?
butidonthavemoney gets sent to his room, but he can't sleep because his uncle is cursing loudly at the sweet tunes of his next-door neighbor, Tay Zonday:
BTW: He isn't really dead; a video of him came out in 2008.
butidonthavemoney decided to run away with his newfound love, Ricky Rubio. His uncle was just too loud and annoying.
"Where should we go?" butidonthavemoney asked Ricky Rubio.
"I have no idea." Rubio responded. "I can't go back to basketball, papa said so. We could always go live with my stalker back in the states. He's kind of creepy though. He keeps sending me cut-up roses and baby doll heads..."
"What's his name?"
i love when these forums go off topic. what does being from wisconsin or california have to do with the way u talk? im from houston, does that mean i should talk chopped & screw screwed chopped chop?
back onto topic
Rubio is overrated,
Magic Johnson 20ppg?Pistol Pete (a shooting guard)?
Rajon Rondo at best, he needs superstars to make him look good and he tries 2 hard 2 be flashy instead of flowing with the game
you may now resume your avoidance of the topic
Hi! My name is Disrespect_Me! I like to wear man-shirts! Watch me skateboard!
Rubio is totally overrated. The NBA has some strange fixation on him. He will be a very good NBA player, but he is far from what he is hyped to be (messiah of basketball). His shooting is much better now than it was. So he should be OK with that. But he's very overrated nonetheless. He reminds me of Nikos Zisis. Zisis was unreal as a young player, but with each year he got worse compared to his peers. I think this is what might happen to Rubio also.
