Every time I watch Ricky Rubio play I get the feeling that this kid was born to play under Mike D’Antoni. His playmaking ability is off the charts. No look dimes have become a staple for this baller. I’m astonished he received such bad reviews the last few years playing in Europe.
Check out this play from the 2012 NBA Rising Stars Challenge and explain to me how we don’t talk about this kid on a day-to-day basis? If only the draft went a little differently, Rubio would be owning New York like Jeremy Lin is right now.
Is there anyone out there with the creativity and dazzle of the young, former Euro guard? I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a plethora of these plays for the next 10-15 years!
