Do not exaggerate. 3 games, 18.3 MPG, 6.0 PPG, 29% FG, 27% 3P, 2.3 APG, 2.3 REB.

He is better and defend better than all you expected (as usual with all European players) but still has to demonstrate more things.

What is clear is that he has the experience and does not hesitate to shot in the clutch time, but sometimes makes your team lose. And still it is not a pure PG but a combo guard or even a SG.


The tape on him is much, much better than his stats thus far. And you can't quantify his defense with numbers.
He's been excellent running and defending the pick and roll, finding open shooters, and finishing around the basket. I think his shooting #'s will improve with more minutes.

So far he has only been running the pick and roll. I think Adelman wants him to be able to run more of his offense before he fully unleashes him and leaves him out there as the only PG.

2nd with 4 assists seems weak. That number should only get higher.

With a 6.4'5 wingspan he'll never be a good defender, but he has definitely been better than expected. Despite his stats sheet, he's had a considerable impact on the team. Hope he keeps improving, I'm barely bothered about his shooting percentages. Guy can shoot.

I don't think he's quite as strong as rookie Manu was, but he still seems to be able to finish inside just fine despite that because he's probably a better ball handler. I want to see a full season play out to see if his shooting stroke comes around but watching highlights of rookie Manu I don't think I saw anything Shved isn't also capable of or better at, they look like similar players it's a good comparison.

Love watching Shved play. Him + Rubio in the backcourt will be fun to watch in the upcoming years. I'm a believer that we've found a pretty good one. Either as a starter or a 6th man ala Manu.

But, Rubio/Shved ballhandling/passing/length would be fun to watch and help us immensely on the defensive front.


EDIT-Watched so Manu rookie highlights. Looks like he was better without the ball than Shved. Also, it looks like he had a slightly better shot/was a slightly better finisher around the rim. Although, Alexey might be a better passer/ballhandler. It's really too early to tell on the shot. He's been streaky.

Either way I'm excited. He's a player.

Can't remember how Manu was a rookie but I'm sure he already was the great finisher around the rim back then. Not to mention the handle of his.

I'd say Alexey is Manu-lite talent-wise. He's got quite the way to go.

Am I the only one who is skeptical about Rubio-Shved backcourt ? Both are unselfish players and can coexist on the floor but Shved may not be as effective on the court with Rubio as he maybe with a player like Ridnour. Alexey is at his best when he has the ball in his hands a lot and looks passive when is forced to play off the ball.

I think Shved looked bad when he played with Barea who tends to dominate the ball. And I'm not surprised that he had his best career game when he was given a lot minutes next to Ridnour who just brings the ball up the court then passes it to Shved and lets him create.

Rubio is not nearly ball dominant as Barea. But I think that him and Shved should be separated as much as possible. Shved coming off the bench to play with Ridnour, Barea probably traded and preferably for a good shooting SG who can start next to Rubio, may be someone like Courtney Lee or Redick or Danny Green, basically someone on a cheapish contract.

So the backcourt looks like this

Rubio(34)/Ridnour(14)
shooter(20)/Shved(28)

Play Shved like Ginobili and hopefully it will keep his next contract down.

I would agree with that. Shved ideally could play the 6th man role for us, but he can learn to play with Rubio/Love eventually...He's just doing what he's comfortable with right now. He still hasn't gotten his jump to fall like he would want, Rubio should be able to help there. He gives us someone who we can ISO at the end of the clock hopefully as well.

If Rick Adelman wasn't our coach, I might agree with you.
