Stealing this from BSOS:

Games with 9+ assists and 1 or less turnovers:

Rubio 7
LeBron 4
then 7 guys with 2
and 23 guys with 1

Games with 11+ assists and 4+ steals:

Rubio 3
Rest of NBA 6

AST – TO ratio (MIN 10 games played and 23 minutes per game)

Ricky Rubio 4.88
Marcus Smart 3.64
= Difference of 1.24
Draymond Green 2.41
= Difference of 1.23
Marcus Smart is closer to #31 then he is #1.

And Ricky has missed 5.5 games too.

I mean, up to now his season is being completely crazy.

Meanwhile in Minnesota you can see Jeff Teague playing.

I imagine Ricky can get to 12apg next season after they learn each others game this season.

I wonder who it is who want more shots or more time with the ball. I don't think he's talking about Booker because Monty mentioned that sometimes Booker passes on too many shots because he wants to get people involved or something like that.

Yet he’s out with an illness? Why say anything at all?

He is talking in general i guess, but he said other things stronger than this comments about trade period and people trying to stat pad etc...
To me is clear that something happened to the team a while ago, effort is not there.
There is an article about what he said:

They think he is talking about Baynes, as he is the one who's effort and level has been trash lately. But who knows, I think Ricky tried different ways to shake the guys up and this one is a desperate one before everything's go in the wrong way.

I wouldn't have thought it was Baynes, but when Monty decided after Baynes being such an important factor early, that upon his return he would back up Frank Kaminsky, I could imagine he might not be too enthused. I wouldn't be if I were him. This guy was a key player in Boston and Frank was riding the pine in Charlotte. And Baynes was one of our 2 or 3 most impactful or important players the first 10 games after Ayton's suspension. So if we can't understand why he would back up Kaminsky, I can't imagine what he is thinking. I think I mentioned before that I felt early he might actually like it here (after thinking before the season he would probably want to get bought out to join a contender at some point later in the season), but after backing up Kaminsky, it would probably make sense for him to want to go somewhere he can make a bigger impact than backing up Kaminsky. I can imagine he wasn't too happy with Monty but at least Monty started him in the last game.

Whoever is, 1,2,3, I would trade them all, we need everybody buying in the project, just one guy disturbing that process can kill everything.

Rubio is putting his best career numbers in points (14.1), assists (9.2) and turnovers (just 2.5) per game. And his shooting percentage from two (45.5%) is the best one too, that indicates that he is finishing better at the rim.

He is playing great on both sides of the court... can we consider him a borderline All Star this season? I would love to hear his name in the conversation during the next month.

I dont think he will ever play an allstar game, as his stats will never be eye popping.
But thanks for your post man, I'm glad in this forum Ricky is getting recognized for what he brings.

It'll take winning to do something like that, with him making big plays in tight moments, something he hasn't done. Something nobody on the team has done, hence the last second losses over n over n over again (except last night, they backed into a win).

I thought Rubio would struggle a little more this season since we're a less organised and experienced squad than he's used to playing with and of course playing alongside Booker who's been the so everything guy for the team for the last few years raised some questions for me.

But to see him having one of his best season's with us is a pleasant surprise and honestly, I love seeing the ball in his hand. Yeah he's still not a good shooter but he has hit some clutch shots and his playmaking is as excellent as always. It just feels good to have the ball in the hands of a competent, experienced and confident playmaker; something we've lacked since Nash

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

I think Rubio hit a few late key shots (and missed a few). Its hard for anyone to make big plays if Monty goes to iso book for pretty much the fourth quarter in close games. And i dont think that it is a prerequisite for being an allstar, either. That is just one aspect.

In general i think Ricky has deserved to be in all star consideration just as much as Booker if not more.

Booker isoing is **** stupid. I probably say it more than anyone. Monty acts like he's got Kobe Bryant in his prime with that bull.

It happend in Utah too with Mitchell and the result was awful. Except that from time to time Mitchel makes incredible clutch shots, but the rest of 90% of the time was useless.

I used to say it a lot, but I can't complain too much any more about his tendencies. At the beginning of the season he was playing within the system and we were winning. Eventually if he isos too much people won't like playing with him much unless it was leading to a ton of wins like Harden does...and he is just surrounded by mostly role players...spot up shooters, a guy like Tucker, Capela. Seems we have weapons for great team ball.
