Rubio also focuses on Sergio Rodriguez, who believes that complements the team perfectly. “We got together very well. He’s a more scoring guard and I’m more of a distributor in the game. We are going with a lot of confidence and we can both end the game at any time.” As for the chances that Spain has in the Eurobasket, he explains that “We go with a lot of confidence. We know a lot but there are very new faces and we have to adapt a little.”
Storyline: Eurobasket
Snyder and Rubio, by all accounts, are working together on creating their plan. “Since I was traded, I’ve talked to coach every week,” Rubio said. “He wants me involved in a lot of the decisions he’s making. “I’ve never been with a coach that talks and gets involved that much and asks for opinion from a player that much. He listens a lot,” Rubio said. “He wants me to work with him for a different type of plays, and that’s great for a player like me that likes to think, likes to know, and get involved with the different sets, and to see what some of the sets are because it has worked for me.”
There’s reason to be optimistic here: if you can meld together the best stretches of Rubio’s career, he could be an All-Star caliber player. A top-five passer with the pull-up game of the last two seasons, an aggressive catch-and-shoot game like after the deadline last year, and the defense of 2015-16, well, that’d be something special. Something like a 2017 Jason Kidd? “Jason Kidd is a big example where he improved his shot and then he became one of the best point guards,” Rubio said. “The confidence they’ve shown for me from the beginning is awesome, and now I have to answer with good games. I have confidence in me.”
Ricky Rubio: “It was a little weird. I was six years in Minnesota. My name was in the papers with rumors and all that stuff for the last couple years, but never traded. This summer, I guess it was time. I have no regrets. I had a great time in Minnesota, but I think it was time for the both of us to move on. I think it was that time of our relationship that it didn’t work out the way we wanted, and we move on.”
