View Full Version : The I was wrong Bout Rubio Thread

I think its worth giving people the chance to hop on the bandwaggon if they made ridiculous stances out of not having seen him play enough before.

Ill start.

i was wrong bout rubio, i thought he would INDEED have trouble scoring the ball and shooting, though he would make lik 6 ppg in 30% fg in his rookie year and like 10 ppg in his prime.

Hes doing 10 ppg on 50% right of the bat so he may be able to develop into a 14-17 ppg scorer.

He also has more length and is a better defender imo.

I definitely was wrong about Rubio. I thought his lack of a jumper would have gotten him exposed. Especially because while Rondo for instance wasn't good as a jumper, he still had the speed to get by people. So, we'll see.

However, I hate to agree with Greetard as well; it has only been 12 games. Remember the last time people got excited about a pg by the name of Brandon Jennings. He has kind of sucked since...

I know as a Nets fan I've heard a lot of comparisons in our forum to Kobe Bryant, I know that he won't be like that but just looking at efficiency in scoring he's ahead of where Kobe was as a rookie so far and if he continues his pace he'd have a better rookie year than Kobe.

neither you nor I know his future. But as a Wolves fan, we are very excited about him, as we should be. I have been around basketball for 25+ years, and he may be the most gifted passer I have seen. The rest of his game is very good, jacked shot (he will regress percentage wise, I just can't see how he doesn't), and he is beyond active on defense. No way he isn't at least a top 10 PG thru his prime. But its too much to expect, and especially too much to predict, him joining the top 10 PG's to ever play.

Nobody knows his future, but there's more chances of him becoming an average PG than him becoming a top 5 PG of all time like some people suggest.

I understand you're excitement, I was growing up being able to watch Jason Kidd in his prime and that was the greatest player I've ever seen in person and which is why I'm a little biased towards Kidd and which is why you can tell I shut down most ideas of Rubio becoming Jason Kidd.

His shooting #s are going to go down and his defense is OK, not great. (Like I said, I don't think he'll ever be Kidd defensively).

He'll be a top 10 PG throughout his prime, but people are saying he's top 10 now. It's stuff like that which generates the hate as him.

For the people saying "it's 10 games" or "wolves are still losing..." here is my response.

The Wolves have played the Heat, Thunder, Mavs, and Bulls. Rubio has not only held his own vs the star PG's of this league, he has shined. The Heat put Lebron on Rubio to try to hold him back at one point....

Do you expect any team in the NBA to have a winning record when they play that kind of competition? Easier games are to come, wins are to come, and tripple doubles from Rubio are to come.

Actually I see nothing wrong with either statements. Wolves have already lost to winnable teams. And it has been 10 games...

Shine or Flashy moves? Thats a good question. 11 and 8 is a bit better than most expected, but thats 10 games.

EDIT: Actually 11 and 8 is a LOT better than what most expected. I expected 8 and 8 tbh, but I heard some 4 and 4s.

his logic seemed fine, basically he knew that Rubio coming over was not going to happen for a year or two, and we needed a PG badly. He picked the wrong one for sure. I was begging for DeRozan.

Thats some ellite company, if you try to do a lot of things you will get many turnovers.

Does he REALLY need to get them down?

yes Crooner, he needs to. And they will drop, because he will learn certain passes are not worth the risk, and his teammates have already started watching him at all times so they don't miss a rocket fired at their face.

This year isn't going to be a good one for TO for every player. Lack of working out with the team before season is hurting PGs a lot.

i was already in the rubio bandwagon like 5 years ago when he was a young teenager playing profesional basketball and i really wanted him to play already when the wolves drafted him a couple years back and he is my 2nd favorite point guard right now behind steve nash.

is Rubio as good as some homers make him out to be?? no -.- .. BUT!!! ill admit i was wrong.. when he came i was expecting an average of like 6ppg, 6apg ,3rpg he has exceeded my expectations by alot.. that being said i dont like the compairisons to Nash because he doesnt looks like he will ever be close to the shooter Nash was/is. still im impressed :/

Why does Nash keep being brought up in this thread? Nobody is claiming Rubio is better at this point or any point in his future than Nash.

The fact that the name "Nash" is being brought up in this thread should speak volume enough...
