Consider the shooters Westbrook plays with and who Rubio plays with. Durant,Martin,Ibaka, even Thabo are much better shooters/finishers than anyone on the Min team besides Pek. Pek has also been out for a good number of the games Rubio has been back. The ball has to go in for it to be an assist. Regardless per 36 he still averages more assist a game than Westbrook on 19% usage compared to 32%. Rubio is definitely the better passer.
It's not like the twolves are the bobcats, his numbers last year were right in the same place and he had klove. Besides the argument isn't that Westbrook is a better passer, just that he's producing the same number of assists and a lot more points so swapping the two doesnt help any.
He is a equal to or better passer than Nash, as far as seeing the court and getting the ball there hes just as good. His decision making isn't as good as you pointed out with the over passing.
No, he's not even close. Making spectacular passes doesn't make you a great passer. He IS a great passer but Nash is on another level. Meaning prime Nash, not today Nash, even though today Nash is just as good as Rubio passing.
Its good in a way because he wants to get his teammates involved but at the same time he should just finish those. Hes still very young so I think over time he will. At 22 he still has plenty of time to do so.
I agree, he's not there yet though.
