Similar Players to Ricky Rubio Thus Far

If you plug in guards getting under 30 minutes a game and averaging about 9/7/3, you get an old Mark Jackson, a young Nate McMillan http://bkref.com/tiny/Xp6sL and a 21 year old Ramon Sessions.

I definitely see Rubio as a step up from these player, but still, you would like to think you would see flashier names jump out at you.....I guess maybe my excitement over his play is a little excessive.

Now, if you look at Rubio's 13 point and 14 assist effort in 30 minutes of play, you start seeing names like Magic Johnson (who did it 12 times), Steve Nash (6) and John Stockton. http://bkref.com/tiny/1OLif Those are the names you like to see.
