Imagine after years of Teague, KAT playing with two players now that can play post entry passes.
Well he had two already after the trade deadline.
I'm a big fan of bringing Rubio back for years now. Hated when Suns got him from Utah and felt Wolves should have at the time. But I've said this before of course, this is ultimately more of a sideways move since they already had JMac breaking out here. JMac might be as good a passer as Rubio is. Blasphemy right? I can show you all the proof you need of the no look shouldn't be possible accurate passing, the lob passes all of it, plus he's a better net driver, better drive and kick, drive and dish, deadly examples of post entry with Kat already, better crossover, better change of speed, better 3pt shooter, he's just deadly at it all. The one and only real thing Rubio has over him is more height for defense. They are both constant motor players.
I don't want to have to run over the choice to bring Rubio back here. If they keep them both I suppose it's a depth proof point guard roster saving us from injuries. But it really is also going to be a shame that JMac won't get many minutes unless something like that happens, and it's quite possible now that he's not even retained with how many guards are here. I don't know what their plans are.
The problem as said is this ends up a more like a bolstering move or sideways move, not entirely as large of an improvement as we might expect. It's just more energy directed at something that was a strength after all the trading was done last spring instead of being directed where they have real weaknesses. For some of us it might make games more fun to watch. For those that never bought into Ricky Rubio they don't care and the honest truth is this was more a loss of leverage the team earned from giving JMac that gleague two way role shot here that proved to pay off. They maybe aren't going to take advantage of that now and it might be the largest mistake I warned about this summer.
