It was such an absolute joy to see Rubio play again. I really hope he's able to fully recover and stay healthy from here on out, I think he's become my favorite NBA player.

I think his body is stronger and he has got more muscle, but he still needs get physical endurance. When he played his first eleven minutes, he seemed a little tired and his legs seemed be dead at last two or three minutes.

We need the best Ricky from March, I hope he can get this endurance while he plays and it would be good he doesn't play any event at the All Star and use that entire week for active rest.

I guess it would help if he got a little bit stronger, but I think he can be a star without the extra muscle. Look at a guy like Steve Nash whose game is obviously similar to Rubio's, he's always been on the thin side and it hasn't stopped him from becoming an MVP. Even an attacking, driving PG like Jennings can make a name for himself and he's rail thin.

He just needs to be strong enough to finish at the rim. That was an issue lat year. He's definitely bulked up a bit now. I guess the backyard wrestling helped.

Steve Nash can't guard a flowerpot and Ricky is a good defender. A stronger body could help him with the screens.

Good to know that Ricky is just an average NBA starting point guard.

Come on guys we all know Jeff Teague, Jason Kidd, and Andre Miller are all better than him.

He has to prove he can win before he even gets mentioned in the same sentence with those guys.



Honestly though, he is just amazing. I can't imagine how good we will be once everyone is healthy and finds their groove.

Man, guys on that board are mostly guys who follow only their own teams and the best or most hyped players, and they base their opinion on teams and players they don't watch from their stats. I don't read a thing there anymore, when I did it caused me some serious IQ drop.
