The question is which college PG would you draft ahead of Rubio? Flynn? Lawson? Maynor? Evans? Teague? Additionally, Rubio has played with grown men in Liga ACB in Spain rather than wasting his time dropping 30 against Cleveland State, Liberty, and Wyoming. Most importantly, Rubio didn’t have to learn the game of basketball from “great leaders” like Pitino and Cal.
That’s actually not the question, since I didn’t compare Rubio to any of those guys, or say that he was picked too early. There is nothing that says that every NBA draft has a transformational point guard. So just because I say that Rubio might not be one doesn’t mean that I think some other guy is. The real question is, will Rubio be destined for stardom. My answer, I hope he is, but I’m not as convinced as those that are chugging the media Kool-Aid by the gallon like you are.
Yes, he competed with and against players that are older than him, but he didn’t play that well against them. And I guarantee that Liberty and Wyoming could beat up on some of the teams in that league like ViveMenorca (the club of FrÃ©dÃ©ric Weis) and CAI Zaragoza. So is it really that impressive? Only to you and Fran Fraschilla.
Right, because Cal and Pitino are the only coaches in the NCAA. I thought I heard something about a few guys named Williams some dude named Self and another gent named Krzyzewski. I bet Rubio could’ve gotten onto one of those teams if he wanted to. But I don’t fault him for staying home and making some $. I’m just not sure it’s made him into an NBA star.
Is Tebow Good for thet NFL?
