NBA Playbook's Scouting Report on Ricky Rubio


Lots to like here. Just enough negativity to give it some credibility, but more than enough reason for optimism, including (and concluding):

Conclusion

The thing that everyone needs to remember is that when we were hearing about Rubio years ago, he was just 18, meaning that he is only 20 years old now.  Some of his biggest weaknesses, like shooting form and strength, are things he can develop as he ages.

Is Rubio going to be an all-star right off of the bat?  No.  However, he is going to have a productive season in Minnesota, and if he can be at least a threat scoring off of screens, that Love/Rubio pick and pop is going to be deadly.

 It's also worth noting that one of the greatest poor-outside-shooting point guards in history just won his first NBA championship at an age 17.5 years older than Rubio is now--so it seems that Rubio's success should be measured after a decade, rather than a year or two.

Oh, and since I never got the chance to say it here, "Congratulations!" go to David Kahn. As one of your many unrelenting detractors, you deserve credit for getting this done, and hanging around long enough to see it happen.
