Hes exceeding everyone's expectations right now. Not quite a star yet but not exactly a scrub either

I like Rubio I'm happy he's playing well, his game seems to be more suited for the NBA than International ball.

When you work hard you get results. I'm happy he is doing well, once his teammates know him better it's going to be even more amazing.
He has to continue working on his shot and his defense and he will do well. Oh, and his english too :laughing:

Playing well right now, would like to see what happens once teams adjust to him. I remember Brandon Jennings was tearing it up rookie year and then teams figured out how to contain him after a month or so.

I was right all along. I said it will take about 4-5 years before he becomes a decent NBA player. He was terrible during the 08 Olympics

I was always a bit hesitant about how he would adjust to the NBA game, but it seems to be an even better fit for him. His style is really fun to watch, and I hope he continues to improve.

Well yeah he was the backup for Navarro or Calderon if I'm not mistaken (the Spaniards here will have to confirm this). He wasn't terrible, but he still wasn't ready for the NBA.

On NBA gametime he said he feels more comfortable playing NBA style basketball because it's more up tempo, less physical, and less zone defenses than in Europe.

There is one reason why this guy will make it in this league. Without scoring this guy has a big effect on the game. He can learn to shoot later in his career ala Jason Kidd. He makes all the right passes and I am sure his teammates love him.

He always has his head up while dribbling which is so important for a point guard.
"The way Steve is as a teammate, the way he sets the tone, the way the team kind of takes on his persona. As a coach, that's the best thing in the world. It's easy to coach. He's taking care of the chemistry. You just coach."

So he's not playing 'decently' right now?

I said it will take him 4-5 years to make the NBA and it did. Where he goes from here who knows. If he keeps this up and lots of Spanish votes come in we might see him starting next to Kobe in the All star game
