Unlike most of you hoops junkies, getting up at 6am in the summer to watch the Redeem Team destroy the world, in Beijing China 2008 Olympics wasn't my flow.
Besides the common knowledge NBA Players playing for their respective countries (Yao Ming, Pau Gasol, and others), who did I really want to watch play? I though maybe if Gilbert Arenas and Paul Pierce were natives of China, it would've been worth the while to watch a 6am game, but I can wait on watching Carlos Arroyo.
Why bring this up? Hey, I spent this morning looking around the web seeing what's going on, and I came across something that said "Rick Rubio isn't sure if he will come to he nba this season."
Now, like I said Rick Rubio didn't really bring any images of anything to my mind. I mean, other then a slam magazine cover and some people saying he's the next jason kidd (I prefer chris paul), why even care? Well I got into my international databases and got the youtube flowing. Reading two nice articles and checking the videos, either I'm a idiot of I'm not understanding why he isn't being talked about as the #1 pick in the NBA Draft?
Rubio may end up being the #2-4 picks in the nba draft, just based upon him flinching on actually coming to the nba this season. "Point Guards are born not made", is a common phrase people like to say. Great Point guards find the open man in a variety of ways.. behind the back, between the legs, underhand over hand, eyes closed..these guys are the elite of the elite. Plus, he wins games and can do it without the flash. You gotta love rubio, plays the game the right way and entertains.
Rick Rubio isnt Jason "White Chocolate" Williams, or any of these other tricky pg, who's tricks work once in a blue. Check his highlights, and don't be bias, the kids flat out special. Oh yeah, he's 18yrs old.lol
