Somebody's bound to have numbers like that after 3 blowouts. Rubio's a -45 in same span, yet everyone wants to hand him the keys to the franchise.
Who does? Who does that everyone included? Rubio is just a roleplayer who does the basic decently, but seems too slow right now to do much offensively at all (and I was personally against using 17m on a PG when we need starting forwards/wings).
Injuries forces us to play him with Dlo and too many other guards (who play WIDELY different from his style of basketball, to the point you have to ask why did they get Rubio back if is this is the plan), but if you stagger him with the right set up (after we injury free) he can be useful. We were 4 pts from wizards when he was lead guard, similar with Jmac, just by them playing basic teamball, as soon as DLo gets back in we get hammered back to blowout numbers. That was not a coincidence, it kept happening all game long.
I'm not even checking those numbers (I havent really learned how they calculate them, just get what it signals). Just what I see. Rubio isnt being ouright terrible out there, not even close, slowfooted passenger at worst. While Russell who is supposed to be our 2nd best player, is being our absolute worst one if you dont count Juancho/Layman duo.
