Rubio only cost 15 million, shoots better than Conley, is a much better play maker and knew exactly how to run the Jazz offensive to maximum efficiency!
Salary aside, Rubio is not a very good player. You're in love with him for some reason but that doesn't make him any better of a basketball player.
You are willfully ignoring the fact that teams literally didn't guard him on the perimeter in the playoffs because he is just that bad.
You are ignoring the fact that with Rubio calling the PG shots we won 18 out of 22 games at the end of last season....and would have improved that much more this year with a tweak here and a tweak there!
The Jazz not wanting to trade him might not have been the problem...and that is scary.
Of course, the local talking heads and spinsters will say the Jazz value him highly, what else can they say? But to me, it is an indication of his league-wide value (or lack thereof) that there were ZERO rumours nationally about teams wanting him at the deadline. Think about it, an "almost All-star" with all his stats, and leadership, and yada, yada, yada.....and at least a hint of him being a misfit in Utah, and all kinds of talk about players league-wide getting moved but nobody was talking about him.
Your ignoring the fact that when we had Rubio, He had to play behind Harden and funnel him into Gobert during the Playoffs. Your also ignoring the fact he shot 20% from 3 during our short Playoff stint last year and 27% overall.
no maybe about it.
