I said it will take him 4-5 years to make the NBA and it did.

He could've came in earlier he was just being a [expletive].

It was because he wasnt good enough for thr nba last 4years. He matured, he got bigger, stronger, started adding more skills to his game and hes a legit player now. Teams are gonna adjust him and hes gonna face some adversity, I hope hes ready to play through that

Look at he alley-op he throws to Randolph at 4:03 in the video. He sees that play way ahead of everyone else.
The Lakers FO knows more than you. Sorry.

Ricky Rubio recorded 14 assists in the Timberwolves' 93-72 victory at Washington. It was Rubio's eighth NBA game, and his assist total tied the all-time single-game high that early in a player's career. Three other players posted 14 assists in one of their first eight games, but not the players you're probably expecting. They were Ernie DiGregorio of the Buffalo Braves in his NBA debut in 1973, Bryan Warrick of the Washington Bullets in 1982, and Greg Grant of the Suns in 1989.

Oscar Robertson first posted as many as 14 assists in the 20th game of his NBA career. Neither Magic Johnson nor John Stockton tallied 14 assists in one game until early in their second season in the NBA (Magic in his 80th game, Stockton in his 86th).

he got drafted in 09 tho

If he keeps this up he might win the rookie of the year, 3rd rookie from the 2009 class to win it

Magic Johnson's view on Rubio

Magic said, and I quote, "You're going to be wrong. Listen to me on this kid. He'll be better in the NBA than he is in Europe because our guys are more athletic and they run to the rim. In Europe, guys don't really run the break; they fan out around the 3-point line, they pump-fake, they look to score in other ways. Our guys are going to see a dude who can pass it like Rubio and run like hell to the rim. Trust me."


"There's a difference," Magic said by way of explanation, "between making a pass to somebody and creating a shot for a guy. Rubio creates a shot. He's got instincts, great instincts."

Magic Johnson's view on Rubio

Great insight from arguably the greatest PG of all-time on a potential future star in this league for many years to come.

Yea that was great insight by Magic he should stick to only analyzing PG's though cause his overall team basketball analysis is horrible imo

Lost by 2 to the Hawks, but he dropped 18 with 12 assists & 5 steals. Not bad.

AND he made a clutch 3 to tie the game late. Rubio can make the big shots I know it.

Well he's been been playing pro ball since he was 14. These games are nothing new to the guy.

he has more media attention, pretty hyped up and is actually producing.. either it's a tie between him or irving or he wins. would love for minnesota to actually make the playoffs.
