    Default Rubio making it look easy



    22 sec (assist to love for 3), 30 sec (drive to basket (first points in the NBA), 1 min 42 sec (sweet no look behind the back pass for 3pter), 1 min 52 sec (steal), 2:03 (alley-oop to williams.)

    On the night 6 points, 1-4GH, 4-4FT, 0-1 3PT, 6/2 RB (more than Bargnani :P), 7 assists, 1TO and 2 steal in 24 min.

    I know this is just a preseason game but it's still impressive. Should be interesting to see what he can bring this season.

    BTW Love is still on fire, 4/7 from 3 and 15/3 rebounds O_O

    edit:

    More Angles of the alley-oop

    Rubio looked great! Twolves have some talent.

    How about Jimmer last night. 21 points and 4 assists.

    meh Rubio was ok. I've never been a fan of Jimmer he's a chucker, they were sagging off of him the whole game.

    Someone should put up a poll for ROY. It's wide open. Jimmer will be in the running.

    And Luke Ridnour is the white Andre Miller.
    Those pure distribution PGs never get the props they deserve.

    I'd say Rubio is a little more flashy than those guys though.
    Ala Steve Nash.

    Looked like Nash to me. Minnesota fans are in for an exciting year. They deserve it.

    Rubio appears to have Steve Nash like court vision. It;s like their brain has the ability to visulize the fast pace of the NBA but be able to process and make the right pass or action in real time.

    As for Jimmer he is a winner and he may surprise a few people. However before too long around he may find himself struggeling to get his shot off. The question is will have the IQ to make adjustments? Only tme will tell.

    that's a possibility, but he's got such range on his shot, it puts defenses in awkward situations. as a defense, you don't want to have to defend a guy 30-ft from the hoop all the time, it screws up rotations & help assignments. because jimmer is a threat from that distance, you have to honour the shot & play him tight pretty much from half-court & in...which should lead to easier pentration for 'reke, easier post-ups for cousins, and easier PnR's in general (when he - jimmer - is off the ball). then, when defenses are forced to adjust & pack it in, you've got him out there to make them pay. they could also set up some nice PnR action with him as the ball-handler...if his man goes under the screen, he pops the 3, if he goes over (and the pickers man chases jimmer), the picker can slip the screen & cut hard.

    also - he's a better athlete than he's given credit for, and gets a significant amount of lift on his jumper...meaning he'll more than likely be able to get his shot off even when being guarded fairly tightly.

    that being said...i have no idea what his impact will be. i assume he'll have a decent & lengthy career, but beyond that???
    TRUE LOVE - Sometimes you know it the instant you see it across the bar.

    Man, I wish they could have worked something out for this guy. DeRozan or Bargnani would have been on the table if I was talking.

    yes... a lot of people seem to forget that all of our players haven't played ball at all over the summer because of the lockout, cept maybe 1 or 2 charity games. Its almost impossible to regress, last year he was playing great, this year is mainly cause of the change in coaches and short training camp. Last year he was told to score, this year he's told to defend. Once he gains is confidence back he'll be all good. I don't want to turn this into a DeRozan thread so if you want to discuss this go to everything raptors.

    I think Rubio is going to be a better player and the PG position is more important.

    i'd much rather draft a pg like kabongo. Rubio idk he seems like a younger Calderon, maybe a bit better with all star potential but not a game changer or franchise player
