Can someone tell me what's so good about Rubio?

He does behind the back passes and he's been playing professional ball since his teen years. Is that all?

He looks extremely soft to me and very slow. He doesn't have the explosiveness and speed to be as good as point guards like Jason Kidd, Chris Paul, Tony Parker etc. He's great at passing but it doesn't mean that unathletic+greatpasser=NextSteveNash; Steve Nash's shooting ability and extremely high basketball IQ is what made him so deadly, as well as his ability to read his defenders and make the right moves to go past them.

Unless Ricky Rubio becomes one of the best shooters in the league, I don't see him being that all-star player that everyone else see's. He has a slow shot and is more of a set shooter. He also doesn't attack the basket very well.

I don't know, he's reminding me a lot of all the Mike Dunleavy Jr. hype back in '02. Soft players that get so hyped up because they remind people oh so much about great players from the past. Dunleavy was supposed to be the second coming of Larry Bird and now we got Ricky "Pistol Pete" Rubio coming over.

But yeah, don't get me wrong. If Ricky Rubio becomes great then I wouldn't be surprised since he's been getting hyped up anyways. I'll be happy for him if he does great here and I want him to succeed, but right now i'm having doubts. =/
