Rubio should be untouchable!

I've recently seen posts about acquiring current All-Star caliber players by dangling Ricky Rubio. I've vacillated between thinking dealing Rubio for a player like Westbrook COULD be a good idea to thinking theres no way we should part with him. But after watching the first three games of the season I can't imagine us letting him go for anything short of LeBron. Rubio is just so impressive, and while he's not a star yet it's difficult to imagine that he isn't a star in the making. True, he makes risky passes from time to time but the offense just runs so smoothly with him at the helm. He controls the pace of the game very well, has such great court vision, can split double teams and get into the lane by changing his speeds and is in control at all times. In those respects he's just like Steve Nash AND HE JUST TURNED 21.

Granted, there are holes in his game that make him less than Steve Nash, but nothing he can't develop with time and effort. If he can develop into a respectable three-point shooter and can work on a floater in the lane, he will be close to unstoppable. He can get into the lane at will but right now he's looking to make a pass instead of score. Developing a floater would force defenders to respect him in the paint and help create passing lanes. All in all, I guess I'm not breaking new ground, but I just can't imagine ANY realistic deal involving Rubio that makes sense, and seeing him this season has just confirmed that he is on the verge of becoming a true STUD.
