    "Always Nice" rule, huh? Doesn't sound like any fun to me.

    Watching European ball is becoming fun again. NBA teams aren't just blindly pulling guys out of the leagues anymore. There's more developed talent over there than there's been in years.

    I think that Rubio can handle the speed of the NBA. He's a great team defender. With the "No Touch" rules now on the perimeter, you can't keep an ultra-quick guy in front of you anyway. That's why it's a point guard's league now. The best you van do is try and funnel a guy to help. Which is why we desperately need shot blockers on this team, btw.

    Everybody wants to compare Rubio to Nash. I just don't see it. When I watch Rubio, I see Jason Kidd. The difference is that Kidd was like a bullet up the court. Rubio's a bit more of a glider. Where a young Jason Kidd would blow past guys and dunk, Rubio likes to pull a Chauncey Billups hesitation move and drop a reverse lay up. I love watching Rubio play. He's a 8-10 assist guy in the NBA.

    Rubio playing is like Ricky rubio,not steve nash or jason kid. May become more similar to jason kidd.It´s a 19/20 years old boy,but he will be a though player like kidd,with high assist/steals level.
    I hope Ricky improve his basketball level this year,his first half of seasson was awesome playing in one elite team,but the second half playing in barça(my other favourite team with pistons) has been regular level,non consistent. It´s true he was his first seasson playing a lot of games,very important games,more pressure(in barcelona you only have a way,win and win,no tanking in top european team).
    I hope rubio plays great worldchampion and seasson,he must be with marc gasol and fernandez one cornerstone player of the future spanish squad.

    Yes, but another direction might be the question in asking, "are the decisions I am making...those that matter?"

    He does look leaner. He's been a little doughy the last few years.
