I think its amazing how everyone is pulling for their team to draft Rubio. I personally feel like atleast 80% of fans who want their GM to draft him have NEVER seen him play. Obviously I haven't seen him in person, but has anyone seen a youtube video on him? His shot is ugly and he zig-zags through the European talent (which there is no chance of him doing in the NBA). Even Jennings who has played in Europe with him says hes a bust and all he can do is pass the ball well, which isn't enough to be a star in the NBA. The hype is understandable because he has been playing European pro ball since he was 14, but look at all these European busts in the NBA that were supposed to be sooo good. It's a different game with not as much talent. I think everyone should go to youtube, watch a video highlight of Rubio's game and tell me if you can really see him being an All-Star in the NBA.
There is no doubt in my mind that I would rather have Jonny Flynn leading my team than Rubio. There is not 1 bad thing to say about Flynn other than his height. His 3 point shot wasnt the best in college but scouts say he has stood out with having one of the best 3-point range out of all the PG's in the draft. The kid just has "it"....the intangibles. At the end of the day, whoever picks Flynn in the draft will be regarded as a "great pick", regardless if he goes 4-15. Jennings is a stud though and you can just tell he has talent up the wazoo. The upside with him is tremendous and he could also be a great spark to this team.
