- "... Lawson got to the line on a per possession basis significantly more frequently than anyone ... at .47 FTA per possession. Ricky Rubio followed him in second at .40 ...Rubio’s injured Euroleague play (also) earned him a top-10 spot, which tells you how well he effortlessly draws contact in the paint."
- Rubio had a True Shooting % of 57% - same as Flynn, better than Evans, Holiday and Jennings.
- "Rubio posts the two highest marks in (assists per 40 minutes) with his impressive ability to set the table for his teammates. His 10.4 assists per-40 dwarfs Ty Lawson’s 7.7 and is simply outstanding for any player, let alone an 18 year old in the second best League in the world. Even his Euroleague numbers are excellent, telling you a lot about how well he got everyone involved while playing essentially one-handed. Maybe he isn't "all hype" after all?"
- "Rubio is the top thief (steals per 40 min.) in our group, which is impressive since he did so in the top League outside of the NBA with a bad wrist. While the sample size of the Euroleague is obviously very limited, he ranks out extremely well in the ACB league as well."
