    Rubio has to prove himself. A couple of games is not going to convince me.

    On Knicksonline, there were people who thought Gallinari was going to be the next Dirk Nowitzki.
    People were attacking me and a couple of other posters for not agreeing.

    In addition, there were people who thought Gallinari was the best available player, when the Knicks took him at #6.
    We now know that wasn't the case. I knew that wasn't the case the second the Knicks drafted him, but I guess 3 NBA seasons is enough proof.

    He didn't live up to the hype many people on this site had for him.

    Lol at that layup he missed the other day.

    KNicks brass is known to over hype the garbage they draft, it was part of there plan to make them look good for trade chips, remember when old man Walsh said Gallo was going to be next Larry Bird lol, unmolested layup

    rubio is good now because no one has seen him before just let teams adjust defense and hell be the second scotty brooks

    No way Paul and Rose would have won a championship with that team right?

    Rondo passes a lot because he doesn't have the ability to be a good scorer.

    How do you adjust to someone who sees and makes a pass before you even have time to think about getting in position? His vision, IQ and ability at his age are off the charts. Did you see his assist to Williams against the Spurs? How do you defend that?

    Scoring 10 ppg and 10 apg (and 4 rpg) is pretty damn nice. (And then look at the playoff pictures.) Pretty sure if you leaned on him, Rondo would up his scoring performance at the expense of his assists. But it's a great luxury to not having the team rely on your for scoring (re: Derrick Rose last year).

    Chandler can put up 10 ppg too, doesn't mean he's a good scorer. We saw much he scored when our team defended Rondo badly in the Playoffs. No way he scores that much with defense. Sure, he's got some moves around the rim and stuff, but he's not a good scorer.

    Rondo lights us up because we let him free release at the end of essentially all our offensive possessions and don't put a body on him when he drives until he's an inch from the hoop. As the games go on, we instead give him 8 feet of space to shoot from 16 feet from the hoop and of course, he drains those shots because we've let his scoring confidence grow three-fold by that point in the game. Rondo would win a scoring title if every team let him do what we let him do.
